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 and public health threats.
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.

Champaign Unit 4 School District Builds Trust with Students While Increasing Safety By Leveraging Evolv Express® System
One year ago, Valarian Couch was hired as the CIO at Champaign Unit #4 Schools in Champaign, Illinois and given a joint charter—overseeing the district’s IT infrastructure and operations, and managing the district’s physical security. The Evolv Express® completely changes this negative perception into a positive one of trust. It is time for us to enter into the 21st century, and the Evolv Express and its integration points with other security capabilities is an important facilitator of this trust.”
Fayette County Schools Deploy Evolv Express® Systems to Foster a Safe and Respectful Learning Environment
“We had long queues pile up at our entrances, which were a threat themselves, and many of our students missed their first period of classes. Metal detectors simply are not a viable option for schools.” After applying for the GiveEvolv Grant - which aims to grant schools with a fully funded Express system and subscription for 4 years, the GiveEvolv board selected Fayette County Schools, concluding they had found the perfect inaugural candidate for the program. Hear their story.
Spartanburg, South Carolina School District 6 Enhances School Safety With Free-Flow Weapons Detection Powered by Evolv Express®
The Spartanburg, South Carolina District 6 School District prides itself on being forward-thinking and progressive. Its unwavering commitment to its students and local community doesn’t stop with academics. Keeping its students and staff safe from threats is also a top priority for the district. Dr. Mark Smith who has served the district for 24 years as a teacher, principal, and administrator said "We’ve all witnessed the tragedy of school shootings over the years, and it is our worst nightmare.” Smith and other members of the team started vetting walk-through metal detectors as an option, and for many reasons landed on Evolv.
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.
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 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.
Give Your Team Eyes on Your Entrances with Situational Cameras
Creating an environment where students, faculty and visitors feel safe – and actually are – is your top priority. 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.
