Hospitals have a great deal of security invested in their main facility through security staff, cameras, access control, etc. BluePoint multiplies the effectiveness of these systems by adding a simple, intuitive system to initiate communication and alerting as well as disseminate critical information.
Remote facilities — medical office buildings, urgent care facilities, clinics, etc. — have far less security infrastructure and staff. How can we cost effectively protect our patients and staff there? BluePoint is the answer. Our solution reduces response time of security, police and staff while increasing critical communication and dissemination of information.
Strategically located pull stations and strobes provide simple alert coverage throughout your facility. Once activated, the Command & Control Incident Management platform provides two-way communication through familiar mobile communication. Your leadership and security teams can be informed by an alert from any BluePoint protected building in your organization. Informed decisions save lives and protect your people.
True Life Safety
BluePoint’s solution is unique in the industry because we have taken a true life safety approach. We have implemented the technical requirements that make the fire alarm the most reliable system installed in buildings – it has to be functional when you need it. Additionally, our communications platform complies with FEMA’s recommendation of best practices for Incident Command Structure and Multi-Hazard Communications.
Simple, Intuitive Activation
The BluePoint solution has been built for use in crisis situations. With adrenaline flowing and panic setting in, the user interface has to be familiar, simple, and intuitive so that people will actually use it. No one has to be trained on how to activate BluePoint — only when to use it and what to do after activation. The solution is enhanced with wearable mobile pendants in addition to standard pull stations. This provides an even greater ability for people moving about the building to immediately and securely activate the system if they see a problem.
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.
