Techniques are described for providing access to and use of laundry machines that are managed and controlled in a laundry service. A transceiver of a mobile device may receive a beacon signal emitted from a laundry machine, the beacon signal identifying the laundry machine. Based on a received strength of the beacon signal the mobile device may determine that it is within a threshold distance of the laundry machine, and the mobile device may communicate a request for use of the laundry machine during a predetermined period of time (e.g., one or more cycles). In some cases, the mobile device may present a user interface that enables a user to request use of laundry machine(s), access information describing a status of laundry in laundry machine(s), request additional service(s), and so forth.
