With BluePoint, your volunteers, staff, members and visitors have the most simple, intuitive, and responsive means to neutralize a threat. When activated, BluePoint Alert Solutions immediately alerts police, bypassing 911. Police instantly receive critical information which increases their effectiveness and decreases their response time. Swift response time is proven to saves lives.
Strategically located pull stations and wearable mobile devices provide simple alert coverage throughout your facility including parking lots, outdoor play areas, and all campus buildings. Once activated, the Command & Control Incident Management platform provides two-way communication through familiar mobile communication. 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.
“Everybody is vulnerable to active shooters, and if you cut down the response time by even a minute, that’s countless lives that you could be saving.”
