Concealed Weapons Detection (CWD)

Protecting Your Employees, Guests & Facilities

Motorola Solutions Concealed Weapons Detection (CWD)*, powered by Evolv Technology, helps to proactively keep people and assets safe by using advanced sensors and artificial intelligence to detect a wide range of concealed weapons and threats. It is the world’s first and only touchless security screening solution that is conducive to supporting post-pandemic security screening requirements. This solution operates up to ten times faster and far more effective than traditional screening methods, while providing a touchless experience. 

Integrating Avigilon Control Center (ACC), this solution will help you see, understand and act on threats with more speed and accuracy than ever before. Once a threat is detected and confirmed by a security screener, alarms are sent directly to ACC. Cameras onboard the towers then stream live video to ACC, which gets recorded alongside the fixed video security feeds that are installed at the venue.    



Evolv Express seamlessly screens up to 3,600 people per hour (60 per minute), eliminating any bottlenecks at points of entry. Unlike legacy metal detectors, wands, and pat downs, the system can intelligently distinguish between threats and everyday items like a cellphone, coins or keys. 


A quick, unobtrusive workflow with no stopping required, as individuals are not required to empty their pockets or place their bags in another area for inspection. Visitors and employees can walk naturally side-by-side or in groups through multi-lane entrances. People can walk individually or in groups without any pause, based on the site’s pre-defined procedures. 


Helping security teams to see, understand, and act on potential threats with more speed and accuracy than ever before, CWD provides a simple, targeted solution. See in real-time where the potential threat is on a person’s body or in their bag reducing the amount of physical contact.


CWD is easy to set up and move and can be used both indoors and outdoors. This flexibility enables the system to be used at different entrances and for special events. Choose from five different sensitivity settings to optimize for different threat levels.


Focus of Attention Alarms Triggers an alarm to be sent directly to ACC for notification to Security Operators.
Appearance Search Quickly identify where a specific person is, helping to improve incident response time.
Facial Recognition Offering greater context to make better informed decisions.
Radio Alert Receive an alert via text and text-to-voice to all radios with the alarm name.
Built-in Avigilon Modular Camera Featuring two 3 MP Micro Bullet imager modules installed on the front and back, operators can see what’s happening at the tower in high-resolution.
