What does that mean in practice?

If you take the example of water leaks. For the individual, this can affect air quality and eventually lead to a number of health related problems. For the landlord, if such issues are not treated early then it will start to damage the fabric of the building. If information is collected on an ongoing basis and passed remotely and seamlessly into ARMED then flags can be raised allowing reactive rather than proactive housing management.
