Champions Club Texas selects Athena Security’s Weapon Detection System

AUSTIN, Texas – Athena Security’s Concealed Weapons Detection System has been selected by Champions Club Texas to protect its patrons, members, and staff at a first-of-its-kind hospitality destination in Houston.

Located in Houston’s Westchase community, Champions Club Texas features a full-service hotel, lounge and bar with Southern-inspired cuisine and private-membership poker. Currently they’re celebrating its grand opening as a destination offering something for everyone, a destination made safer thanks to the selection of the Athena Security Weapons Detection System.

“At Champions we are raising the bar in hospitality and gaming, and that includes ensuring the most comfortable and safe atmosphere for our valued customers,” said Trent Touchstone, director of security, Champions Club Texas. “Athena Security is a solution that detects weapons upon entry and is one of the many layers of security protocols in place at Champions that improves operational efficiency of our security team as a workforce multiplier.”

Athena's Concealed Weapons Detection System (WDS)/Walk Through Metal Detector is engineered to detect a wide range of mass casualty threats without requiring individuals to stop as they pass through the detector. As a result, there’s no need to have individuals remove phones, wallets, or other extraneous items from their pockets thanks to Athena’s proprietary multiple-sensor detection method.

Security Systems News (SSN) reached out to Athena Security to ask them what makes their WDS such a good fit for Champions Club Texas, and what an ideal candidate for Athena Security looks like. “Athena Security is such a great fit for Champions Club Texas because of the combined accuracy for detecting concealed firearms, and connecting real-time situational awareness to potential threats," said Athena Security co-founder and President Lisa Falzone.  "Athena’s real-time reporting and analytics help Champions Club Texas make data-driven decisions. Security teams appreciate the multiple layers of security, quality control, and compliance features that further reduce risk. Any hospital, casino, or warehouse that is looking to add additional layers of integrated entryway security will be pleased with Athena Security's approach, WDS solution, and the highest level of customer service."

Touchstone, a 28-year veteran of the United States Marshals Service with a long history of threat analysis, added his appreciation for Athena Security’s ability to provide a feature-rich entryway security experience with the ability to automate and accomplish so much remotely due to the need for 24/7 attention for the hotel and club membership.
