Elevating Physical Security and Visitor Screening Experiences in Small to Large Facilities

In today’s fast-paced world, ensuring the safety and well-being of visitors and employees in facilities of all sizes is important to facility managers, security personnel and building owners. The need for robust physical security solutions has never been greater. Pavion, a leading provider of integrated solutions for fire, safety, security, and critical communications has partnered with Evolv Technologies, the leader in AI-based weapons detection security screening to bring Evolv Express, an advanced weapons detection system that uses artificial intelligence and sensor technology to instantly distinguish a phone from a firearm. Used in hundreds of stadiums, arenas, performing arts centers, schools, hospitals, and public spaces around the country, Evolv Express offers an advanced security layer that creates safer spaces in a respectful and efficient manner. 

The Changing Landscape of Security

In recent years, the landscape of security has evolved dramatically. From small businesses to large-scale facilities, the need for innovative physical security solutions has grown dramatically. Because of the recent pandemic and the emerging threat of gun violence in America, we can no longer rely solely on traditional security methods–we must adapt to these threats and challenges with new security solutions that offer safe and secure means of entering facilities while at the same time alleviating the stress of having to go through security. In a report on Guns in America, published by Evolv Technology, it states that the American Psychological Association found that Americans are living with an increased level of stress and anxiety since March 2020, when the coronavirus forced businesses, schools and borders to close. The research reveals that people have a troubling level of anxiety around gun violence, shootings and terrorism events, and those levels reached a worrisome intensity in 2021. The partnership between Pavion and Evolv, exemplifies the commitment to enhancing security measures while simultaneously prioritizing visitor well-being.

Prioritizing Visitor Well-being

While security is the primary goal, Pavion and Evolv Technology recognize the importance of visitor well-being. Security should not come at the expense of a positive visitor experience. Evolv Technology has developed a cutting-edge solution for security screening with their innovative Evolv Express system. This system revolutionizes the way we approach physical security by leveraging advanced technology to provide a seamless and efficient visitor screening process. It combines state-of-the-art threat detection with exceptional visitor experience, a rare feat in the security world. Evolv Express strikes the perfect balance between ensuring safety and respecting the dignity and comfort of visitors. It reduces stress and anxiety associated with security screening, leading to a more welcoming and inviting atmosphere for visitors entering facilities.

Key Features of Evolv Express:

  • High-speed Threat Detection: Evolv Express uses advanced sensors and artificial intelligence to swiftly detect concealed weapons or suspicious items. This ensures that security personnel can respond to potential threats proactively. This also allows for groups to enter a building simultaneously as the Evolv unit can identify who is the potential threat in the crowd based on AI.
  • Enhanced Visitor Experience: Visitors no longer need to endure long lines and invasive searches. The Evolv Express system streamlines the screening process, making it less intrusive and more efficient, ultimately enhancing visitor well-being. This can be extremely beneficial in buildings such as schools who often use one door for entry and have students coming off busses in large groups all at one time.
  • Non-Intrusive Screening: Unlike traditional metal detectors, Evolv Express eliminates the need for visitors to remove coats, belts, or shoes. It even accommodates individuals with disabilities and medical devices without compromising security.
  • Real-time Data Analysis: The system provides real-time analytics, allowing security teams to adapt and respond to changing threat levels swiftly. This feature is invaluable in maintaining a secure environment.
  • Scalable and Customizable: Whether you run a small business or a large facility, the Evolv Express system can be tailored to your specific needs, ensuring a comprehensive security solution for any organization.
