Sprinkle does not stop, does not start, freezing...

Henry
Updated at 2019-05-06 19:40:59 UTC 

I have received today the netro controller, 12 zones.


I have installed it correctly, 1 common wire and 7 zones.


It has connected to thr wifi easily, no problem. 


I can start any zone from the seven manually, but if I turn off manually, it does not turn it off...


If i start another zone then sometimes it stops the previus zone finally then start the new one..


and sometimes it just does not react anymore.. does not matter what i turn off or turn on manually, it does nothing.... 


but the device receives every command, because everytime when i turn a zone off or on, the led will blink 1-2 but nothing happens.


I checked wire, unwire and rewire again just for sure and tried the another common wire socket... then made factory reset and reconfigured it..


same issue...


it turns off zones compketely only if i unplug it from the socket, then i replug it, then it works until i start 1-2 zones and then again the same issues...


so what to do with it?

I have smart watering enabled with a preference for watering times between 1 and 7.  The schedule shows the system is running from 1 - 10 am and then again starting at 6:00 pm - 9:36.  How do I get this adjusted? My water bill was the highest it has ever been!

Hi,   

Could you please confirm if the Pixie faucet joint is GHT (garden hose thread) or is it NPT (National Pipe Thread)? 

I'm looking for adapters in Australia to use this unit and its unclear what the size/type the faucet is. 

Thanks!

Spanish translation

Juan P
Updated at 2019-08-10 21:48:16 UTC 

Hi

I bought a netro Sprite controller and have been using the app for a couple of weeks now. I find the Spanish translation quite bad. Looks like a direct Google translation. 

I can help you in the translation if you want. Feel free to ask me for help if you want.


I would also love to be able to integrate netro with Google home. Currently I can't find it in my Google home app because of the lack of Spanish translation. I can help you with that if you want.


Apart from the Spanish translation problems, I think you have a great app and devices. Congratulations!

Why does zone 1 only allow 1 minute manual water sequence and all the other zones it’s 5 minutes. I can’t figure out how to change this?

Manual mode fail to shut off

Junglim Huh
Updated at 2019-05-16 02:05:13 UTC 

Today, I went around the house to start the season, checking springklers, and one zone wouldn't stop in manual mode. I tried to be closer to home to get better Wifi signal. It still would not stop even if I turn on/off other zone. Shouldn't  manual stop override any previous malfunctions? I had to shut the main sprinkler valve for now because there was no way to stop the water for one particular zone.

Any fix for this? I am planning on a leave and that was the whole reason I got Netro, but this worries me if water won't shut off while I am away.

Hot weather algorithm

Joshua Berk
Updated at 2019-05-17 16:15:51 UTC 

I live in Arizona and it's not really hot yet but it's starting to get warmer and I noticed my rye grass is starting to die off and everybody else's is very green.  I think it's because netro isn't watering as often as it should be when it gets warmer. I'm aware I can set a manual schedule but that kind of defeats the purpose of why I bought Netro. So what I'm saying is I think an algorithm needs to be adjusted so hot dry climates get a little more watering for winter grass that's still in season before the Bermuda comes in.

Why is one zone being favored when all zones are identical?

Steven V
Updated at 2019-05-18 13:08:55 UTC 
Just installed the system yesterday and I noticed zone 5 (of 5) for some reason is getting special treatment over the rest. All zones are set identically for the same types of grass, soil and sprinkler heads. However looking at the schedule zone 5 seems to be getting more attention than the rest (i.e.: only zone being watered during off days)  what's going on here?

Unexpected smart schedule

Tony D.
Updated at 2019-08-12 09:35:56 UTC 

Hi,

I set up a sprite connected to a whisperer. In the smart scheduling I see that my two zones would be watered in the following way the next day:

- zone 1: 6:00 16 min.

- zone 2: 6:17 15 min.

- zone 1: 6:46 16 min.

- zone 2: 7:02: 15 min.

I have 1 minute delay between each watering.

What I see the next morning is only the first two waterings made but not the second. Specifically:

- zone 1: 6:00 16 min.

- zone 2: 6:17 15 min.

I'm worried that my lawn is missing water since these days we are having the hottest days of summer (41 Celsius).

My whisperer now (11:23 AM august 12th) reads 0 lux, 23 C, 89% topsoil and 72% subsoil for zone 1 and 70% for zone 2. The whisperer is connected both to zone 1 and zone 2 so I don't know why I get different subsoil readings.

Immediately below I see "Moisture" "All day" both for zone 1 and zone 2. Could you please explain this behavior?

It would be nice if you could provide a blog post with all combinations of possibilities and related meanings.

UPDATE

In the web application I have found "User" in the restriction column searching. In the iOS app the only restriction I found to be activated could be the "Moisture to skip watering" in the watering adjustment for the whisperer sensor which is set to 80%.


Thank you in advance,

Tony

Sprite seems to open valve then fails to deliver water to the system

David Claridge
Updated at 2019-05-18 13:21:53 UTC 

I have had my Sprite installed for a couple of weeks and all seemed well, but looking at my garden I realized it was not watering. When I turn it on manually I can hear a short buzz and water entering the valve, but there is no flow. I can open the valve manually and water then flows. I have reverted the valve to the old timer and it then opens the valve, so I don't think the problem lies there. 

I have the black wire on the valve connected to the common terminal, which was how it was set up on the old timer. I cannot figure out what the the problem is. 

I am an international user with a non-Netro PSU, but it seems to as specified: 24VAC 850mA Adapter AC-AC 100V-240V to 24VAC Power Supply Adapter UK PLUG

Can anyone help me overcome this problem with what otherwise seems to be an excellent system?

One day restriction

Lou Infeld
Updated at 2019-08-12 21:49:14 UTC 
My street is being paved one day next week.  I was told not to water my front lawn on that date.  The closest thing that the Netro app can do is restrict watering every day starting on that date.  There doesn’t seem to be a way of not watering on a specific date.

Is there a way to just set a test run of 1 minute per station?

Roianne Cox
Updated at 2019-05-19 13:52:50 UTC 
When trouble shooting it would be nice to have a test run button so you could just run all the stations one minute. You can manually run each station but you have to do it for each station which is a pain. I have someone working on my system and I have to run it for them and stand there to run each station.

Have to reboot Sprite every day.

jpmeyer81
Updated at 2019-05-19 15:04:11 UTC 

My Netro worked perfectly last season.  I left it plugged in through the winter and disabled the zones.  At some point during the winter, the light started blinking, and I didn’t worry about it until last week when I went to reactivate the zones.  The app indicated the sprite was offline, so I rebooted and it came back online with a solid light.  System worked with no issues.

The next day, the light was flashing again and app indicated offline.  This time I pressed the rest button and rejoined the network.  Again, worked for a day.  The next day, same problem - this time I rebooted my router.  Again it worked, but offline again the next day.  Don’t understand why it keeps losing connection this year.
