How do I give access to the guys that blow my lines out when I'm not there. Is there a way for them to open each zone without me giving them access to my wifi?

It has rained for past 2 days and it still says moisture in grass is 50-60%. I don’t have sensors but my understanding is it supposed to change due to weather forecast! It doesn’t so not very smart!

I installed my Whisperer and it seemed to work but after a couple of days when I checked the APP it just shows 0 at all three datafields. I see values in the overview (weeks, month etc.) though. What can I do to correct this?

Lots of questions!

Hi Netro Community, I just bought a house with a huge yard and the Netro system. Spent a lot of time identifying zones and getting the watering right by nozzle type, square footage, etc. Some areas still seem too dry and others’ too wet. So…


How can I be sure I have selected the right soil type? 


How can I verify I have the right grade of slope selected by zone? 


Other ways I can help Netro identify dry spots?

Doubts about installation and required devices

Juan Pascual
Updated at 2021-09-22 17:57:24 UTC 
I would like to know how to manage the following garden.
I currently have 5 areas of lawn and other plants, with 3 Hunter PGP sprinklers for each area. Of these 5 zones, there are two with a lot of shade, and the rest are sunny (central Spain).
On the other hand, I have another zone with 6 diffusers, and a last one with a drip system for the Leylandy hedge.
I am interested in acquiring a Spark programmer but... how many Whisperer would I need?

How does Spark differentiate between the different zones and how does it combine the amount of humidity needed? The type of grass I have is made up of Raygrass, Fescue, Poa, and Agrostis. I could send you a plan of my system for your advice.


the outer lines indicate the individual irrigation fields.
AREAS A1 - A2 -A3 - A4 -B1 and B4 are the shadiest areas.
These areas are shadier due to the height of the hedge.

For orientation, a straight line between points 13 and 8 marks the North-South line, where 13 is South and 8 is North.
Neither the diffuser area nor the drip line of the hedge is represented here.
The water inlet is located in the legend E1, between sprinklers 12 and 13.


Thank you very much.

New Whisper not reporting

Derrick
Updated at 2019-09-04 17:11:14 UTC 
I recently ordered a second whisper and installed it the same way as the first one I received (which is still working fine)  It connects just fine and I can even change the color of the LED for a while.  But it reported only once to the app and that was it.  I have tried reconnecting it to WiFi, I even deleted it in the app and reinstalled it with no success.  After the initial connection it seems to just stop working.

Disconnecting Constantly

Kate Whelan
Updated at 2019-06-09 18:05:15 UTC 

My Netro Smart Sprinkler Controller, WiFi, Weather aware, Remote access, 6 Zone, Compatible with Alexa disconnects CONSTANTLY from the app/network and I’m about to put back on our old school controller. Today it disconnected IN THE MIDDLE of watering the lawn while I was feeding/putting my baby down for a nap and it ended up watering for 28 mins, flooding my backyard. Ugh. 


Any tips on fixing this? I do not have intermittent internet or power issues. Is there a hardware update? Aside from this, I LOVE it - but this is kind of a deal killer for me. I plan to call customer service on Monday, but thought I’d check here for tips to see if I can fix it sooner.

Watering adjustment at specific time

Arthur
Updated at 2020-07-30 22:20:53 UTC 

hi i have watering adjustment enabled based on water level on the whisperer. But is there a way to designate time for watering adjustment? Basically it comes on randomly when it senses that more moisture is needed but can be in the middle of the day when we're using the lawn. Regular watering times are already set to only do mornings and evenings...


Thanks,


Arthur

Water turned off

Ken Laberteaux
Updated at 2020-07-31 01:08:39 UTC 

I had to turn off my water valve to my sprinkler system for a week (ending in a few days) and forgot to disable smart watering on my netro.  Netro thinks it did a complete watering last Saturday, and adjusted estimated soil moisture accordingly.  Netro isn't planning another watering for another 9-10 days.  However no watering last Saturday occurred.  


How best should I handle this?  Is there a way to delete past watering, which will lower soil estimated moisture, triggering a sooner watering than currently scheduled?  Or should I just do a manual long watering as soon as I can?
