Integrations & Performance Analytics

Powerful system integrations and Evolv Insights® analytics help your venue operations and security management teams make evidence-based decisions to streamline staffing needs, improve visitor flow, and optimize both safety and experience for all visitors.

We will change the way you think about security.

Visitors want to move quickly through security checkpoints at a seamless pace, knowing they’re well-protected everywhere inside your venue—while your security teams want the assurance that they can reliably pinpoint and stop threats. This shouldn’t be a trade-off.

Weighing the Value of Evolv Express® System Integrations and Evolv Insights® for K-12 Schools

In response to school gun violence, many K-12 schools are looking at ways to bolster their security. Walkthrough and hand-held metal detectors are often cited as an option. But these legacy approaches to weapons screening are simply not a good fit for several reasons. In this whitepaper, we outline 8 ways to use security screening data from Evolv Insights® and Integrations to improve school safety.

Experience it OnDemand

A dialed in, coordinated security system is fundamental to your venue’s safety and success. Integrating screening within your security ecosystem simplifies the management of your security products and allows you to focus on the processes – ConOps, and people – guards, that help keep your visitors safe. Watch the video to learn more or see it live at a location near you.

Reduce Venue Risks with Connected Security Technologies

Providing visibility into what weapons are being detected, where, and when should help to accelerate response time, not unduly burden IT staff or introduce new risks. By offering built-in integrations to your existing security technologies, Evolv Express® accelerates your team’s ability to respond to potential threats at your venue’s entryways.

Make Evidenced-Based Security Decisions Using Actionable Insights

With automated data collection and access to relevant weapons detection system performance, screening statistics, and visitor flow and arrival curves, it’s now possible to move away from reactive threat management and intuition-led decision making and instead, use data for actionable insights.

Manage Evolv Express Systems Remotely with the MyEvolv Portal

Enhance Your Security Response with Integrated Communications

When your teams need extra help, whether because of visitor overcrowding, staffing constraints, a guest 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.

Give Your Team Eyes on Your Entrances with Situational Cameras

Creating an environment where 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 incorporate available security cameras directly into your security operations center (SOC), video management system (VMS) or other AI video analytics system.
