60 minute limit

I would really like to see the app be able to water longer than 60 minute increments. I know there is a way around it to create multiple programs that run consecutively but I Would love to be able to turn on a zone from the app when it’s not scheduled and water for 8 plus hours (drip on big trees). I Have been a Netro user for years and love everything about it except this one part.

Sensor inputs

Can you tell me if the Netmo system can be linked to security systems that can then turn the water off automatically if a movement is detected so that they don’t get a soaking?

I’m thinking apple Home in particular.

Can you tell me if your database of watering restrictions covers the UK?

If it doesn’t, can you tell me when they are likely to be added?

Cheers,

Mancata irrigazione

Topic: General
Buongiorno ogni volta che salta la corrente la centralina crede di funzionare ma gli irrigatori non partono. Per far sì che tutto riprenda a funzionare bisogna ogni volta resettare la centralina ma se qualcuno è via per molto tempo potrebbe costituire un grosso problema.

Recharging whisperer in spring after winter shutdown

Ken Wiens
Updated at 2021-05-28 19:17:48 UTC 

I buy a new whisperer every year (on my 4th year now). I also try to charge the old ones each year. I set them in the direct sun. At night I put them under a direct indoor light source. This year they have been charging for a little over 4 weeks now. This gives them enough power to run for 7-10 seconds. As the watering season where I live is only about 4.5 months, this means that every whisperer only lasts me 4.5 months. It's a pretty expensive solution at this rate. 

Is my experience common? Has anyone gotten a whisperer to work after being stored over the winter (and I do charge then fully before turning them off for the winter)?  I assume the internal rechargeable batteries just aren't that good. Has any one had any experience changing the batteries?

How do I do long uninterrupted watering?

akadap
Updated at 2021-05-28 02:59:54 UTC 
The Sprite is breaking the watering of my trees into a whole bunch of short bits of watering. Given the way my soil sucks down water, I'd prefer to water my trees for 4 contiguous hours of watering every two weeks, but there does not seem to be a way do specify this directly.

How do I access my sprinkler controller with a web browser?

akadap
Updated at 2021-05-27 22:32:59 UTC 

I just bought a Netro Sprite based on the description and reviews on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XCRZWMN/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

One of the main selling points for me was one of the bullet points in the description:

"Lifetime Cloud Service - Connects to WiFi(2.4G), monitors and controls your sprinkler system anywhere from iOS(8.3+), Android(5.0+) devices and Web browsers"

I tried looking up its IP address on my router, but that fails to connect. How does one access this controller using a "web browser"?

This feature is very important to me.

Buggy system or bad communication

banaszar
Updated at 2021-05-25 17:23:58 UTC 

I am using a netro spark for a 12 zone setup. Outside of the rough UI app experience, I am continuously seeing odd behavior in my physical irrigation system. I recently had new hydroseed installed and have the netro controller setup to run at 4 different times during the day. Typically 75% of the time things work as expected, then the other 25% of the time, my app displays "loading" for a full minute before the zone is turned on and other times the zone will turn on, then immediately turn off, or only run for less then half of the scheduled time. 

This is becoming quite frustrating as I cant trust this system for what its intended to do.

Outside of this issue, I have already been able to replicate two different scenarios that I would consider to be bugs. 

Really hoping someone can assist with this because I'm tempted to switch controllers for a more confident system.


Let me add, I just turned a single zone on manually at the controller with the same results. Set controller to run a zone for 4 minutes, zone turned on, then turned off after 1minute.


Wifi at my controller is 10.2 Mbps download and 13.1Mbps upload which is more then sufficient for MQTT as well as on a channel that has very minimal collision.

Connect one whisperer to two pixies

jmkluft
Updated at 2021-05-24 14:14:03 UTC 

Hi, 

For the moment, I have one whisperer connected to one pixie, and everything is working fine.

I have a question though, if I would add another pixie to control another watering zone, can I connect the same whisperer to that second pixie?

In other words, can I connect one whisperer to two pixies?

Thx,

JM
