Rapid Emergency Response System
BluePoint provides a proprietary, patented Rapid Emergency Response System (RERS), along with a wide variety of support services including: security assessments, emergency management plan consultation, video camera integration, controlled access integration, and building security enhancements.
One System. Multiple Integrations.
The Police Alert solution is specifically designed for crisis situations such as active shootings.
The Medical Alert is built for everyday emergencies, to be used alongside the police alert or as an independent solution.
A communication portal that provides emergency responders and building occupants to real time information.
How it Works
Activated by a pull station or mobile pendant that initiates a prerecorded audio message and enables blue strobe lights.
Emergency Response Notification
The central station receives the signal and immediately contacts the proper authorities within the emergency’s jurisdiction.
Automated texts, calls, and emails are initiated immediately following device activation. Notifications can be sent to anyone inside or outside the facility.
Follow Up Notification
A dedicated and secure two-way communication platform allows building occupants to report their status and remain informed as the situation is resolved.
The BluePoint Difference
During a regular client meeting with a local school district, John McNutt and Stephen Nelson discussed with the District Superintendent the idea of a user-friendly, rapid notification system to immediately connect schools with law enforcement and how valuable it could be to saving lives in extreme emergency situations. From this conversation, BluePoint Alert Solutions was born.

How are the Police notified in the event of an activation of a BluePoint Police device?
The primary method for notifying Law Enforcement in the event of a BluePoint Police device activation is through a live operator dispatch call. The BluePoint Central Station operator will immediately initiate the phone call to the predetermined dispatch agency and provide that dispatcher with the building name, address, device name and any other information they currently have about the incident. For dispatch agencies that are equipped for digital signal relay, the relevant information can be sent directly into their CAD system from the BluePoint Central Station without the need for a live operator phone call. Lastly, any Law Enforcement agency that chooses to do so, can receive the automated ‘C2’ text & email notifications directly to dispatchers, leadership, or officers in whatever combination they prefer. BluePoint always recommends consulting with local Law Enforcement to determine how to most efficiently notify first responders within any given jurisdiction.
Will the BluePoint strobes and PA message be activated in the event of a Medical device activation?
No, the BluePoint strobes and PA message will NOT be activated in the event of a Medical device alarm.
Do the BluePoint strobes make a horn or siren sound like most Fire Alarm strobes?
No, the BluePoint strobes do not make any sound and that is an intentional feature so as to not confuse the BluePoint system with the Fire Alarm system. For clients looking for an audible alert to be triggered during a Police device activation, we recommend either integrating with your existing PA system to play a pre-programmed message (notifying occupants to initiate their emergency response plan) or, for clients who do not have or want to tie in to their PA system, BluePoint is now offering a speaker strobe that will have the capability to play that pre-programmed message right from the BluePoint device.
Do BluePoint devices need to be co-located with all of my Fire Alarm devices?
No, not necessarily. BluePoint systems are not currently governed by the same codes as Fire Alarm systems so device placement can be customized to fit each client’s individual needs and budget.
Does the BluePoint system need to be serviced and tested like a Fire Alarm system?
Yes, BluePoint recommends that all systems be inspected and tested (including battery changes for any wireless devices) annually by a BluePoint Licensed Integrator. BluePoint also recommends that clients conduct an internal drill or test of the system at least once a year to make sure that building leadership and staff are fully equipped on how to utilize the system and respond to activations.
Does BluePoint require access to our network at all and if so, will it still operate if my network is down?
Yes, the BluePoint system requires a network connection to establish a link between the system Control Panel and the Central Station receiver. That connection is backed up by a cellular pathway for automatic failover in the event of a network failure or outage.
