Netro API throught NODE-RED error: EAI_AGAIN

Jose Lao
Updated at 2022-08-13 23:04:43 UTC 

There is any reason from the server side that I can get data using the API with the url using Chrome, but I get the message below trying to get the data using Node-Red?:

"RequestError: getaddrinfo EAI_AGAIN api.netrohome.com : https://api.netrohome.com/npa/v1/sensor_data.json?key=xxxxxxxxxxxx"

(xxxxxx is my the serial number)

I have to say that I successfully got the data using Node-Red with the first 5 or 10 petitions, but after that seems that I got a DNS block or permission denied using Node-Red, because if I use Chrome or Safari I'm able to get the data and the status OK.

How do you feel about the sites that texts write to you? For example, Domyessay.co. I often use it, and my friend says it's a waste of money. So I ask you, is it ok or not?

Netro Inc
Updated at 2022-08-12 01:42:14 UTC 
Topic: General

To the Netro community:


We are excited to introduce our new products, the Netro Zigbee Hub and the new smart timer Pixie-Z1. They combined deliver a different experience of smart watering system. 




The Netro Zigbee Hub hosts a long-range local Zigbee network that links all the end devices. It connects to your router (wireless or wired) to transfer data between the end devices and the Netro cloud service. The Hub will work with all our Zigbee products including the new timer Pixie-Z1(introduced below) and the new soil moisture sensor coming this year, as well as the new 4-Zone sprinkler controller and the new weather sensor coming next year.


The new host timer Pixie-Z1 is re-designed from the original Pixie timer in many ways:


1. Always online for instant quick runs. No more sleep mode

2. Powered by two AA alkaline batteries with approximately one year of battery life. Notifications on low battery

3. Supports Google Home and Google Assistant


The Netro Zigbee Hub and Pixie-Z1 are expected to ship in September. To join the Tester program please email to info@netrohome.com and we will send you a discount code in return for feedbacks.


Thanks,

Sprinklers run repeatedly

Sunil Sivanand
Updated at 2022-08-12 01:18:11 UTC 

I see that my sprinklers keep repeating the watering cycling through the zones. I have ser it for manual run. However, once started I cannot stop it from cycling. So I have keep the system disabled and enable only when the watering is to be done. I also have to keep watching to shut it down when the last zone is done.


I do not see any setting that could cause this behavior.

How to calculate Flow rate for drip irrigation?

Ethan R
Updated at 2022-08-11 20:18:04 UTC 
I use the facet tuner for drip irrigation to my dahlias. I want the custom setting to have it run at 40% until it gets to 90%

There is a flow rate with a default option. Is there any value in calculating my actual flow rate? Will it just estimate run time better or will it actually impact the run time?  Or will it run indefinitely till it gets to 90%?

Thanks

Damages due to constant water pressure on the system

Jorma Spitz
Updated at 2022-08-11 10:20:09 UTC 

Hi

I know this issue already got mentioned by other users over a year ago, but I would like to ask again for fixing this bug. I know that on a technical level fixing this will take only a few minutes. 

To my understanding the main valves is intended to avoid constant water pressure on the system. Unfortunately the closing sequence is mixed up and the main valve closes a second or two after the last watering valve closes. This means that there's contant water pressure on the system. At the moment I would need to manually open one of the valves three times a day to release the pressure (at 5:30AM, at 10AM and at 17PM). This is not exactly what I expect from a smart watering system. 

Just yesterday I had to replace a part of my systems because it broke due to the constant pressure. 

I know it's tempting to point at everybody else in order to refuse acknowledging that there is an important improvement to be made. But fixing this will probably cost less time than I used to write this text, seriously!

And while in my case it wasn't a Desaster because I was lucky that the pipe connection broke during manual activation of a watering program. But in other cases, if this happens without getting noticed, this could easily destroy a whole greenhouse of commercial food production.

That said, please fix this minor but important bug ASAP.

I really can't believe that you guys simply ignored the previous reports of this bug. But I hope you do the necessary steps to initiate the fixing of this bug.

Hi there, 

I'm noticing a very large difference (greater than 5 degrees) in the temperatures forcasted  provided by NetroWeather. Maybe my region isn't covered or forcasted accurately by the netro weather service. I didn't know if I am only experiecing this issue or if it is more widespread. Why is the recommendation 5 stars?

Hello,


In my settings the watering time is set from 2:00 to 6:00 in the morning.


The system shows in the watering plan that some zones will start after 6:00 oclock. 


This needs to be fixed because of a mowing robot wich would drive against the irrigation system

Why does this thing keep going offline?  I have added a signal booster to extend the Wi-Fi and when I reconnect it finds the network automatically and connects with no problem. Why does this thing keep going off-line? Beginning to doubt the quality of this product.

Smart Zone Frequency and duration

Gregor Schuller
Updated at 2022-08-05 07:45:41 UTC 

Hello,

in my app I have three zones for watering the lawn.

two of them are about 140 sqm and they are in the sun the whole day.

The third zone is about 60sqm and is in the shade from 11 or 12 oclock.


in the two bigger areas the frequency and duration wich is shown in the app is OK (mode: frequently every 1.98 days for 19.29 minutes)

in the smaller area the app shows in regular mode every 1.2 days for 38.57 minutes. but that is two much water on this small zone in the shade.


Is there a solution to change this?


Best regards
