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. 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.

Fast and Easy Transport

Easily move Evolv Express wherever it is needed throughout your venue. Streamline tear-down, transport, storage, and set-up with our Mobility Cart solution.

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.

Five Ways Data Improves
Physical Security

Access to digital information is changing the world dramatically, and physical security is no exception. Leading venues across sports, entertainment, theme parks, industrial workplaces, schools, healthcare, and places of worship can improve their security posture by leveraging better information about visitor curves, alarm rates, and threats across their venue during specific events.

Manage Evolv Express Systems Remotely with the MyEvolv Portal

The complementary application to Evolv Express®, MyEvolv Portal provides the ability to interact with Evolv Express through a singular interface.

The portal provides web-based or mobile access to Evolv Insights™ analytics, global support and service documentation, and Evolv Express system administrator functions, like proactive notifications and remote scanner access and management.

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.
