Why Have a Concealed Weapons Detection System?

A concealed weapons detection system can quickly move people through security checkpoints at a seamless pace. Your students and staff will feel at ease knowing you’re well protected.

A concealed weapons detection system can reliably pinpoint and stop threats by doing the work for you. It combines powerful sensor technology with proven artificial intelligence (AI), security ecosystem integrations, and comprehensive venue analytics to ensure safer, more accurate threat detection at an unprecedented speed and volume. The system allows you to see where the potential threat is on a person’s body or in their bag with clear, visual alerts in real-time.
