Laundromats aren’t what they used to be! Modern facilities like Waters Express Laundry Center
in Tampa, FL, have established a new standard of efficiency and comfort in the laundry game.
Waters Express offers ozone-infused wash and dry capabilities in under 60 minutes. You can
pass the hour enjoying their complimentary wifi or large screen TV. Their mammoth machines
can handle nine loads of laundry at one time, keeping your task quick and simple.
Unlike laundromats of the past, Waters Express is bright, clean, and spacious. They offer
coinless operation, friendly attendants, and a variety of convenience services. They have
partnered with fellow Tampa company, Surveillance Technology, Inc. (STI) to install a security
camera package to add safety to their value proposition. STI implemented a surveillance package
centered around a 16 channel H.265 4K DVR with a 16 terabyte hard drive, which gives management
ample days of footage retention.
Thirteen turret style 4K cameras with autofocus and motorized zoom now cover every aisle of
washing machines & dryers, the bathroom hallways, and all entry points from the interior. As a
best practice, STI locates cash register cameras directly overhead, so the camera cannot be beat
by the cashier’s body. Off-center placements allow individuals to block the camera’s view of the
register, which is mitigated by STI’s overhead approach.
Surveillance Technology also installed three exterior cameras with 24/7 color technology to
capture 4K footage in color, even in night vision mode. These cameras provide their own LED
light source, illuminating the front and rear exterior of the property, as well as the sidewalk and
Waters Express has cultivated a helpful and inviting atmosphere to make dreaded tasks of
doing laundry more bearable. A top notch surveillance package gives them and their clients
peace of mind to round out a modern and enjoyable laundry experience.
