Smart scheduling problem with sensor watering adjustment configuration

Alfonso Olias Sanz
Updated at 2020-07-28 05:32:10 UTC 

I have an issue/conflict  with the watering adjustments for the sensors and the Smart Zone Sheduling

I have seen something weird. 



  • I Have set up the Watering Adjustment for sensors the following I describe o be sure about the problem
  • Moisture to Skip watering 50%
  • Moisture to Add watering 30%
  • Duration 5 minutes (only) -- it is a check
  • The Smart Zones are st up the following
  • Smart Zone - enabled
  • Mode - regular


The watering run today only 5 minutes, when the smart  schedule  defined by the system was above that. As you can see, tomorrow watering says different time runs per zone, but it will run a maximum of 5 minutes. This means that the sensor configuration overrides the Smart Zone. And it should not.

As far as I understand the Watering adjustemt is to add EXTRA watering when needed based on the moisture level. Attached picture


Prior to this setup I had the Duration for Watering Adjustment for 15  and 10 minutes, and you can see in the past days runs, that always run for 15 -10 minutes depending the zone/sensor. - Attached picture

In previous weeks, it was working fine and adding extra watering when need it to keep the moisture levels.

Any idea?


I DID THE CHANGES PROPOSED BY NETRO  and it is not working

Take a look the screen shots



Zones 3,4,5 it is below the 30% trigger

Centralina offline

Updated at 2020-07-21 10:08:27 UTC 

Buongiorno a tutti, 

Qualcuno può aiutarmi a capire se la centralina anche se offline e quindi non comandabile a distanza continuerà a irrigare quanto già pianificato automaticamente?? 

Purtroppo non posso andare prima di qualche giorno e ho paura che si secchi tutto... 

grazie mille 

Saluti

ifttt or .ics support

Michael Landesman
Updated at 2020-07-20 19:01:42 UTC 
I see that there is some ifttt integration but is it limited to control language and some data logging. What I would like to see is either an .ics subscription calendar or API access to post the next, scheduled water days by zone. It would have to be updated when the app updates and only needs to look out to the next scheduled watering day (start/end time would be helpful too). This would allow me to see when I need to move yard furniture, etc. 

Please add to suggestion/enhancement list.


Thank you.

Whisperer reset WIFI does not work

ozieaev
Updated at 2020-07-19 14:38:29 UTC 

Got 2 Whisperer sensors recently. They came up not new (see some scratches on them and signs of use). As a part of install had to reset WIFI settings in order to connect to my WIFI. Pressing power shows red led. Issue is - pressing power 6 times (should switch to WIFI setup mode), does not work either. Still RED light.

Does anyone knows how to fix this?

Thanks.

Notifications

Addiel Isaac Moldes
Updated at 2020-07-19 11:43:54 UTC 
It would be great if you add an option for notifications once irrigation starts/finishes.Sometimes we need to start it manually and need to wait until one zone is completed to start the next one. A notification in the phone would avoid opening the application all the time to see if the current zone is completed.

I'm not understanding how "estimated frequency and duration" works...

Izio Sem
Updated at 2020-07-18 07:24:18 UTC 

Ciao.

Just installed Netro Sprite.

I enjoyed to set up the zones with advanced Smart watering, but I'm not confident with what is reported in "estimated frequency and duration". The frequency showed in the setting page seems too long (e.g. every 6 days)... but, if I see what is scheduled in the calendar it seems much closer to my expectation (e.g. every 2 days).   How daoes it work??


Thanks

Maurizio

Netro Sprite dead after 27 months (3 months post-warranty)

Doug Burkott
Updated at 2020-07-17 11:26:34 UTC 

Has anyone had an issue with their Sprite being inoperable shortly after the warranty ended?  I tested the power prongs with a voltmeter and the controller is getting electricity, but no lights are on.   It's 105 deg in Austin and no rain in sight.  I'm going out of town for 5 days, so I'm in trouble.  I'm going to have to go to Home Depot to get something off the shelf installed today before my trip.


Anyone with the same problem?  Has anyone been successful with a claim outside of the warranty period?


Update:  The Sprite went offline at the same time the LED light stopped working.  The watering schedule resumed two days later and the LED was still off.  Meaning - Sprite works fine, LED doesn't work.  Netro told me to send the unit in over the winter and they will repair the LED.  Awesome - thanks Netro!


All the best,

-Doug

Does Netro whisperer underestimate moisture?

Rick Agrawal
Updated at 2020-07-16 19:12:17 UTC 
I added a whisperer to one of our zones. Recently the moisture content was between 25-30%. We are having a hot summer with many days with 110 degrees. I believed it and watered for good 15-20 minutes. It turned out despite all those water the soil moisture went up to 45-50%. I went and checked again, the soil looks pretty good and appeared moist. 

Just curious if the whisperer tends to underestimate moisture?

This is needed in the app. The scheduling is harder then it needs to be.
