Is Netro that smart?

Alessandro Alfei
Updated at 2023-03-16 00:53:44 UTC 
why if Netro is so smart after months of learning with the whisperer still uses the "humidity to add watering" data set by me and doesn't create a custom program?  smartzone is in advanced level and regular mode.

Smart zone manual setup

Vieri Verze
Updated at 2023-02-18 08:31:43 UTC 

I do not understand how many millimeters to set. I have microsprinklers of 4lt/h and 2lt/h. I thought to set to 4000ml/h but the max is 100ml/h.


How to calculate? I have a big terrace with 30 plants and various microsprinklers.


Thank you,

Vieri

Reduce watering time in 1 zone

Ale Levi
Updated at 2023-01-22 19:32:59 UTC 
Hi, I'd like to reduce the watering time in 1 zone which gets dumped each time Netro waters. The other zones are ok. Is there a way to do that in the smart mode? Maybe set an offset for that specific zone?

Customized moisture level not triggering watering

Richard
Updated at 2023-01-12 21:29:59 UTC 

I have a Sprite with 3 Whisperers, all in the veggie patch.


I have the zones set to customize with a low of 25% and a high of 45% (I find 30 - 35 % moisture about right)


But the zones just won't get watered!


Zone 1 is down to 6% today and has been dropping steadily for days.

I HAVE to manually water, as the day time temperatures are consistently over 30 degrees (today 33, tomorrow 37).

Otherwise the plants will die.


Given there are only two values to enter (low and high). How do I stop the Netro from skipping days and putting the zones in the "Moisture" category??

At the end of the whisperer's learning time, the times are set automatically in the program or have to be done manually?

Main feeder line shutoff valve control

Richard Miles
Updated at 2022-10-10 02:16:36 UTC 

My main water line to the sprinkler system came loose and flooded my vacation home yard with 250,000 gallons of water before the leak was discovered and repaired.  Does Netro have the ability to control an electric valve on this feeder line such that the main valve will only open when the irrigation system calls for water?

Mulch impact on duration

John Wright
Updated at 2022-09-13 12:58:29 UTC 

My flower gardens have several inches of wood chip mulch covering the soil.  After a season of "Smart Watering" my beds are dry and the perennial plants are stressed.

Does mulch absorb irrigation water intended for the plants?  Is the presence of mulch a factor affecting the duration of an irrigation cycle?

Hello,

I was wondering if it's possible and makes sense to connect more than one rain sensor to the Netro Sprite.

Error in watering ?

Davide M.
Updated at 2022-08-29 11:31:56 UTC 

I do not know if it happened before, I noticed it today with yesterday's irrigations.

The report from the Netro app (iOS) says that 2 of the 5 planned waterings failed (BTW, why , for which technical reason ?)

The report from the web interface says that 3 of the 5 planned waterings failed (BTW , why, same question above)

I set up a IFTTT applet to receive a notification after every successful watering and according to that 5 to 5 waterings were OK.

I do not post screenshots from IFTT as they are 5, but of course they are available for digging if anybody from netro needs them.

Please help me:


  1.  what should I trust ?
  2. based on which  result (app or web) did the scheduler react for today's waterings ? I suppose on web, because I got today exactly the three waterings that "failed" yesterday according to web report.

Thank you.

Need Sprite to water less often

texan4ever521
Updated at 2022-08-24 20:24:11 UTC 

I have a netro sprite.  I live in Dallas.  My lawn as drought tolerant bermuda grass.  The grass can easily get by with 10 minutes of watering once a week.  When I look at the logs I see that the sprite is watering the each zone 5 to 15 minutes a day.  I enabled water regulations which  restricted water to Wednesday and Saturday.  Even with this change, the schedule still says 14 to 18 minutes of watering for each zone on the watering days.  I do not have a whisperer


My settings :

grass type:: warm season grass

soil type: clay

sprinkler type: rotor head

shade: none or some shade

smart zone: enabled (Level=advance, mode=eco)

area = 1000 sq ft (I tried reducing this value but then the estimates under "smart zone" go to zero)

1 or 2 frames

Ken Wiens
Updated at 2022-08-14 20:56:59 UTC 
I always read that it was better to water early in the morning than in the evening. I see Netro gives the option of 2 frames daily though.  I turned on two frames and created a lengthy frame in the morning and evening for watering. Now when Netro schedules my watering it breaks it up between the two zones - even though the morning zone is long enough to hold the entire watering schedule for any partucular day - so presumably Netro thinks it's better to do half the watering in the morning and half in the evening.  My question is "What is the best practice with Netro watering, and why does it choose to water morning and evening rather than just morning? ". I was sort of expecting it would only use the second frame if the first frame wasn't long enough - but this is not the case.

Whisperer should correct sprite inaccuracies

Douglas Ely
Updated at 2022-08-02 10:30:54 UTC 
I have areas of the lawn that are consistently brown during the summer. I bought a whisperer to tell sprite to correct itself but it doesnt seem to do that. If the soil moisture that is estimated by the Netro app is incorrect, why doesnt the whisperer update the algorithm? Example: I have tried to set the soil moisture to 80% low to 100% high.  The grass on the customers property is brown and they are not happy. When I check the app, The whisperer says that the soil moisture is 63% but the app says that the next watering is scheduled for 22 hours? It also needs to be able to keep a greatly increased watering schedule until it corrects the problem. It is getting hard to work with this.

Consistently underwatering

Douglas Ely
Updated at 2022-08-02 10:14:34 UTC 
The app seems to work fine when there is natural rainfall and the lawns look green. When the stress of the summer arrives, the customers ALWAYS complain that there is not enough water on some zones. The boost feature is not sufficient. there needs to be a way for us to increase the amount of water that is applied without having to make a manual schedule. That would defeat the purpose of using Netro. There needs to be a way for the user to correct the algorithm. The app will say that there should be 80% soil moisture but when I use a moisture meter and take a direct reading the moisture is around 30%.

Wrong scheduling?

Carlos Jimeno
Updated at 2022-07-30 07:49:09 UTC 

Hi. 


I've got my Netro Sprite with 10 zones configured. All of them with the smart watering feature. And 8 of them with he ECO program. It seems that my unit is overwatering. When I check the calendar most of the zones are watered twice and if I skip some of the zones both events dissapear and the whole time is filled with more instances is the non slipped zones. 



I've configured the watering time from 7:00 to 9:00 and some days it covers the whole time and others it covers from 6:00 to 9:00. 


Any ideas to solve it?. 


Thank you very much.
