    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard presents performance based requirements for personal response systems which may be installed in private dwellings or residential care facilities.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies the minimum performance, design and operation requirements for telecommunications based personal response systems (PRSs). It also provides guidelines for the selection of such systems.A personal response system is a communication system that facilitates the connection of a user requiring assistance to a central monitoring facility (CMF) using a local unit This Standard is not intended to cover intruder alarm systems which are covered by AS 2201 (all Parts) or hard wired patient alarm systems which are covered by AS 3811.
