Pros and cons Spark 8 and Pixie

Adil Ridvan
Updated at 2023-06-08 04:44:28 UTC 

Just wanted to provide some feedback. I had B-hyve XR Smart Indoor/Outdoor Sprinkler Timer for 2 years. I noted that it does not water on a schedule sometimes. Either because the internet was down, and it did not reconnect or something else. The contractor who replaced it told me that there is probably an internal battery, and it should have been replaced. Too late.

I Googled the best irrigation timer and found that Orbit B-hyve is the best, followed by Netro. Never heard of it. I chose it because it retains programs in case of Wi-Fi outage. I bought Spark 8 zones and installed it today (my contractor did). Also 2 Pixies.

Pros:

Clean modern packaging, clear web interface, app has installation instructions and troubleshooting tips.

Cons:

Why white cover? I could not see indicators with daylight. How to pair? Did some of your staff try to install it in bright daylight outdoors?

Does it have an internal battery which eventually needs to be replaced? How is the memory retained? I believe this was a problem with B-hyve..

What about Pixie? Is rechargeable battery forever?

Web interface still needs improvement: for example – my order is in a different place than my account, Pixie should state that there is no backup program, other logical flaws.

Created a program on Spark, but when tried to edit time it did not allow, stating that the same program already exists.

Backup should automatically copy the program with the option to edit. Why should it be entered as a separate program if this is a backup in case of Wi-Fi outage?

The outdoor cover can have a transparent wall to see indicators.

Thank you.

Change Country

Hello all,


While installing the app, we couldn't choose our location (Curacao) so we filled in Miami, FL. Is there a possibility to change country after all? I can find where to change it in settings but it's not allowing me. Can someone help me out?


Many thanks.

Please renew the certificate so our app works again..  

Maybe you need to set a reminder around this as this seems to be a reoccurring problem.

Installation 3 Wisperer and a Pixie in my garden

Apollon16
Updated at 2023-06-12 12:25:08 UTC 
Good morning,

I have three Wisperers and a Pixie. I can't install my three Wisperers in the same area as my Pixie. I managed to install Wisperer with my Pixie but the other two. How do I install all Wisperer with my Pixie?

If the Pixie is installed in a different area than the Wisperers, does it all work together to optimize my garden watering?

I have a sprit 6 I just hydro seeded so I have to keep the ground damp. I’m at work away from the house and the app says it didn’t watered in my last 2 programs. I tried to do a manual run and it wouldn’t work. Do I have to be home for it to work?

Calibrating sprinkler output

SonDeMar
Updated at 2023-06-13 15:16:54 UTC 

Hi,

Firstly, I have a Sprite and love it! Easy to install, easy to set up and I'm really impressed with it.

I have a smart water meter so I know exactly how much water each zone uses and I can see that the Netro Sprite's estimate of water used during irrigation is about 75% of the actual usage as reported by my water meter.  This means that I am probably over watering.


Is there an easy way in the app to calibrate the expected flow rate (litres/minute) of a zone's sprinklers such that the smart algorithms deliver closer to the amount of water they think is needed?  Or put it another way, instead of calculating it needs to run a zone for say 10 minutes, they would just run for 7.5 minutes.

Pixie-Z1-H - How to install?

kernel
Updated at 2023-06-14 15:54:05 UTC 
  • I have received a new Pixie-Z1 and a hub
  • Downloaded the Netro iOS App from the UK app store
  • In the App I added the hub connecting through Bluetooth and configuring WiFi access for the hub
  • Hub shows constant green light

Now how can I add the Pixie-Z1 hose faucet to my account? The App only shows the option for the Pixie-1, which doesn't work because the Pixie-Z1 uses the Zigbee connection, not WiFi.

Netro App

I bought a new phone today and am unable to water my lawn and vegetable garden because the app asks for a password, which I have forgotten.

I have tried number of times to get it to open up with a new password and the app still does not go back to normal.


Please call me on my cell phone.  209-482-0316


I would like to be able to get this to work because it is getting hot in California.  It is to be in the 90's tomorrow.

Rainy day shut off

Wondering how to use the online weather forecast and be able to use that information to turn off the next day scheduled watering. 

I'm checking the rainy days manual and turn on/off the system which is cumbersome! Appreciate letting me know.
