My Netro connected to my Wi-Fi but Whisperer will not. It just keeps blinking slowly, white LED. It also won’t connect to my Netro app that is running my watering system.

Battery status

Is there a way to see the battery status (devices that use batteries) in the app home screen? It would be of great use when one is leaving the home for a few days, to make sure the device will have enough charge for those days.

Hi, I have a Hozelock Micro Irrigation system with multiple Universal Drippers that supply 40 Litre per hour. I would welcome any advice on the best way to set up the app, for a Netro Pixie and this setup. Should Smart Zone be used on basic or auto with user fixed schedules.  Any advice welcomed from experienced Nitro users on the best way to use my new Netro device. Thanks.

Question about smart watering durations

sw238
Updated at 2020-07-05 15:42:38 UTC 

Hey, I'm a techie and I have a question about your "smart watering". What is the feedback loop that you use?


My zones are vastly different -- some have very small spray heads, and some have very large rotors that pump out a lot of water. At first glance, I cannot see any way to (a) indicate how much water is delivered per zone or (b) indicate how moist the soil actually is.


Assuming that I have not missed anything, I have a few suggestions:

  1. Provide a mechanism for indicating the water deliver rate for each zone
  2. Provide a mechanism for manually imputing the actual, measured moisture of the soil
  3. Provide a "hint" mechanism for each gone (e.g. "This zone is too dry" / "this zone is too wet") which would in tyrn influence the smart watering.

Advanced smart watering not working

Michael Fortwengler
Updated at 2020-07-04 19:06:14 UTC 
I have advanced watering set up and it shows that it will water every six days for an hour broken into 10 minute segments. However, in reality, it only waters for 10 minutes and then shifts the schedule to the next day. It never waters more than 10 minutes even though the schedule says it will total an hour. My moisture levels always stay low in the 50% range and never automatically go to 100% unless I force a manual watering. This is very frustrating.

Why did my manual run not register under moisture percentage area

ducati1198804
Updated at 2020-07-04 13:11:16 UTC 

Hi,  


I did 3 separate manual runs for zones 1, 2, 3, 7 today and my moisture percentage didn't change at all.   


Zone 1-11 minutes each run

Zone 2-11 minutes each run

Zone 3-06 minutes each run

Zone 7-06 minutes each run


So in total zones 1 and 2 ran 33 minutes each, and zones 3 and 7 ran 18 minutes each.  


Why am I still showing the same 65% moisture level that I showed before I did any of these manual runs today?

Sunlights graph for the current day is always wrong

Igor
Updated at 2020-06-25 14:27:46 UTC 
I’ve noticed what sunlight graph shows wrong value for the current day. This value is always higher than any other day but it gets corrected later. 
For instance, screenshot below was done Thursday morning at 7am. I can not believe I had that much sun during the night. But tomorrow graph will show much lower value for Thursday. And that happens every day

Not watering nearly often enough.

Rob and Susan Tartre
Updated at 2020-06-24 20:13:25 UTC 

I need the Netro system to water every day in this hot, dry climate. Our lawn is turning brown. It’s used to being watered every day. The smart watering system is watering every 4 days. I have both the frequency set to high and the moisture levels set to high. I do not have sensors. What else can I adjust to get it to run every day. I’m trying to figure out how to choose everyday using the smart system. Do I just need to set manual program? That kind of defeats the purpose of having smart watering (adjusting for rain, etc.)

Thank you for any help!!

Programming square footage

Topic: General

Hello - I just installed the Netro pixie and whisperer to to water our golden goddess bamboos in planters. We have a drip irrigation system and I’m not sure what to put in the “sq ft” parameter in the Netro app. We have a total of 7 planters that are all hooked to the same hose /drip irrigation hose. Each planter is 41″ x 12″ x 18″. What should I list as the sq feet? Is it just one planter or all 7?

Also - does the whisperer talk to the pixie to tell it how often it should water and automatically water as such? Is there anything I need to do to turn on that function? I live in Los Angeles and our bamboos are up on our deck where it gets extremely hot/dry. 

Thanks!

User Guide - Manual watering with your Pixie timer

Netro Inc
Updated at 2020-06-22 07:37:55 UTC 

The Pixie timer is designed for automatic watering. However, occasionally you may still need to turn on/off the water manually. Before explaining manual watering from the app, it would be helpful to understand how the Pixie communicates with the Netro cloud server.


By default, your Pixie turns on its WiFi module once every hour to sync up with the server. The sync-up usually takes less than one minute. For the next 59 minutes the timer will be sleeping and disconnected from the WiFi until the next sync. When the timer is sleeping, it is unaware of the schedule changes, including the manual watering.


Therefore, when you start a manual run, the timer is most likely in sleep mode. It will have to wait until the next sync-up to start the watering. The waiting time will be less than 60 minutes. Take the following screenshot for example:



The current time is 5:24AM and the next sync is scheduled at 6:17AM. Therefore the waiting time is going to be 53 minutes. After you press the Start button, you can go to the Schedule page and the manual run at  6:17AM will appear on your calendar.

Certificate Expired?

Robohead
Updated at 2020-06-19 20:03:10 UTC 
My Netro app on my phone and iPad will not let me sign in today. Instead, it shows an error message saying the Netro website certificate has expired and it’s dangerous to login. This is concerning because I did not know that if the website is down, I do not have any control over watering my lawn. None. Is there a way to get around this or do I need to return my sprite 6 smart water controller?
