Instructions about Replacing Old Controller

Replacing old system


This page lists some instructions about replacing old controllers with Netro smart watering controller. 


Example 1:



I check the pictures.

Here is how you connect to your sprite:

OLD                 Sprite

24VAC             24VAC (order does not matter)

COM                any C slot

1                     1

2                     2

3                     3

4                     4

You probably do not need to connect other wires.


Example 2:


You do not have a master valve so you just leave the M slot open.

The sensor wires are not needed either in the Sprite because it gets the weather data from WiFi network.


Example 3:


If you are using the Netro power adapter, the two thick beige wires should not be used because they are the 24 VAC power wires from your old power adapter.

However, you probably can use these two beige wires on Sprite. Just hookup them on the 2 24V AC slots in Sprite on the right side. I would suggest using a voltage meter to check the voltage on them though if you go this way.


Example 4:

1. The VC wire goes to any one of the C slots in Sprite

2. The 1-8 wires go to 1-8 slots in Sprite which is straightforward

3. Use the Netro power adaptor to connect the 24VAC in Sprite

Other wires are not needed.

Example 5:


The 8 zone wires will go to the 1-8 slots in Sprite.

The C wire will go to any of the C slots in Sprite.

You can leave the M slot in Sprite on unconnected.

Wrong translation - Italian app

Good morning. 

I like the app, also in Italian is well done and intuitive to understand and to program. It’s full of interesting info and give plenty of advice. You need to modify few words that have probably been translated thru a web based translator. The days of the week are:

Monday = Lunedí

Tuesday = Martedí

Wednesday = Mercoledí

Thursday = Giovedí

Friday = Venerdí

Saturday = Sabato

Sinday = Domenica

I own a very small lot and would be interested only in setting up my own programs. How can I override the system's smart watering schedule? I installed a new Netro Sprite today and right off the bat it shows a lot of watering on the first day. Thank you.

Part 2 of my observation of the app content:

Months translation:


The month of May is Maggio 

You translated in Potrebbe which is the translation of the verb Can. 

Best regards.

Update frequency of watering schedule

charu
Updated at 2019-03-21 16:27:21 UTC 
How often is the smart watering schedule updated? This morning it was raining quite a bit, but so far my watering schedule indicates a watering session for tomorrow. Not only does this waste water, but it violates one of my restrictions, namely, no watering the day after a rain.

windy conditions

Magnus Swenson
Updated at 2019-03-27 20:05:53 UTC 

The setting for windy conditions is great.

However the zones that includes drip irrigation doesn’t get impacted by winds (since they’re often under dirt/mulch etc) usually rotors and nozzles would be impacted . Is there a way not to include in ground drip irrigation on windy conditions?

Smart Watering Basic with a schedule watering adjustment

Barry Perfect
Updated at 2019-04-13 17:00:37 UTC 

If I have a zone set to Smart Watering - Basic with a schedule to come on for 30 minutes, will the smart watering adjust the duration of the watering based on the weather (say 10 minutes when it’s cool, the full 30 minutes when it is hot), or just turn it off/on based on the 5mm expected rain threshold?

Low pressure in zones

Hussein Diab
Updated at 2019-07-29 16:36:31 UTC 
Hello, I've noticed that 2 out of my 6 zones suffer from low to no water pressure. I tried removing the nozzles to test but the water kept barely coming out. I know the solinoids are working because the water is coming from the zones, but how can I understand why there is super low pressure?

Suggestion: Sunrise smart watering

Mark S
Updated at 2019-04-15 13:39:43 UTC 
I think Rachio adjusts the watering schedule with sunrise to have all zones completed as the sun is coming up. Is this something you intend to add? I think this will come in handy with the heat of summer.
