Evolv Express Weapons Detection System

Evolv Express®

The Evolv weapons detection system combines powerful sensor technology with proven artificial intelligence (AI), security ecosystem integrations, and comprehensive venue analytics to ensure safer, more accurate threat detection at an unprecedented speed and volume.

Fast, Efficient Threat Screening

Express screens 3,600 ppl/hr — 10X faster than metal detectors — for a line-free experience. No stopping. No emptying pockets or removing bags.

Simple Operation for Faster Resolution

See in real-time where the potential threat is on a person’s body or in their bag with clear, visual alerts, focusing your security professionals' time and effort on addressing the real threats.

Flexible Deployment Options

Deploy for indoor and outdoor screening. Easy to set up and move. Multiple deployment options including single or double-lane configurations.

Integration & 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.

How It Works

See how Evolv Express works to save time, money, and improve security for everyone.

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.

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. Ensuring a frictionless guest experience while achieving unparalleled levels of security by detecting weapons at your entryways is the work of Evolv Express.

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.

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 integrate available security cameras directly into your security operations center (SOC), video management system (VMS) or other AI video analytics system.

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.
