The company said the new venue will be operationally smarter, safer and more sustainable.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The NBA’s Sacramento Kings just made a smart move.

Johnson Controls and the Kings announced on Tuesday an agreement to integrate the building automation systems at Golden 1 Center — the Kings’ future home arena — as well as its fire and life safety systems. The company said it will make the new venue operationally smarter, safer and more sustainable in order to enhance the fan experience.

“The fan experience at Golden 1 Center will be second-to-none thanks to innovative technology and advanced arena operations,” said Sacramento Kings President Chris Granger. “Our safety, fan experience and sustainability goals are all being achieved with the help of Johnson Controls expertise in intelligent buildings and stadiums.”
