Calibrating sprinkler output

SonDeMar
Updated at 2023-06-13 15:16:54 UTC 

Hi,

Firstly, I have a Sprite and love it! Easy to install, easy to set up and I'm really impressed with it.

I have a smart water meter so I know exactly how much water each zone uses and I can see that the Netro Sprite's estimate of water used during irrigation is about 75% of the actual usage as reported by my water meter.  This means that I am probably over watering.


Is there an easy way in the app to calibrate the expected flow rate (litres/minute) of a zone's sprinklers such that the smart algorithms deliver closer to the amount of water they think is needed?  Or put it another way, instead of calculating it needs to run a zone for say 10 minutes, they would just run for 7.5 minutes.

Why does my app say the watering didn’t happen?

I have a sprit 6 I just hydro seeded so I have to keep the ground damp. I’m at work away from the house and the app says it didn’t watered in my last 2 programs. I tried to do a manual run and it wouldn’t work. Do I have to be home for it to work?

Installation 3 Wisperer and a Pixie in my garden

Updated at 2023-06-12 12:25:08 UTC 
Good morning,

I have three Wisperers and a Pixie. I can't install my three Wisperers in the same area as my Pixie. I managed to install Wisperer with my Pixie but the other two. How do I install all Wisperer with my Pixie?

If the Pixie is installed in a different area than the Wisperers, does it all work together to optimize my garden watering?

Scheduling ( Two Smart watering levels; Smart disabled)

Netro Support
Updated at 2023-06-09 06:07:25 UTC 

There are 2 different levels of Netro’s smart watering you can choose (For Netro watering controller, please go to Settings->Zones->Smart Zone; for Netro Pixie timer, please go to Settings->Garden->Smart Zone)


 1. Smart watering: Level advanced

This is the default setting of Netro watering controller's smart watering. In this level, your zones will be watered automatically by Netro with smart schedules.

Netro will do everything for you, you do not need to set up the program/schedule.

Netro will skip smart watering and programs when there is large amount of rain(>0.2inch/ 5.08 mm) or watering regulations and manual restrictions.

You can inspect the Smart schedules in the calendar view. They are with the blue water-drop icons.

 

 

2.Smart watering: Level basic

This is the default setting of Netro Pixie timer's smart watering. In this level, no smart schedule will be generated. You will need to add programs manually (go to Settings->Programs to add programs) and Netro will skip programs when there is large amount of rain(>0.2inch/ 5.08 mm) or watering regulations.

 If you do not want smart zone schedule to override your own programmed schedule, you can set up the Smart Zone level from Advanced to Basic, which only skip rainning days for your programmed schedule.

Please note when smart zone is enabled, your local regulations will automatic override your own program if there is any conflict. So when you set up your own program watering time, please do not conflict with your local Regulations if there is any. To check up regulations, please go to Settings->Regulations.

 

 

3.Smart-zone feature disabled

If you want to create your own programs and turn off smart zone feature and rain delay feature, go to Settings->Zones->Smart Zone (Settings->Garden->Smart Zone for Pixie Timer) and toggle the enable button. When the smart zone is disabled, the system will strictly follow the user program to water the zones. There is no intelligence here. Netro will not skip your schedules when there is rain. Regulation feature will not be in effect as well.

Hello all,


While installing the app, we couldn't choose our location (Curacao) so we filled in Miami, FL. Is there a possibility to change country after all? I can find where to change it in settings but it's not allowing me. Can someone help me out?


Many thanks.

Pros and cons Spark 8 and Pixie

Adil Ridvan
Updated at 2023-06-08 04:44:28 UTC 

Just wanted to provide some feedback. I had B-hyve XR Smart Indoor/Outdoor Sprinkler Timer for 2 years. I noted that it does not water on a schedule sometimes. Either because the internet was down, and it did not reconnect or something else. The contractor who replaced it told me that there is probably an internal battery, and it should have been replaced. Too late.

I Googled the best irrigation timer and found that Orbit B-hyve is the best, followed by Netro. Never heard of it. I chose it because it retains programs in case of Wi-Fi outage. I bought Spark 8 zones and installed it today (my contractor did). Also 2 Pixies.

Pros:

Clean modern packaging, clear web interface, app has installation instructions and troubleshooting tips.

Cons:

Why white cover? I could not see indicators with daylight. How to pair? Did some of your staff try to install it in bright daylight outdoors?

Does it have an internal battery which eventually needs to be replaced? How is the memory retained? I believe this was a problem with B-hyve..

What about Pixie? Is rechargeable battery forever?

Web interface still needs improvement: for example – my order is in a different place than my account, Pixie should state that there is no backup program, other logical flaws.

Created a program on Spark, but when tried to edit time it did not allow, stating that the same program already exists.

Backup should automatically copy the program with the option to edit. Why should it be entered as a separate program if this is a backup in case of Wi-Fi outage?

The outdoor cover can have a transparent wall to see indicators.

Thank you.

Adil

Hi,

I have 9 zones but 2 of them are not popping up for watering. I can see water is coming out from the ground but not through sprinklers. I have unplugged Netro device and plugged it back but still those 2 zones are not working.


Any help will be appreciated.
