TORONTO – October 11, 2022 – Patriot One Technologies Inc. (TSX: PAT) (OTCQX: PTOTF) (FRA: 0PL) (“Patriot One” or the “Company”) today announced its SmartGateway physical security solution was selected by OVG360’s Angel Of The Winds Arena in Everett, Washington.
The over 8,000-seat arena is home to the Everett Silvertips hockey team, as well as various entertainment events throughout the year such as concerts and shows. The SmartGateway will be deployed at entrances to keep patrons, staff, players and performers safe from weapons in the venue, without forcing them to stop and empty their pockets of personal items during security screenings. This “frictionless” artificial intelligence (AI)-driven weapons-scanning capability keeps attendees safe, while eliminating delays caused by traditional weapons-screening technology and operations.
“We will improve the security of our venue with Patriot One’s SmartGateway, while elevating the overall experience for fans and everyone involved in our events,” said Corey Margolis, OVG360 General Manager of Angel Of The Winds Arena. “We strive to give all our visitors a fast, convenient and modern entry experience, and that is being made possible with the SmartGateway. As we continue to refine our processes, the system and entry have become extremely fast, beyond our expectations and a true game changer for the venue.”
Not only will patrons and staff not need to wait in long security lines or remove personal items from their pockets with Patriot One’s SmartGateway, the solution also requires fewer security guards to operate. As a result, any extra security personnel can be redeployed to other parts of the arena for higher value tasks, such as responding to incidents.
“Arenas, stadiums and entertainment venues are looking for modern ways to elevate the patron experience, and security is a main part of that since it’s often the first thing attendees encounter when they arrive,” said Peter Evans, CEO of Patriot One. “Our SmartGateway solution provides guests with a positive entry experience, only stopping patrons that are carrying a knife, gun or other weapon – allowing the other 99% of people to walk right in without stopping. We are very pleased to continue building our business with Oak View Group, following our strategic partnership announcement last week.”
