Parking state detection


Parking states can basically be divided into two main categories: Parked (Standstill), Unparked (Moving, Stop). This type of rule allows users to get notifications when a parking state changes from one to another. Some organizations want to control the driving time of their vehicles. For example, vehicles shouldn’t be used off-duty. So this rule also helps to stay aware of the beginning/end of a trip. It can send notifications to the user interface, your email address or phone number about the parking states of selected objects. Please consider reviewing the Parking detection article before setting up the rule.

By setting up this rule, users can stay informed about the beginning and end of trips, as well as changes in the parking status of their vehicles. Notifications can be delivered to the user interface, email address, or phone number, providing real-time updates on the parking states of the selected objects.

Overall, the Parking State rule, in conjunction with Parking Detection, enables users to stay informed about the usage of their vehicles, particularly outside of designated hours or when vehicles should not be parked or started. This enhances control, security, and efficiency in fleet management operations.


The configurations for a parking detection rule are made exclusively within the Parking detection portlet. For detailed information on these configurations, it is recommended consulting the Parking detection article.

Bind zone to rule:

Enables geofence rule binding.


Fill out the section if the rule needs to work only inside/outside of the selected geofences.

Map button:

Emergency notification:

is used for important events. A message on the screen and the sound signal can only be disabled by clicking on the notification. Please note, some browsers can block notification sound until user activity is recorded on the page.

Push notifications:

Receive push notifications on the mobile app and web interface.

Add geofence name to the notification:

Adds names of the specified geofences to the notification text. This option is available only when the "Inside" geofence binding radio button is selected on the "Settings" tab.

SMS notifications:

List of recipients for SMS notifications when the event occurs.

Email notifications:

List of recipients for email notifications when the event occurs.


Set a schedule for when the rule will run. If your schedule indicates that the event should not run some day or time period, it will not appear as a notification in the user interface, and notifications via SMS or email will not be sent. Additionally, you can choose a default template for quick scheduling.

The platform specifics:

  • The "Parking detection" alert has a 10-second reset timer, meaning the alert event will not occur more often than once every 10 seconds. If this type of event occurs in time the rule has been waiting for the reset, this event will be omitted by the platform, including the reports.
  • This rule is a generic type and is not specific to any particular hardware, which means it can be applied to multiple trackers simultaneously. This allows for the selection of several trackers within a single rule.

Event reports

To view the dates when the events were received, you can build the "Report on all events" report.
