    Colours on the map

      The colours on the map correspond to specific parking regulations. We have created an uniform code in all cities so that it is easily understandable and the different regulations are quickly recognisable.

      • Red zones are paid parking zones. These are usually the most expensive and/or those where parking is allowed for the shortest period of time.
      • Orange zones are paid parking zones. Generally cheaper and/or less restrictive in terms of time than red zones.
      • Yellow zones are cheaper and/or less restrictive parking zones than red and orange zones.
      • Blue zones are free but time-limited parking zones for which the use of the parking disc is mandatory.
      • Green zones are free parking zones without time limit.

      Be aware that the details of each zone such as prices, hours and days of parking change from city to city or from commune to commune. Read the information in the bottom menu and the details in the detailed parking menu. More information on how to consult the detailed parking menu.

      If no color is shown on the interactive parking map, it means the area has not yet been mapped in Seety. If this happens in one of the cities already mapped by Seety, send us an email to laura@seety.co.

      Thanks to Seety's colour coding, it's easy to identify free or cheapest zones. To find free zones, look for green and/or blue zones(limited in time) near your destination. Yellow zones are the cheapest paid zones. Avoid the red zones as these are the most expensive paid zones.

    Help the community - Reports & Risks of controls

      To report a parking agent on the street, press the «+ Button» and then press «Parking officer spotted». Check that the date, time and address are correct and share the information. The community will be alerted.

      To enter the data of a ticket, press the «+ Button» and then on «Ticket received». Check that the date, time and address are correct and confirm your report.

      It is equally important to report when you have not received a fine if you have left your car without paying your parking fee in order to allow Seety to calculate the times and days for which the risk of control is lowest.

      Reporting that you did’t get controlled if you left your car without paying your parking fee is just as important to the Seety community as it helps us calculate when the risk of getting checked is low on a certain street and its surroundings.

      Reporting an error on the map greatly helps the Seety community. Your reports help us to have a continuously updated interactive parking map.

      To report an error on the map, press the «+ Button» and then on «Error on map». Fill in the form as completely as possible so that we can quickly check the validity of the information and make the change on the map.

      To consult the control risks for a certain street, position yourself on the street in question and consult the detailed parking menu. More information about how to consult the detailed parking menu.

      In the detailed menu you will find a tab «Inspection risk» under which a graph appears with the times during which the control risk is low, medium or high.

      The risk of controls for a street and its surroundings is calculated from the reports made by the Seety community. The community can report the presence of a parking officer, share details of a fine received or not received per street for a certain day and time. On the basis of its data, we calculate the risk of being checked in a street and its surroundings.

      To consult the alerts that have been made for a certain street, position yourself on the street in question and consult the detailed parking menu. More information on how to consult the detailed parking menu.

      Under the tab «Inspection risk»you will find«# of reports». If you click on it, a detailed window of the latest alerts will appear.

    Protection

      When you activate the protection, the system knows that it must send you a notification when a parking officer has been spotted near your vehicle.

      This can save you a parking fine if you leave your vehicle without paying your parking fees.

      Warning, alerts are only generated by the community. The more important and active the community is, the more chance you have to receive a notification. Seety is not responsible for fines received if you do not pay your parking fees.

      To activate the protection, go to the bottom menu of the application. Press the «Enable protection» button. Check that the street is the one you are parked on and tap «Enable».

      Your car will appear on the map where you are parked.

      To disable the protection, go to the bottom menu of the application. Press the «Disable protection» button. Confirm by clicking on «Leave parking».

    Position of the car

      If you want to save the location of your car to find it more easily later, press on the «Enable protection» button. Check that the street is the one you are parked on and press «Enable».

      Your car will appear on the map where you are parked. To find it easily tap the car icon in the top right corner of your screen.

      Be careful, by saving your car's location, you will also receive checkpoint alerts when a parking attendant is reported by a community member near your car.

      • You have connection problems.
      • The app has a problem, contact us by sending a message to laura@seety.co if this is the case. However, check that it is not one of the problems mentioned above.
