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?

How do I give access to the guys that blow my lines out when I'm not there. Is there a way for them to open each zone without me giving them access to my wifi?

Hi

My watering unit is programmed to water my lawn as necessary under the programs algorithm. However, I have numerous days when the watering is done twice— for exam0e it will run all the zones and immediately run the same zones again.  Anyone know how to fix that?

It has rained for past 2 days and it still says moisture in grass is 50-60%. I don’t have sensors but my understanding is it supposed to change due to weather forecast! It doesn’t so not very smart!

Default Smart Zone settings

Ken Laberteaux
Updated at 2021-09-17 00:51:11 UTC 

Each Smart Zone can be set to a preset, e.g. Frequent, Deep, Boost, EPA, etc.  If you click Customized, you can choose the Min and Max Soil Moisture, and the Flow Rate (inches/hour).  Presumably, there is a default value of these three choices for each of the presets.

How can I find out what the presets are for these three values?  e.g. for the EPA preset, what is the Min, Max, and Flow Rate?  Same question for all of the Smart Zone presets.

Thanks!

Ken

Can't get our Netro to reset

Neil Hobbs
Updated at 2021-09-13 20:54:12 UTC 

We recently had chipmunks chew through  the fiberoptic connection for our computer hookup, not before we were advised to install a new Bell router with a different ID and password. But I can't seem to get the Netro system to recognize this new router and its ID, and it has gone offline. Several attempts to get it to go online failed.

The control panel has a slowly flashing white light indicating that it is in a holding mode, I understand.

Can you help me through a re-connection please? The system has been a life-saver to date....

No data registers as zero

Dave C
Updated at 2021-09-10 22:06:38 UTC 

If I leave my sensor for a while it stops recording new data. The days where there is no data is recorded as a zero. This is obviously not correct.  Any plans on updating this?

Where are the moisture sensors on the whisperer?  On one of mine, the ground stake broke and I was thinking of replacing it with a stardard metal stake. Will this work or is the moisture sensor built into the ground stake? Thanks!

Program Not Running

Wally Carnes
Updated at 2021-09-09 02:37:52 UTC 
I have programmed the 8 zones in my Sprite water controller to run 20 minutes at each station. However, it keeps watering based on some manual settings as noted in the red circles below that I have changed over and over to coincide with the program. It still just resets to 1 minute on several stations. What do I need to do to fix this?

How to remove a "device" without sensors?

carloswhisperer
Updated at 2021-09-07 22:45:21 UTC 

Hello,


I bought 2 whisperers and 1 controller.

I set up 1 whisperer as a sensor before trying out the controller because it arrived first.


Then when I got the controller a few days later I "deleted" the sensor and factory-reseted it so I could add it to my controller.

Now I have an empty "Plant Sensor" section in the app (and in the webapp) and I can't delete it


How do I remove the empty section?

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
