Industrial facility managers work hard to ensure a safe working environment for their employees, but many rely on average safety standards set by the industry. Most industrial buildings have security systems implemented in their facilities through security staff, cameras, access control, etc.
However, with a simple, intuitive, and budget-friendly solution, Bluepoint will multiply the effectiveness of current security systems and make your organization stand out as one with a unique and superior level of safety. Medical pull stations give your people the ability to quickly notify medical emergency responders in the event of an injury.
Keep your industrial spaces safe
Although safety of industrial workers has improved tremendously over time, there remains many opportunities for injuries. Providing a medical Rapid Emergency Response System (RERS) in the areas of worker concentration provides the best possible means to notify emergency responders of an incident with exact location information and a means of emergency communication as the situation unfolds.
Spaces such as HR offices, front office lobby, “C”-suite, or high occupancy areas, most often benefit from a police/security RERS. With the potential threat of disgruntled employees, layoffs, employee stress, and other factors that are most often unknown to the employer, protecting the employees in these vulnerable areas is a responsible approach.
True Life Safety
BluePoint’s solution is unique because of the true life-safety approach. The technical requirements that make the fire alarm the most reliable system installed in buildings have been replicated in our emergency response solutions, making our communications platform compliant with FEMA’s recommendation for Incident Command Structure and Multi-Hazard Communications.
Simple, Intuitive Activation
The BluePoint solution is specifically designed for crisis situations such as school shootings. Its user interface is designed to be familiar, simple, and intuitive, enabling effective usage even in high-stress scenarios. Training is not required for activating the solution; users only need to know when and what to do after activation.
To further enhance the system’s effectiveness, wearable mobile pendants are included alongside standard pull stations. These pendants enable individuals moving around the building to activate the system quickly and securely if they encounter an active threat.
As a true life safety solution, BluePoint notifies all occupants of a building—employees and visitors alike—to take precautions through strobe lights and audio messaging that reduces panic and confusion. The messaging can include a reminder of the response protocol (lockdown, run-hide-fight, etc.) as well as assurance that police are on their way. Strobe lights reinforce the messaging, especially in high ambient noise areas and outside buildings, warning people not to enter.
“First responders received immediate notification and were providing medical care to the fallen employees within one minute of the alert—a dramatic improvement in response time.”

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
