Netro is watering at 25F because it is misinterpreted weather

I had to cancel watering because it’s 25F this morning. It’s because the weather is misinterpreted. The forecast today is 58/34, but that means it will be 34 for tonight’s low. Last night’s low was 25 and the Netro should look at that number for watering this morning.

NetroWeather not updating, other weather apps only update if they are resubmitted every couple of days, is it possible to add other weather providers to the app?

Yellow Triangle on every other run

Updated at 2021-12-01 13:44:22 UTC 

I have 2 Pixies and both are on smart schedule. However, one has been acting up and showing a yellow triangle without any explanation for every other run.


Example:


Pixie 1 - Nov 24 - Good run

Pixie 2 - Nov 24 - Good run


Pixie 1 - Nov 26 - BAD run - yellow triangle

Pixie 2 - Nov 26 - Good run


Pixie 1 - Nov 28 - Good run

Pixie 2 - Nov 28 - Good run


Pixie 1 - Nov 30 - BAD run - yellow triangle

Pixie 2 - Nov 30 - Good run


Why would this happen????  I have cameras and PIXIE 1 DID NOT RUN on 26th and 28th.


Thanks.

Repeated watering a few minutes apart

Hi. I have attached pictures of my screen that show that the app is repeating waterings on the same day,etc.  This doesn’t seem correct (they are drip irrigation zones)?


Did I set it up incorrectly?


Thanks

Issue with Smart Watering

Davide
Updated at 2021-10-04 19:13:44 UTC 

Hi Community!

I've got 4 zones linked to same program all with Smart Watering activated. I noticed that on the schedule proposed there's one zone that's watered several times per day while others not. Settings are the same for all zones so I dunno what's wrong. Is there a way to set the Smart Watering of that zone like the others?


Thanks a lot in advance for your help!

Doubts about installation and required devices

Juan Pascual
Updated at 2021-09-22 17:57:24 UTC 
I would like to know how to manage the following garden.
I currently have 5 areas of lawn and other plants, with 3 Hunter PGP sprinklers for each area. Of these 5 zones, there are two with a lot of shade, and the rest are sunny (central Spain).
On the other hand, I have another zone with 6 diffusers, and a last one with a drip system for the Leylandy hedge.
I am interested in acquiring a Spark programmer but... how many Whisperer would I need?

How does Spark differentiate between the different zones and how does it combine the amount of humidity needed? The type of grass I have is made up of Raygrass, Fescue, Poa, and Agrostis. I could send you a plan of my system for your advice.


the outer lines indicate the individual irrigation fields.
AREAS A1 - A2 -A3 - A4 -B1 and B4 are the shadiest areas.
These areas are shadier due to the height of the hedge.

For orientation, a straight line between points 13 and 8 marks the North-South line, where 13 is South and 8 is North.
Neither the diffuser area nor the drip line of the hedge is represented here.
The water inlet is located in the legend E1, between sprinklers 12 and 13.


Thank you very much.

Lots of questions!

Hi Netro Community, I just bought a house with a huge yard and the Netro system. Spent a lot of time identifying zones and getting the watering right by nozzle type, square footage, etc. Some areas still seem too dry and others’ too wet. So…


How can I be sure I have selected the right soil type? 


How can I verify I have the right grade of slope selected by zone? 


Other ways I can help Netro identify dry spots?

Smart Controller Not Very Smart

Hi,


I’m not sure that I can trust this Spark Controller anymore.  Woke up to notifications of zones being watered when controller is programmed to water on MWF.  Moisture levels in all zones was okay on all zones and smart level is only set to basic.  According to the notifications the controller was watering on 9/8/21 instead of 9/7/21.  It’s like the calendar on Netro’s server is set to the wrong date.  Very disappointing, and I don’t know if I can trust the controller going forward. the controlle

Irrigation Pattern - new feature.

Alfonso Olias Sanz
Updated at 2021-08-31 09:42:59 UTC 

Hi

I have checked that the irrigation modes

DEEP

EPA

REGULAR

FREQUENT


Irrigate the same amount of water, the only difference is the frequency in days and time per irrigation.

The only mode that saves water is ECO 

Or does a DEEP / EPA modes, will help me to save water compared to REGULAR or FREQUENT during a period of time ( I also have installed the whisperer) . Is the whisperer able to detect deep water?


I would like to stress the grass up to a point irrigation is needed, so swapping between DEEP and ECO to save water. But I cannot create a calendar where I could set up the watering mode per month for instance.

Any advice?

Rain sensor

How do I incorporate a rain sensor (or other device) and make it override expected rainfall?

I am supposed to be in a rainy period but have missed the heavy stuff completely so that my pixie just remains off after reading the forecasts.

Still need to water off the netro books

wwhitfill
Updated at 2021-07-18 13:52:07 UTC 
I had a malfunction in one of my valves and one zone watered all night, without metro knowing. That zone is well watered but metro thinks it needs watered. If I turn it off the program it just makes matters worse. How do I get the hydration level back up in one zone without turning off water to my sprinkler system? I still need to water other zones. I need to adjust the hydration level of one zone. Let me know. Thanks

Weather Conditions setting

Steven Then
Updated at 2021-07-15 14:04:18 UTC 

It seems if there is any chance of rain, the smart watering always skips the day. Even if I increase the threshold to the highest setting for both forecast or expectation it will skip the day. Can someone help me properly configure the smart watering feature?  This Saturday, it's expected to rain less than my threshold in the evening, I would like the smart watering to water in the morning. 


Thanks
