What is Evolv Technology, and How Can It Protect Your Facility, School or Venue?

If you’re like most administrators or owners, despite all the security measures you have put in place at your venue, school, or other facility, you probably always have the lingering question: “Is it enough?” New threats are emerging all the time, and even the most robust security systems eventually need to be updated. Thankfully, a new technology called Evolv is helping facilities like yours actually get ahead of these threats, rather than feeling like you’re always running to keep up. Let’s talk about what Evolv is and how it can give you greater security and peace of mind about your facility.

What Is Evolv?

At most major sporting events, concerts, or other large gatherings, you’ve likely seen security guards using metal detectors to screen attendees for weapons. Metal detectors are still the most common security measure at high-traffic venues, and they are increasingly being used in schools and other facilities, as well. But they do have some drawbacks: they’re slow, they often require multiple security guards to operate, they produce lots of false positives, and they can’t detect many of the new types of weapons that have been developed in recent years.

Evolv Technology is a cutting-edge security solution that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to screen people for weapons in a fraction of the time it takes traditional metal detectors. Evolv’s Express system can screen up to 4000 people per hour without slowing down the flow of traffic, and its software is constantly updating to stay ahead of the latest threats. In fact, just in the first six months of 2022, Evolv stopped more than 30,000 guns and 27,000 knives from entering customers’ venues, schools, hospitals, workplaces, and other facilities.

How Evolv Works

 Evolv takes weapons detection to the next level, far surpassing the accuracy of metal detectors. It does so by integrating with your current security ecosystems, combining state-of-the-art sensors with artificial intelligence and detailed venue analytics to deliver remarkably accurate results at unprecedented levels of speed. This has the dual benefit of keeping your people safer while also avoiding unnecessary backups at checkpoints.

Benefits of Using Evolv

There are many reasons to consider upgrading your security to include Evolv Technology. Let’s look at just a few key benefits:

·        Improved traffic flow during screening. Evolv detects weapons at walking speed, so there’s no need for people to slow down or stop when going through security. This can help reduce the need for bag checks and emptying pockets, thereby reducing congestion and frustration for your guests, employees, and other visitors.

·        Fewer false positives. Evolv’s artificial intelligence software is constantly learning, which means it easily recognizes true threats while producing far fewer false positives than traditional metal detectors. This not only saves time and resources, but it also helps to reduce the number of people who need to be screened manually.

·        Unmatched accuracy. In tandem with reduced false alarms, Evolv delivers returns with stunning accuracy, so your security team can minimize and neutralize threats much faster.

·        Faster deployment. Because Evolv can be integrated with your existing security infrastructure, there’s no need to rip and replace your current system. This can save you both time and money in the long run.
