Las Vegas’ Plaza deploys AI-driven threat detection technology

Downtown Las Vegas’ Plaza Hotel and Casino has unveiled the deployment of Patriot One Technologies’ multi-sensor threat detection platform, Patscan.

Phase one of the deployment of the Patscan platform, offering increased security and safety for resort guests, staff and partners, is slated to begin imminently.

Furthermore, in addition to the Patscan VRS component of the platform, for the detection of visible and invisible threats, such as weapons, disturbances, elevated body temperature identification and facial mask detection, the Plaza will also deploy a solution for concealed weapon detection.

“We’re excited to be working with the Plaza Resort & Casino in downtown Las Vegas,” shared Dietmar Wennemer, president and COO of Patriot One“Our business development team has been working with a number of Las Vegas resorts and casinos since setting up operations in the city back in December 2017.

“With the commercialisation of our Patscan platform early this summer, and the re-opening of the resorts and casinos, we’re seeing an increase in interest for our solutions, including our elevated body temperature solution, which can assist in identifying potential viral threats. 

“The Plaza has moved quickly, and we’ll begin deploying this quarter for the upcoming holiday season, including the Plaza’s New Year’s Eve fireworks celebration.”

In addition to the aforementioned deployments, the venue also plans to undertake a corporate awareness campaign to raise its profile in the US domestic investment community, and has engaged Winning Media to provide Patriot One with a breadth of targeted digital media and corporate brand recognition initiatives. 

“We’re excited to bring this new innovative, AI-driven threat detection technology to the Plaza,” Jay Franken, general manager of the Plaza Hotel & Casino, said of the partnership.

“Popular for a classic Vegas experience and conveniently located at the top of the Fremont Street Experience, the Plaza Hotel & Casino typically welcomes thousands of guests a day. 

“So, we are pleased to be the first in the downtown area to implement new physical and health security solutions to better protect our guests and staff.”
