Hi... I've set my Netro Sprite's watering "time frame" (under Settings) to be between 7 and 11pm. It still however schedules its watering start time at 6pm.  How can I fix this?


Thanks

Google Home Commands not Working

Updated at 2019-06-23 13:34:06 UTC 
For some reason, when I give Google the command to "talk to netro sprite to water zone for 5 minutes" or "ask netro sprite to water zone for 5 minutes" Netro comes back and says "I have stopped watering.  What else can I do for you?"  It won't do anything else but turn off the zones.  Why is this?

watering usage doesn't match

Sangjin Lee
Updated at 2019-06-21 22:49:22 UTC 
Topic: General

Here is something I cannot reconcile. I am dealing with a pretty big water usage reported by the utility. It says in the month of May I used 530 GPD (gallons per day). I seem to be watering every 3 days (set by Netro).


Compared to winter months when I rarely watered the lawn due to the rainy season, it is a jump of ~ 270 GPD.


When I check the Netro app, it reports I used ~ 3.5 CCF for the month of May. 1 CCF = 748 gallons, and that translates to roughly 87 gallons per day. This is less than 1/3 of what the utility is telling me. How can this discrepancy be explained? Any ideas/tips for finding why I seem to be using this much water? Thanks in advance!

I have set start/end water time in preference, but it is watering outside the assigned time. Anyone else experience that, and how can I fix this?

Amount of Rainfall keeps changing

Netro app keeps changing the amount of rainfall that we have had. Day before yesterday it rained heavily. The very next day Netro app showed that it rained 1 inch. Today it’s showing that on that same day it rained only 0.33 inch. Any idea why it keeps fluctuating for something that has already happened in the past?

Zero lux on whisperer during day time

Hey- just added the whisperer sensors to the system - one sensor by the bamboo always shows zero lux sunlight, it is mostly in shade, but definitely gets light, is it strange that sensor shows zero lux?

Difficulty connecting to Google WiFi

I have a Sprite that refuses to connect to my Google WiFi.  Even with the router in the garage with it.


It will connect to a mobile hotspot on a cell phone.  Is there a known issue for Google WiFi?  I have tried all of the troubleshooting steps without any luck.

Configuration for Netro Sprite suggestions requests

Tony D.
Updated at 2019-06-14 22:30:14 UTC 

I am interested in buying the Netro Sprite sprinkler. I read several reviews and they are all pretty good. I noticed that many state that the sprite is not able to water two zones at the same time. Is this something limited by project and wanted or do you think it could be upgraded with a software upgrade?

I wanted to ask you some questions about my garden layout. I attach a planimetry for convenience.

The garden consists of two pieces surrounded by railings with a central railing too. The one on the left side is about 70cm lower then the one on the right side.

The two big areas are covered with lawn. At the left side border there are 8 laurus nobilis plants (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurus_nobilis) while at the right side border there are 8 Trachelospermum jasminoides plants (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trachelospermum_jasminoides).

Based on your experience how many zones would you create. At first I thought to go with three zones: one for both lawn plots, one for the laurus and another for the Trachelospermum. My doubt is I need to split the two lawn plots into two separate zones. How would the inability to operate different zones at the same time affect the watering and would the Sprite handle different times automatically or would I need to intervene manually?

My last question is about the Whisperer sensor, how many of them would you place in the garden?

Waiting forward to your suggestions,

Tony

Zones Scheduled; Did Not Run

Matt O.
Updated at 2019-06-14 14:30:18 UTC 

Good Day,

Really enjoying the product and app so far. 

 Another question: I noticed my Smart Water schedule includes a couple zones that did not end up running at the scheduled time (see attached screenshot). Is this due to the dynamic changes in the algorithm? The home page did show, however, that these zones ran but they actually did not. 

Thanks.

It's been nearly two months since you said adjusting actual rainfall would be added to the app. No useful updates at all. We deserve to know if you are spending your time on other products, and are not planning to fix this app. Transparency would help keep me from pulling my hair out.

Rain Delay

Peter Parker
Updated at 2019-06-14 06:50:18 UTC 

Any chance you folks will add a rain delay feature in the app? It’s hard enough for Netro to predict the weather, and it certainly can’t adjust to every missed forecast. But it’s quite easy for me to hit 24 HR DELAY and make it right.


Thoughts?
