The installation e.g. for invalids etc., has an enclosure (1) containing a microprocessor (MP) which has a number of button switches (B) connected to it. These are located at strategic places in an occupied dwelling. The microprocessor is connected to a memory (M) and pulse generator (GI) and uses a clock unit (H) as a time base. A cassette recorder (MC) contains a message which is retrieved by the microprocessor when one of the buttons is pressed. The message is routed via a connector assembly (5) to a telephone line (T) to which a telephone handset (4) is connected. The installation is powered from the mains or batteries (P) and contains a loudspeaker (7) and microphone (8) connected by a switch (9) to allow a telephone conversation to be applied directly to the line in place of the handset. In another arrangement activation of the alarm call may be by means of a portable transmitter.
