According to the FBI, nearly 50% of all armed intruder events occur in commercial spaces. Many of these are the result of disgruntled employees, layoffs, employee stress, and other factors that are most often unknown to the employer. Whether your business is a public facility like a mall or a movie theatre or a private office, there is a need to protect your employees, customers and visitors. How can your business stand out and provide an answer to this statistic? Introducing Bluepoint. With a simple, intuitive and budget-friendly solution Bluepoint will multiply the effectiveness of current security systems and take a step even further. Take a look at the numbers below to see what we have already accomplished.
KEEP YOUR Commercial
There are obviously many systems that could be employed to provide protection—cameras, access control, etc.—but the most effective systems 1) reduce police response time, 2) alert all building occupants, and 3) equip emergency responders and building leaders to make more informed decisions faster.
The barrier to a faster police and building occupant response is that panicked people do not function well. All of the tasks that need to get done for the best response possible take far too long for a panicked person to do. BluePoint automates that response with a simple, intuitive user interface and a powerful situational awareness and communication platform that integrates with existing security systems to multiply their effectiveness. Greatly reduce the human element from your emergency response protocol.
Command & Control
Swift, Informed Decisions:
We met with emergency responders throughout the country and asked: What tools would be most beneficial to improving response? We learned what was truly valuable and what wasn’t. Combined with the commitment to keeping our solution simple and intuitive, we provide critical information delivered quickly, securely, and intuitively. Our Command & Control communication portal equips both emergency responders and building occupants to make more informed decisions faster. Access to this information is unhindered during a crisis, and protected during normal times. Some of the key features include:
Effective Emergency Communication:
Not only will people receive notification and instruction from the command group, they can also respond to the command group with more information: pictures, their location, injuries, etc. This communication is based in the very familiar and simple text and email mechanisms people use every day, not a special app they are unlikely to find or use effectively in a panic.
Clear Location Awareness / Recognition:
A map of the facility, clearly indicating the location of the activated pull station, advises where in a facility the incident started. This is critical for emergency responders, building leaders, and designated employees. This data intuitively empowers people with actionable information for saving their own life and the lives of those around them.
Security Camera Feeds:
Our solution makes live camera feeds available to first responders and building leaders in a way that is organized and easily understood—crucial for all responders. Instead of using cameras to look at what happened in the past, we make them a critical tool to learn what is happening in the moment.
Location & Reunification:
People can report their location, and—during the crisis only—have their location tracked. This allows emergency responders to see where people are, where they are moving to, and where they are moving from. It also provides a means for people to respond with their status (“I’m okay” or “Need help”) so emergency responders can get a quicker handle on the severity of the situation. Lastly, it enables building leaders to more quickly account for their people during the reunification process.
