May 19, 2022  By SP&T Staff

The Central Bank Centre has chosen Patriot One Technologies’ SmartGateway solution to help secure the entrances at the Rupp Arena and Lexington Opera House in Kentucky. The venues have said they will implement this technology in a phased approach, starting with entrances at the Lexington Opera House and the VIP entrances at Rupp Arena, eventually to cover both facilities in their entirety.”

After working with Patriot One on several demos and testing the technology during live events at the Rupp Center, we selected them as our patron security screening solution of choice for protecting our large entertainment venues,” said Brian Sipe, general manager at Central Bank Centre in a statement.

“We were previously using walk-through metal detectors to secure the entrances and experienced very long lines and unhappy crowds.

That’s not what we want for our valued patrons when they come to an event at the Central Bank Center. We chose Patriot One to help us elevate that patron experience through their next-generation security solutions and weapons detection capabilities.”


Patriot One’s SmartGateway uses AI-powered sensors to scan for guns, knives and other prohibited items without requiring patrons to divest of personal items. Additionally, PatriotOne says this solution is designed specifically for stadiums and other large venues with large volumes of people entering and exiting.
