Laundrywatch is an online application that allows users to see the availability of laundry equipment in any connected Laundryserv supplied laundry room. It shows whether machines are in use, available or offline. For those washers or dryers that are in use it also shows how long is left on the cycle. This application can be accessed via any computer with Internet access.
You need to have the Silverlight application installed on your computer to see the graphical representation of your laundry room. This is a Microsoft application which is similar to Adobe Flash, and is perfectly safe and free to install.
Simply click on the install Silverlight application icon, and it will load automatically and should take less than a minute to complete. Should you not wish to install Silverlight or be unable to do so, you are still able to see the status of the laundry equipment via the standard view further down the page.
Not every Laundryserv supplied laundry room is connected to the Laundrywatch system. Therefore if your site is not listed in the drop down menus this feature is not available for your site.
Available means the washer or dryer is not currently running a cycle. In Use means the machine is running a cycle and the standard view shows you how long is left of this cycle. Each machine connects to the Laundrywatch application every minute to update the system with its cycle progress. Offline means that the system has detected a fault with the machine, and an engineer has been contacted to facilitate a repair.

Laundryservs washers and dryers contain features that minimise the use of resources such as water and power. However you can also help by reducing the temperature at which you wash, as this reduces water and electricity useage further. Many detergents now only need a wash temperature of 30°C to work effectively, and some work on lower temperatures than that, so try choosing a lower temperature wash combined with such detergents.
Make sure you only use the amount of detergent you actually need, overdosing just adds more contamination to the watercourse and doesn’t get your clothes any cleaner.
When using a tumble dryer, make sure the lint filter is clean before you start the cycle, as this will make the dryer faster and more efficient reducing electricity requirements
