Does wireless radiation pose a risk?

The exposure to radiation from AVM devices with wireless capabilities is considerably lower than the limits laid down by the German government in the "Ordinance on Electromagnetic Fields" for the frequency range around 2.4 GHz (microwave range) or 5 GHz.
Thus, the wireless transmitter power of AVM devices operating in the 2.4 GHz frequency range does not exceed 100 mW / 20 dBm. When they operate in the 5 GHz frequency range, it does not exceed 200 mW / 23 dBm if channels 36 to 64 (5.15 - 5.35 GHz) are used, and it does not exceed 0.5 W / 27 dBm when channels 100 to 140 (5.47 - 5.725 GHz) are used.

According to current scientific knowledge (see Federal Communications Commission), there is no evidence that radiation from wireless devices poses health risks.
