Updated at 2019-08-22 05:51:16 UTC 

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?

Internet connection problems

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?

My 2nd watering cycle on even numbered days is during the highest heat of the day and it’s burning my shrubs in zone 4.  Why not once a day in evening hours for good soaking?

Would it be possible to publish your API? I (and I'm guessing many others) would like to be able to integrate Netro into tools like Home Assistant

Zones Shut Off But Show Running in App

Kirk Davis
Updated at 2019-08-16 02:54:33 UTC 

Having a problem since upgrade of the app. Doesn't seem possible unless the main unit updated as well. Valves close within a few minutes of being activated by manual start, or programmed schedule. Have not test with smart watering disabled, but it happens on manual starts, so not sure that is even a variable. The Zone still shows as actively watering in the application. If you submit a stop  action by pressing the red square,then restart, via the sideways triangle, the zone will come back on again. However, it shortly shuts back off, while still showing the zone as being actively watered. This is happening across all four of my zones. Curiously, if you unplug the controller after the valve shuts off, but the app still shows it watering, wait a bit, and then plugit back int-the zone comes backon shortly after reboot.

Zones run at the same time

Rich Christenson
Updated at 2019-08-15 11:05:09 UTC 

When I started running a scheduled daily program in conjunction with smart watering selected, for some reason zones will run at the same time.

Am I doing something wrong?  I have a one minute delay in my zones and when I didn’t have the program running the zones would run independently.


When I open the app while the two zones are running, it only displays one zone running.  I’m super confused.

One day restriction

Lou Infeld

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.

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

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!

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?

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
