With the Sentry Mobile app, it's much easier to park. It works with parking meters in real time, so you can use your phone to add time to the meter, and the meter will show you how much time you have left. You can also see a picture of the parking meters in the area and find out if there are any open spots. This means you no longer have to pay for parking with change or credit cards.
With Sentry Mobile, you can set up an account and pay for parking at any MPS meter. The app lets you buy things at older parking meters and in parking lots where the city allows it. You can always see how much money is in your account and add more if you need to.
When you pay for parking and pull into your spot, the MPS meter will show how much time you bought, and an icon will show that you used the Sentry Mobile app to pay. This means you won't have to worry about whether your payment went to the right parking place.
The app also tells you when your parking time is almost up and gives you a rundown of all the times you've parked. If you can't remember where you stopped, the "Where's my car?" part of the app will help you quickly find it.
Sentry Mobile also has a program called Concierge Autopay that lets you pay for parking without touching the meter or your phone. Payments will be taken out of your MPS account and put toward your parking time. Unless you turn them off, you will get messages and warnings while you are parking. As long as you don't park for longer than the time limit or during "No Parking" hours, you won't get a ticket.
Sentry Mobile is a great tool that makes parking faster and more convenient. It lets you pay for parking with your phone, see where parking spots are open, and even find your car if you forget where you parked. The Concierge Autopay Program also makes it easy to pay for parking without having to deal with the meter or your phone.
