A safer world; a better worship experience

Temples, churches, mosques, synagogues and other houses of worship are safe spaces for prayer, comfort and enriching experiences that people deserve. However, these religious sanctuaries are faced with the challenges of adapting to changing health and safety guidelines in a way that is viable for them while also continuing to inspire trust and confidence in their congregation and visitors.

Introducing Evolv Express®

Traditional security screening was not designed for today's dynamic threats. At Evolv Technology, we’re partnering with religious institutions to provide the next generation of security screening that’s highly accurate, and yet unobtrusive, to ensure congregants and visitors feel safe and welcome. Evolv Express® is the world’s first AI-based weapons detection screening solution, transforming physical security screening into human safety by enhancing the visitor experience while continuing to improve security.

Research Report

Guns in America: A Survey on Public Violence, Anxiety, and Threats

"Guns in America: A Survey on Public Violence, Anxiety, and Threats" is a new report that quantifies not only the impact Americans’ anxiety around guns has on their everyday lives but also demonstrates the choices they make – and the businesses they patronize – are affected by the level of risk or threat Americans perceive those places to have.  


5 Elements You Need to Transform Physical Security

The world has changed. Unfortunately, it is less safe rather than more so. The worldwide threat of terrorism is higher than ever. Gun ownership in the U.S. continues to rise exponentially. The number of mass killings increases each year. COVID-19 has shown that a potentially lethal disease can spread surreptitiously from person to person wherever people are gathered en masse.

Intelligent Security Screening

Unlike the invasive pat downs, wands, bag checks and long lines experienced with legacy metal detector technology, the Evolv Express system keeps your entrances flowing by reliably detecting guns and other weapons as visitors and staff walk through at a natural pace, carrying their phones, bags and other harmless personal items.

Enhance Your Security Response with Integrated Communications

When your staff needs immediate assistance, whether because of a guest health emergency or an escalated threat situation, with Evolv Express Request Assistance, this communication happens instantaneously.

See What's Happening at Your Entrances

Often added security means more manpower, but not with Evolv.  With Evolv Express, you now have the ability to integrate available security cameras directly into your security operations center (SOC), video management system (VMS) or other AI video analytics system.

Make Data-Driven Security Decisions

Evolv Insights® is a powerful analytics dashboard accessible through the secure My Evolv Portal. You can use it to comprehensively review, analyze and gather insights from your Express screening systems. Explore and compare data such as visitor arrival curves and counts, system detection performance, alarm statistics and detection settings.
