The present document specifies technical characteristics and methods of measurements for social alarm systems operating on a range of frequencies that may be shared with other equipment types. Social alarms are defined in Commission Decision 2013/752/EU [i.3] as:
"Social alarm devices" are radio communications systems that allow reliable communication for a person in distress in a confined area to initiate a call for assistance. Typical uses of social alarm are to assist elderly or disabled people.
These radio equipment types are capable of operating, for transmission or reception, in all or part of the frequency bands given in table 1.
NOTE 1: The probability of interference may be different when operating in bands shared with other short range devices compared to bands from which other short range devices are excluded.
NOTE 2: Social alarms operating in a designated band are covered in ETSI EN 300 220-3-1 [i.5].
The present document covers the essential requirements of article 3.2 of Directive 2014/53/EU [i.2] under the conditions identified in annex A.
