    TSX-V: ACT

    TORONTO, April 2 /CNW/ - Active Control Technology Inc. (TSX-V:ACT) today
announced that two Original Equipment Manufactures (OEMs) have agreed to
market QuikMesh(TM), ACT's new wireless data communications system for the
security industry. QuikMesh was launched last week at the ISC West security
conference and exhibition in Las Vegas.
    Both OEM customers, which will be disclosed when formal supply agreements
have been executed, have global reach. One has signed a letter of intent to
jointly develop and market the QuikMesh Series through its international
distribution network. It has provided volume guidance of $100,000 in sales
over the next 12 months.
    The other customer has approved ACT's new QuikMesh Mobile Reader, a
wireless hand-held device used for credential card verification, following its
own in-house testing and a live installation. It has provided volume guidance
of $250,000 over the next 12 months for this first QuikMesh application.

    About QuikMesh
    QuikMesh wirelessly links security peripheral devices such as card
readers and biometric readers with central computer panels that manage
security systems. Ideal applications include interior environments such as

    Utilizing "mesh" network technology with multiple wireless node modules,
QuikMesh remains operational even if line-of-sight communication links are
blocked or disrupted. The system reduces installation costs for security
communications systems by up to 40 percent. It also offers the following
features and benefits: plug-and-play capability, self-healing, highly-secure
encryption, compatibility with most original equipment manufacturer (OEM)
access control panels, and it is designed to meet global standards.
