 KNOGO AWARDED MULTIMILLION-DOLLAR HEALTH CARE CONTRACT
 HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Knogo Corporation


(NYSE: KNO) was selected by Alternative Living Systems, Inc., Dyersburg, Tenn., as the sole supplier of Electronic Article Surveillance Systems for their newly created health care division.
 Alternatives Chief Executive Officer James Morris signed the contract with Knogo after what he called, "A very careful and thorough review of all competitive systems." Morris and his associates have more than 30 years of experience in manufacturing and marketing products to the health care industry. They will market Knogo's products through a combination of direct sales and more than 125 associated franchisees.
 "This contract represents the largest health-care oriented order ever received by our North American division, and it is a great opportunity for Knogo and Alternative Living," said Thomas A. Nicolette, president of Knogo Corporation.
 Knogo is a world leader in the design, manufacture, and distribution of Electronic Asset Protection (EAP) systems. Its systems are used to protect a broad variety of installations, including health care institutions, hospitals, corporate offices, museums, libraries, bookstores, and all types of retail stores. Its systems use the latest radio frequency and micro-magnetic technologies available to produce reliable, accurate and highly sensitive electronic surveillance systems.
 All Knogo systems are designed for easy integration with its advanced Closed Circuit Video Surveillance Systems (CCVS) which provide for video monitoring of facilities. These video systems can also capture live transaction information and record them digitally onto videotape for permanent storage.
 The first nursing home electronic surveillance system was developed by Knogo in 1976 based on their innovative product called Kno-Stray. The device, which tracks the whereabouts of patients such as those afflicted with Alzheimers disease, is a passive non-allergenic wafer activated by Swept Radio Frequencies (SRF) and is worn as an ankle bracelet by the patient.
 Knogo, founder of the Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) industry in 1966, has installed its anti-theft systems in thousands of sites worldwide. The company has its headquarters in Hauppauge, Long Island, with sales and service facilities throughout North America, as well as wholly owned subsidiaries and distributorships in more than 30 countries. This year marks Knogo's 25th anniversary as the "Standard for Electronic Asset Protection."
