Xtract One has recently partnered with Sentara Health to heighten security at hospitals in Virginia, US.

The security company will provide its weapon detection solution following the successful deployment of its SmartGateway entry screening technology.

SmartGateway: Xtract One’s flexible solution

Xtract One’s technology detects firearms, knives and other weapons as people enter buildings.

Offering unobtrusive detection, the SmartGateway’s AI sensors scan for prohibited items without requiring individuals to remove personal items.

“Xtract One’s SmartGateway is an ideal solution for organisations like Sentara, whose priority is providing a positive experience and exceptional overall patient care,” commented Peter Evans, CEO, Xtract One.

“Sentara evaluated several solutions on the market and we are very happy to deliver the customisable solution they were seeking. Most compelling was our ability to align our system with their specific needs.

“Our philosophy and every aspect of the business is oriented toward delivering that brand experience for our customers.”

Sherwin Stewart, System Lead for the Xtract One pilot commented: “Our first promise to our patients, visitors and staff is safety.

“We selected Xtract One’s solution because it aligns with our goal to provide a safe and welcoming environment. We appreciate the flexibility of Xtract One’s solution to adapt to our operations rather than the other way around.”
