The money will be put into new digital systems to help landlords stay on top of their responsibilities, while improving the lives of renters across the borough. Councillor Gabriel Rozenberg, Chairman of the Barnet Council Housing Committee, said: “This is a chance for Barnet to pioneer cutting edge technology that will help landlords stay compliant with the law.

Since it joined forces with PA, the global innovation and transformation consultancy, the council has been able to supply Argenti care technology to more than 3,700 vulnerable adults in the borough. The technology – sometimes called Telecare – is the use of sensors, mobile devices, alarms on a person or in their home to keep someone safe and independent for longer. The sensors can detect falls, gas leaks, flooding from overrunning baths and sinks, reminders to take medication, and alerts if a front door has been left open.
