Did you know in the first 46 weeks of 2019 there were 45 school shootings?
This “new normal” is unacceptable.

Schools across the country have been increasingly faced with the active shooter epidemic, forcing them to make the trade-off between the need for heightened security screening and the desire to preserve a welcoming learning environment. Evolv Express eliminates the need to choose by providing a respectful, touchless security experience, ensuring kids are free to learn without fear, making security human again.

In September 2019, the nation's first free-flow, touchless weapons-detection system Evolv Express® was launched in schools to stop guns, bombs and large knives from entering school campuses. Express uses a new patented method of threat detection, the Evolv Cortex AI™ software platform, offering a frictionless, respectful and safe solution. Express is rated, tested and proven to reliably screen 60 students per minute, 10X faster than metal detectors, and uses fewer resources saving schools previously using metal detectors up to 70% in labor costs.

You can now stop guns and explosives from entering your schools without compromising the student experience in a touchless, socially-distanced manner. Only with Evolv Express.


Seeing is Believing!

Imagine being a student or teacher and walking into school without emptying your pockets, backpacks or briefcases knowing everyone inside was thoroughly screened for weapons. Evolv pioneered Human Security to stop incidents like Sandy Hook without making our daily lives feel like entering prisons. 

Evolv Express is installed at Spartanburg County School District 6 and Florence One School District. Watch it in action:


The uniqueness about Express is that it delivers:

  • Zero bottlenecks at entrances with student throughput of more than 1,000 students per 15-minute time frame (>3,600 ppl/hour, 10X faster than traditional metal detectors)
  • A non-intrusive, frictionless experience ensuring every student gets screened without the need to manually search every backpack, sports bag and instrument case that enters the school with no stopping, taking off coats, backpacks or emptying their pockets of personal items
  • Far fewer nuisance alarms, because the system is smart enough to differentiate threats from the coins, keys, cell phones and other personal items that would normally alarm on traditional metal detectors, enabling efficient operation and training
  • Image-aided alarms providing a digital image showing exactly where the potential threat is on the student or in their bag, making secondary screening targeted and efficient  
  • Up to 70% savings in labor costs because schools need far fewer systems and guards to screen students and visitors daily
  • Friendly and welcoming security, fitting into your key entry points, with the ability to add graphic panels to Evolv Express that can be customized and installed into the system with your school logo or messaging to maintain the desired feel of your learning environment
