It depends on the ITU regions.  In ITU Region 1 it is an ISM band
(Industrial, Scientific, Medical) and able to be used for these devices
provided it meets other rules (power levels, etc.)  In most of ITU
Region 2 it falls under LPD433 for license free operation again assuming
other constraints are met and in the US it falls under FCC Part 15 rules
and clarified in OET 63.
