Police Alert System
BluePoint’s solution is unique because of the true life safety approach. The technical requirements that make the fire alarm the most reliable system in a building 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.

Strobe Lights & Audio Messaging

Additional System Integrations
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, forming the creation of a highly useful solution based on actual needs.
Designed for protecting people at the front desk, the receptionist can remain engaged in conversation while discreetly alerting others in the facility – and police if necessary – to an escalating situation.
Sound Detection Integration
Both gunshot and breaking glass sound detection systems can be seamlessly integrated with the BluePoint Solution to provide even faster response times. For additional questions please email us.
If desired, internal first responders are notified first. If the situation is beyond their capabilities, they initiate second-stage notification to external first responders and personnel.
Access Control/Fire Door Activation
Integration is easily accomplished through our control panel. Lock, unlock, and close doors at your discretion and direction of local law enforcement.
“The BluePoint system allows us to have immediate access to emergency officials so they can respond faster and with the information they need for more informed decision-making.”

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.
