Better protect your venue; elevate the visitor experience

Venues are now faced with the challenges of adapting to changing health and safety guidelines while inspiring trust and confidence in visitors. The public craves enriching experiences, so venues are at a crossroads. Evolv is partnering with theme parks, entertainment venues, performing arts centers, stadiums & arenas, museums and aquariums to provide a new standard of excellence for security screening all while enriching the entrance experience.

Say Hello to Evolv Express®

Traditional security screening was built for a different time. It’s slow, intrusive, and it only protects you from threats that were known in the past. At Evolv Technology, we provide next-level security screening that’s highly accurate and unobtrusive. We believe that physical security screening should be completely touchless and seamless—and it should adapt to the ever-evolving threats of today and tomorrow.

Seeing is Believing

Evolv Express transforms your guest experience while improving security. It provides guest ingress that is dramatically faster, more convenient, and more secure.

Features & Benefits

Next Generation Security Screening with Image-Aided Alarms

When it comes to security, we all want the same thing: a system that is quick, efficient and accurate. Evolv Express is designed to bring you all three. It's an intelligent screening solution that provides accurate automatic detection of weapons where you need it most, keeping your entrances flowing with unparalleled, reliable weapons detection.

Features & Benefits

Integrated Communications for Efficient Emergency Response

When a security incident occurs, it takes time for on-site personnel to address and resolve the situation. But the right communication to your off-site colleagues can speed that response and the resolution process. Evolv Express Request Assistance enables you to send an instant request for help — allowing you to resolve issues faster and keep guests feeling safe.
