Topic: General
Is there or could there be a feature to turn on a watering schedule that accommodates for new plants or seedlings that require a bit more water at first and then can be put into a normal schedule?

Notifications

Cam
Updated at 2020-04-29 19:55:03 UTC 

It is obvious there is big demand for notifications.  Like a notification when the system begins watering.  Anyone know why Netro refuses to add notifications? I asked for this a year and half ago and was told by Netro they did not want to "spam" its customers.  What, spam?  Makes no sense.  The notifications could easily be turned on/off, right?


I love the Netro system, but notifications seems like a no-brainer.  Again, anyone know why this is not being implemented?  Or has it been implemented and i missed it?  Thank you.

Fertilization program

Andrea Merito
Updated at 2020-04-27 14:30:47 UTC 

Good morning,

I ask you for a suggestion in your app.  in the program menu, in addition to displaying the manual and automatic programming, can you enter a command regarding fertilization?  I use fertilizers from the Bottos company, where each product has its weight and timing.  Maybe create a partnership with the big fertilizer companies.


Best.

Good morning after the update of 2 days ago, when I start the irrigation manually, in the home section of the application, it no longer displays the photo of the area.  I checked in the zone settings and the photos are present.


Waiting for a solution

Thanks

Buongiorno, ho installato correttamente la centralina Netro.

Ora ho installato due sensori whisperer, li ho collegati alla centralina e vedo i dati correttamente ma non riesco a collegarli alle due zone che ho creato.

Leggono solo i dati ma restano indipendenti dalle zone irrigate.

Ho provato a resettarli e reinstallarli ma non mi viene mai chiesto in che zona abbinarli.

Nella home Page della centralina Netro, entrando nella cartella sensori non vengono visti.


Grazie.

Plant Sensor

I turned my irrigation system on this year, and the controller is working great. However, the plant Sensor hasn't checked in since last year; so I went to reconnect it to my wifi. When I press the button 6 times, all I get is a flashing red light.

Power outage detection and more

Gian Piero Pepino
Updated at 2020-04-25 09:23:06 UTC 
Hello,
I’ve just bought my first Sprite and Whisperer and really eager to receive them and start them running in my garden.
In Italy, where I live, we often have this situation: during “off summer season” we live in town, but the garden is located in an holiday site, for instance at the seaside house (this is my case). It may happen that we experiment, sometimes, but unpredictably, a “power outage” accident. 
As far as I know, Netro has implemented a “cloud application”. Is it possible to be promptly advised that a “power outage” has just occurred? That would be quite useful, since if I’m promptly known of the issue, I can immediately take a properly action to recover the outage (with the help of a neighbour for instance). This may also be some kind helpful to support the diagnosis around the cause of the issue. I think that the “use case” might be the following: if Sprite is not set to “off mode” and have “no answer” to the check, send a message “possible power outage on Sprite id XXX”. Desirable channel of communication: email, whatsup, sms, … I’d really appreciate to know what you think about my proposition. I really deem it could be a very appreciated “complementary, but valuable service”.
Second question: is there any update on the list of the Meteo Forecasting Providers thar are supported by Netro? I’m interested particularly in Meteo.it and 3bmeteo.com
Thank you very much for your attention and support

Best sync option?

Updated at 2020-04-22 02:56:17 UTC 

Got a Pixie. Set my sync time to 6 hours for now. Hopefully I won’t have to tinker much.


Is there any compelling reason I should set it to 1 hour or 3 hours if I don’t plan to mess with the settings? Does Netro have a recommendation?

Smart watering at wrong time

Joakim Björn
Updated at 2020-04-21 19:55:37 UTC 

Hello!


In Netro app, Settings=>Preferences=>Scheduling I have told my Netro Sprite to use the time frame 18.00-21.00 (6 PM- 9 PM).

But when I look in Schedule it says it's going to start watering 06.00 (6 AM). Something is wrong here?

How protect Netro Sprite

Stefano Carucci
Updated at 2020-04-21 09:14:57 UTC 
I need to install the Netro Sprite in a tool shed covered by tiles and closed only on three sides that I have in the garden (L 2mt, W 1.5mt, H 1.8mt).

I would like to know if, to protect it from humidity, dust and insects, I can install it in a box like this:


https://www.amazon.com/Fielect-Transparent-Switchboard-Distribution-115x90x50mm/dp/B07ZR2HN5B/ref=sr_1_17?dchild=1&keywords=transparent%2BDistribution%2Bbox&qid=1587458726&rnid=2941120011&s=hi&sr=1-17&th=1


and if this box can decrease the reception of the wifi signal.


Thank you,

Keep Connected option

jbart65
Updated at 2020-04-17 17:38:10 UTC 

Since wifi uses a fair amount of regular power, I assume the Pixie cannot be kept connected to the Internet or remain online for long periods of time. Yet the instructions and website don't seem to offer much guidance, and if so, I have not been able to find it.


So I experimented. I set the Keep Connected option to 9 am to 7:30 pm for Thursday. Seems the battery went dead in a day. 


I gather the Keep Connected option is limited. If so, any guidance would be appreciated. I did find it concerning that neither the Netro app nor the experimental web app showed the rapid deterioration in battery power.


Ideally users would have the option to set multiple blocks for Keep Connected. For example, I would like the Pixie to stay online from 7 am to 8 am and then again from 6 pm to 7 pm. Is that something that's in the works? I know most customers might not need such an option, but for some such as myself it would be useful.


I also imagine there is some kind of obstacle to the device sending out a WAKE UP command when a user wants to connect. Such as feature would obviously be great.


The particulars: 


The Netro app said I had 82% power at the start of Thursday. The app also said I had 82% power as of Friday morning (data appeared frozen in retrospect).

 

On Friday afternoon, the app suddenly told me it was zero power (while the experimental web app told me it was at 84% power and then 9% power on Fri afternoon). The app went from showing itself to be ONLINE, as it should, to NEXT SYNC. No warning or anything or the app showing a gradual depletion of power.

Which Alexa app?

jbart65
Updated at 2020-04-16 20:00:55 UTC 

Just got a Pixie. I downloaded both Netro and Netro Home for Alexa. Both work, but should one be disabled? 


The Netro app seems a bit simpler to use (but still clunky). By contrast, Alexa asks if I want to open the Nextro Home app every time I give a command.


Ideally the commands would be simplified, but at least I can get it to work.
