Police Alert

The familiar, intuitive, simple solution for Rapid Emergency Response Systems

BluePoint Alert Solutions is “extremely beneficial—you can’t have anything better and it will cut our response time in half.”

– Brian Bastian, Police Officer, Illinois




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 our solution—only when to use it and what to do after activation. Our solution is enhanced with wearable mobile pendants in addition to standard pull stations. This provides even greater ability for people moving about the building to immediately and securely activate the system if they see a problem.



Building-Wide Notification

As a true life safety solution, our system notifies all occupants of a building—long-term employees and visitors alike—to take precautions through strobe lights and audio messaging that reduces panic and confusion. Our messaging includes 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.




Swift, Informed Decisions

We met with first 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 first responders and building occupants to make more informed decisions faster. Access to this information is unhindered during a crisis, and protected during normal times. Click here to learn more.




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 for Incident Command Structure and Multi-Hazard Communications.

The BluePoint Alert 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.

ADDITIONAL Features

Silent Alert
Designed for protecting people at the front desk, the receptionist can remain engaged in conversation with a visitor while discreetly alerting others in the facility – and police if necessary – to an escalating situation. With 2 clicks of the mouse, a notification is sent through our Command & Control system to designated groups of people with exact location information of where to assist. A great addition to our Police and Medical Alert systems!

Two-Stage Response
If desired, internal first responders are notified first. If the situation is beyond their capabilities, they initiate second-stage notification to external first responders.

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.

Access Control / Fire Door Activation
Integration with access control and fire door activation systems is easily accomplished through our control panel. Lock, unlock, and close doors automatically once the BluePoint system is activated.
 




  • The faster first responders are on site, the faster the emergency situation ends.
  • The faster people take precautions, the faster they are safe.
  • Panicked people don't think clearly or react rationally.

How it Works

Once activated with a BluePoint Alert Solutions device:

  • Police are contacted in less time than a 911 call.
  • Building occupants are alerted  through both visual and audio methods.
  • Text, e-mail, and voice alerts are automatically sent to designated groups.
  • The Command Group receives a text or e-mail with secure links to critical information. See the Command & Control page for more information. 
  • Other groups of people receive lower levels of information at the client's discretion.
