What is the official distance that we need to keep from a 20 dBm wireless router that has 2x2 MiMo 3 dBi antennas?

The given router is this: https://www.ubnt.com/unifi/unifi-ap-ac-lite/

Ex.: can we be 1 m far to this wireless router, 24h a day (most of the time) for the rest of our life? Or can it cause ANY reproduction/cancer issues?

So far I googled for several hours.. but still cannot decide that is it a good idea or not, to put the wireless router 1 m far for 24h a day.

  • Consider that you have been bombarded by much more powerful radio signals 24/7 since the day you were conceived. Among the sources: radio, television, radar, mobile phones, and interstellar sources. Many of those sources are orders of magnitude more powerful than a wifi router.

According to the FCC depending on the frequency, a few Watts per kg absorbed RF radiation is an appropriate safety limit. Since 20 dBm corresponds to a total emitted power of 0.1 Watt, there is nothing to worry about.

  • hopefully this is the good answer :)
