I have had a lot of trouble with losing netro's connection with internet. My old router failed so I replaced it with an expensive mesh wifi system which provides wonderful service to everything I have tried to connect except my Netro! I have now discovered that it will not work with anything but 2.4 GHz wifi. The new wifi does not provide 2.4 connection. Is there a workaround for this? Or do I have to throw out my new state-of-the-art $400 5 GHz wifi to get my somewhat obsolete $100 Netro to work?

Using as a on/off switch

Have netro installed with sprinkler system. It works well. I have an above ground pool that I want install a solar heater to. I'd like to use the Netro to open a valve at a specific time and close it later, either at a time or interval. The longest program run is 60 minutes. I'd like to see something around 8 hours. Also, to be able to turn on/off via the app like the sprinklers would be perfect. Is this possible? I have looked but haven't found a way yet.

How the smart watering is scheduled?

Maybe I missed something....


Just installed the controller and app. With “Smart” options Enabled with all zones, some zones will repeat themselves up to 4 times in one day, a few days in a week, some zone seems never scheduled at all(?). Is this how I should  use it or I have to use a fixed program only? How the auto scheduling is calculated?

Hello there,

I'm new to netro and I tried to setup smart watering but the data I provided it will do it just once a week. 

How is it possible? Is it safe to water just once a week?

My device appears to be connected and working, but I noticed the light on the unit is blinking constantly.  Is it supposed to be doing that?

Weather Provider

Can you please explain to me the big difference of the next watering days using different weather providers? As you can see in my print screens the data of temperature and humidity are nearly the same. With one provider next watering cycle will be in 2 days and with another in 11 days.

Thank you for your comments 

Regards 

Martin

How does a whisper sensor work with a drip system?

L F
Updated at 2019-08-25 23:46:33 UTC 
I have a couple whisper sensors monitoring my lawn and drip system.   I understand how they can monitor the soil in my lawn but I’m wonder how the whisper works on my drip system as it doesn’t see the moisture that’s added to the soil(the emitter isolates the water to the plant) or the rate the plants use it like the one in the lawn does.  I’m assuming it’s just estimating like the Netro would on it’s own.  Is there much value to using a whisper on a drip zone?

Not watering on any zone

A Miller
Updated at 2019-06-02 18:39:10 UTC 
The sprite worked perfect for about 3 weeks. Went out of town for a week, during that time it snowed for the entire duration of my trip. The unit worked as it should and didnt water. However when it should have picked up its schedule after weather cleared it did not. It will not run its zone at all. I have checked the resistance on all zones solenoids and they are fine at 28 ohm. I reconnected my old hunter system and all zones worked properly with that controller. So whats the next step?

Wont recognize network which has an apostrophe in the name?

My customer has a network name that contains an apostrophe. Larry Arch's Wifi. He uses an AirPort Extreme router and two AirPort Extreme range extenders. They have many household devices connected to this network and all of their service contractors use it too. Is there a workaround? They will not be able to use Netro products if there isn't.

Amazon and Google connection in Gernany

Piti Germany
Updated at 2019-06-03 22:49:27 UTC 

Hi.

I bought Netro Sprite because of the possibility to connect itto with Amazon and/or Google Home.


So, in Germany the Alexa skill is not in the Amazon store.... 


And Google Assistent can't find Netro Sprite.

In the list of home automation devices Netro ist also not included. 

The description to connect Google and Netro can't help me.


Ist it possible that you list the Amazon skill in Germany too?


And can you tell me, step by step, how I could connect Netro Sprite with my Google home?


Many thanks in advance

Peter

watering sequence

Gérard GALBOIS
Updated at 2019-08-26 18:23:46 UTC 

It is unfortunatly not possible to change  in which ordre the watering will act.

for exemple I need to water zone 5 after zone 7 because zone 7 is at a higher level than the electro valve and remaining water pressure, after watering is stopped,  is to strong and prevents the valve to close . by watering supplemantary  zone 5 which is lower the pressure diminishes ans the valve of zone 7 closes..

Military time

Can the time be changed on the schedule to AM/PM and not 24/hr clock? 

AccuWeather.com if selected waters in the AM. If i switch it to the other 2 it changes the schedule to PM watering. What is the reasoning behind this? I would prefer AM watering but would like to use a different weather provider.

No Next Scheduled run date?

I have my device set up as "lawn" under my devices.  I have a program set up which has a run time for each of the zones, supposedly scheduled to start June 7.  Why is there no scheduled run appearing under my schedule or anything under my "next run" field under my listed device?
