A safer world; a better student experience

Imagine your students, faculty and visitors walking through a weapons-screening system as they enter your school building without stopping, emptying their pockets or bags, or waiting in line. Today it’s possible to provide enhanced safety without sacrificing the welcoming experience we’ve come to expect at school. Evolv Technology is revolutionizing security screening by combining advanced sensors and AI to protect students, faculty, and visitors during school hours and at a variety of other indoor and outdoor school activities and events from concealed weapons.

Introducing Evolv Express®

Traditional security screening was not designed for today's dynamic threats. At Evolv Technology, we’re partnering with companies, venues and schools to provide next-level security screening that’s highly accurate and unobtrusive. Evolv Express® is the world’s first AI-based touchless security screening, transforming physical security screening into human safety, by improving the student, faculty and visitor experience while continuing to improve security.

Enhance Your Security Response with Integrated Communications

When your teams need extra help, whether because of overcrowding, staffing constraints, a student health emergency, or an escalated threat situation that needs additional personnel to resolve, it is critical to leverage your existing security processes and systems so that help can arrive as soon as possible. With Evolv Express Request Assistance, this communication happens instantaneously, and can be integrated into your existing security technologies, accelerating your team’s ability to respond to potential threats at your school's entryways.

Features & Benefits

Intelligent Security Screening with Image-Aided Alarms

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

Creating an environment where students, faculty and visitors feel safe – and actually are – is your top priority.

Case Study

Rural Nebraska Winnebago Public Schools Improves School Security Without Negatively Impacting Student Experience

“We saw an uptick in school violence and what was happening in the media,” Adam James, Safety Director at Winnebago Public Schools relays. “We had not experienced a problem with weapons. We had some small incidents but nothing that posed a threat. However, we wanted to get out in front of potential threats. We had implemented a video surveillance system 3 years ago, and it has been a big success. But we felt that we needed something beyond video at our entrances.” Then they found Evolv Express through one of our partners, ICU Technologies.
