There are three different levels of Netro’s smart watering you can choose from (For watering controllers, please go to Settings->Zones->Smart Zone; for hose faucet timers, please go to Settings->Garden->Smart Zone).
1. Smart watering: Level advanced
This is the default setting for the Netro watering controllers (Sprite and Spark). In this level, your zones will be watered automatically by Netro with smart schedules.
Netro will do everything for you, you do not need to set up the program/schedule.
Netro will skip smart watering and programs when there is large amount of rain(>0.2inch/ 5.08 mm) or watering regulations and manual restrictions.
You can inspect the Smart schedules in the calendar view. They are with the blue water-drop icons.
2. Smart watering: Level basic
This is the default setting for Netro Pixie hose faucet timer. In this level, no smart schedule will be generated. You will need to add programs manually (go to Settings->Programs to add programs) and Netro will skip programs when there is large amount of rain(>0.2inch/ 5.08 mm) or watering regulations.
If you do not want smart zone schedule to override your own programmed schedule, you can set up the Smart Zone level from Advanced to Basic, which only skip rainning days for your programmed schedule.
Please note when smart zone is enabled, your local regulations will automatic override your own program if there is any conflict. So when you set up your own program watering time, please do not conflict with your local Regulations if there is any. To check up regulations, please go to Settings->Regulations.
3. Smart-zone feature disabled
If you want to create your own programs and turn off smart zone feature and rain delay feature, go to Settings->Zones->Smart Zone (Settings->Garden->Smart Zone for Pixie Timer) and toggle the enable button. When the smart zone is disabled, the system will strictly follow the user program to water the zones. There is no intelligence here. Netro will not skip your schedules when there is rain. Regulation feature will not be in effect as well.
