A social alarm system provides 24 h facilities for alarm triggering, identification, signal transmission,

alarm reception, 2-way speech communication, reassurance and assistance for use by persons who

can be considered to be at risk.

This standard describes the service chain functions that are considered to be required to provide safe

and effective application of a social alarm system to support persons who can be considered to be at

risk. The standard specifies minimum requirements for each of these service chain functions.
