Google Home

I have two controllers: a Sprite with 6 zones and a Pixie faucet controller.  I would like to use Google to start and stop watering on the Pixie faucet controller.  The User Guide FAQ says:


"3. What if I have multiple controllers?

Unfortunately, Google Assistant doesn't support multiple devices. The NetroHome action controls your first Netro controller. If you have multiple Netro irrigation controllers, please try with Google Home."


How do I control the PIxie in the Google Home app?

One zone suddenly stopped working. I can activate the zone by manually turning the solenoid. I have unplugged and restarted Netro. In the app, it shows the zone running but no water is flowing. Any ideas?

Home screen shows next Watering for each zone in non stacked hours

Brian Brun
Updated at 2021-08-03 02:40:17 UTC 

I am confused. I have a program setup for zone 1-5 to start water starting at 9:00am on Tuesdays. I looked at the Home Screen today and it shows the next Watering for each zone to be like: Zone 1=8 Hours, Zone 2=11 Hours, Zone 3=11 Hours, Zone 4=7 Hours, Zone 5=8 Hours. 


It’s 10:30pm on Monday night now. Why are the times shown different? I want Zone 1 to start at 9:00, Zone 2 to start when Zone 1 finishes, Zone 3 when Zone 2 finishes... why are these times all over the map?

Data out of the API

Jens Wymeersch
Updated at 2021-08-01 13:24:46 UTC 

Dear Netro,


Although you have provided a lot of data via the api. And for all of you who wanted to get data out to your smart hub, it's there for the grabs ! 

ONE DOWNSIDE, i would have expected the battery data of the plant sensor to be provided for the start and potentially the state of the sensor. Although that you could potentially use the last update, to deduct this. When can we expect this to get updated ?

Problemas con la conexión Wifi

Paco Gómez
Updated at 2021-08-01 05:26:03 UTC 

Buenos días hace una semana que instalé Netro 12  estaciones

He perdido la señal wifi en tres ocasiones. He observado que para que vuelva a estar en línea debo desconectar de la corriente eléctrica y volver a conectar el programador,. Me gustaría saber si esta es la manera normal de proceder.

Por otro lado también he observado que si esta fuera de Línea, no riega el jardín lo  que  supone  un problema, pues el programador no lo tengo en mi vivienda habitual.

De que manera puedo resolver estos dos problemas.

Un saludo

Netro and Home Assistant

Jens Wymeersch
Updated at 2021-07-28 18:18:16 UTC 

Although that I'm still hoping Netro will start understanding their appliance/app is only a smart part of a smart home ecosystem and start integrating with Home Assistant. Even huge vendors like Tuya, have understood that this is essential for most Home Automation Enthusiast. 

For the time being, some folks have used the API to get some data to home assistant https://community.home-assistant.io/t/netro-integration/51012/13


I believe a lot of us are happy with the appliance, but aren't looking at it often enough. Result in my case at least that my whisperer was out for more than a month. This could have been avoided if we had an integration to Home Assistant who would have alerted me.

So please Netro, do the extra mile !

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.

What’s the best way of correcting for actual rainfall?

Installing New Netro-6

Debby Plenert
Updated at 2021-07-25 14:37:04 UTC 

I removed an older controller and replicated the wiring when installing the new Netro.  Everything appears to be correct?  However, when watering is activated, the valves will fill up and vibrate or what not with water rushing internally.  But the sprinkler heads don’t pop up and no water comes out.  Any help here would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Strange Whisperer Acrtivity

Updated at 2021-07-24 17:00:16 UTC 

Hi,


I have a whisperer that monitors zones 1, 2, and 3.  Zone 1 is the primary zone.  Because whisperer detected a moisture level that was too low it did an additional watering of 10 minutes.  The strange thing about it is that it only watered zone 1 for the additional 10 minutes.  Why didn't it water zone 2 and 3 when they have the exact same conditions and moisture levels.  I had to go in and do a manual run to even out zones 2 and 3 with zone 1.  


Also in the beta software when you try to switch from basic to advance watering or choose a different watering algorithm you get an error message.

For some reason my controller goes offline every once in a while. It messed things up because it shows all of my zones are underwatered when I’m reality they have been watered. Is there a way to switch it from one with network to a different one that is closer. I can’t seem to find how to update the wireless network for the controller
