Irritating - Dark Sky is junk.

Kirk Davis
Updated at 2019-04-20 12:21:46 UTC 

Why can't I see the assumption Netro is making on the amount of rain that fell the day before? I paid Dark Sky for the time machine feature, but it's never accurate Yesterday  it rained here over an inch (rain gauge and $250 weather station agreed)  Dark Sky time machine (no, not Hot Tub time machine) reported  25 inch. At the very least I should be able to go into the app and put the actual rain that fell for the day before. Is there a way to do it, and if not, will you please add it? I would get a Whisperer, but the feedback has been rather poor on here. 


The community is nice, but how am I supposed to see answers? It shows "Answers 2", for example, but you click in it, and noting happens. Irritating 


Thanks,

Weather Company API- Revenue stream for Netro

Kirk Davis
Updated at 2019-04-20 12:58:20 UTC 
Topic: General
It is my understanding that you could restore our ability to pull data into netro from our individual weather stations. This would require paying for the API, which you could mark up 20% and offer a paid option to netro clients. $3.99 a year, for example, would be totally worth it to get accurate information to my sprinkler controller. As I have outlined in a previous post, dark sky has proven to be wildly inaccurate. It's Miss estimates rainfall by at least 50%, on average, and is within three degrees plus or minus on high temperature only about 50% of the time.

I have a company doing service on my sprinkler system, and would like to have them able to turn zones on/off to verify coverage and do repairs. Does anyone know how can that be done without me giving them my phone?

Install

Updated at 2019-08-05 15:17:08 UTC 
Post install and after first unsuccessful run, it says it watered but it definitely did not, I found an extra wire that I had plugged into ‘C’ next to the ‘M’, that I had left unplugged in my last successful Netro setup. I have now unplugged it and did another unsuccessful run. My question is, when making a wiring tweak like that do I need to press the ‘RST’ before proceeding with a run?

changing watering zone times?

I have one zone showing a watering time of 1 minute.  Is there a way to change this.  In the settings it says it waters every 2.65 days for 13.5 minutes.  It may take 30 seconds or more for the zone to come on.  Any ideas

Connecting Hunter PVG-Valves

John Mayer
Updated at 2019-05-01 15:57:37 UTC 

Hello, 


I am trying to connect my Hunter PVG 101 GB valves to my new Metro Sprite. 


I haven't installed a watering System before so I am quite a newbie here. 

I have managed to set my Sprite up. But my valves aren't working. 

I have double checked my wires. No issue there. As I am living in Germany I have bought my own power supply. It's this one: INNOVATE LED Trafo ECO 24 Volt/DC, 0-50W - LED Treiber - Transformator - Netzteil - Driver (24V - 50W) https://www.amazon.de/dp/B01AALEYR8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_LgCYCb2PT86Y9


Are there any recommendations, what I could do wrong?


Thanks so much,

On the graph, is the rainfall actual rainfall that has occurred or is that rainfall that is predicted based on weather map?

Sprite doesn't open valve

Tony D.
Updated at 2019-08-06 20:38:31 UTC 

I'm doing a first installation with an 100-HV-FF 24V ACRain Bird valve.I connected the wires to the C and 1 connector to serve zone 1. I populated the zone in the app. Because I want to test the system before I disassemble my previous I did not install the valve between the pipes. I click the "play" triangle in app home screen but I get no reaction from the valve. The solenoid is completely closed. I am using the 24V AC/AC adapter bought on your website.

Does the valve need water flowing through to work properly?


Thank you

Smart Watering advanced watering times

itsthesun
Updated at 2019-08-06 20:42:23 UTC 

Hey I'm all setup and running with my sprite and things are great!


My issue is that the advanced smart waters is choosing times that are early in the morning when I shower and its reducing the water pressure for me and I'm sure the heads have less pressure coming out since I am using water too. 


Is there anyway without going to basic scheduling and making my own programs that I can edit the times in the morning it waters?

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!
