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.

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.

Four Key Takeaways

Screens up to 1,000 students in 15 minutes — 10X faster than metal detectors.

With image-aided alarms, a digital image shows where the potential threat is on the student or their backpack.

With its free-flow nature, it respects the privacy of students and fits into your key entry points.

With 10X the flow of metal detectors, far fewer systems and staff are needed.
