Evolv Express Weapons Detection System

Concealed Weapons Detection

Evolv Express® uses advanced sensor technology and artificial intelligence to distinguish between weapons and everyday items. It improves security by reliably detecting threats and enables a directed search, leading to a more dignified and respectful screening process that empowers security professionals and enhances the visitor experience.

We will change the way you think about security.

Flow Icon

Fast, Efficient Screening

Express screens up to 4,000 ppl/hr — which can be multiple times faster than traditional metal detectors.

Alarm Icon

Image-Aided Alarms

With "red box" alerts, see in real-time where the potential threat is on a person’s body or in their bag for fast resolution.

Insights Icon

Performance Analytics

Evolv Insights® analytics help you make evidence-based security decisions.

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.

Evolv offers an integrated suite of digitally enabled sensors, analytics and communication that deters, detects and orchestrates response to weapons that cause loss of life.

Mercy Prescribes Security Screening for Its Emergency Departments to Ameliorate Clinical Staff Safety Concerns

A central mission for Mercy is to ensure that patients and visitors feel as safe and secure as possible when visiting one of Mercy's facilities. It is also critical that hospital staff, or coworkers as Mercy refers to them, can provide care to patients in a safe environment. “Our patients, family members, and staff need to feel secure because everyone who is entering has gone through the same processes to ensure that no one brings a weapon into one of our facilities that they could use to harm themselves, one of our coworkers, or another patient or family member of a patient," says Adam Whitten, Mercy's VP of Operational Excellence.

Data Analytics

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.

Evolv Integrations

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.
