Whisperer not working as expected

Tony D.
Updated at 2019-09-09 12:57:04 UTC 

I've been using my sprite with a Whisperer since a few months. The sprite works wonderfully but the whisperer has serious probloms. I get incorrect readings. Specifically my whisperer is stating 1% topsoil moisture level. Honestly this is impossible after a sprinkling succeded at 6:00 this morning. This misbehaving is going on since the first week. It works for the first day or two after resetting the whisperer but then it goes weird. On other occasions instead the topsoil moisture was stuck at 98% even after several days of not sprinling in full summer with temperatures over 35°. 

I have tried anything from resetting the whisperer to changing spot. At this point I'm led to think that the whisperer is broken.

Is anybody else having this strange behavior?

Do you have any other suggestion to solve this problem?


I have noticed that you are not giving due importance on support requests in this forum about whisperer problems. In my opinion you should put more effort into this.

Zones Shut Off But Show Running in App

Kirk Davis
Updated at 2019-08-16 02:54:33 UTC 

Having a problem since upgrade of the app. Doesn't seem possible unless the main unit updated as well. Valves close within a few minutes of being activated by manual start, or programmed schedule. Have not test with smart watering disabled, but it happens on manual starts, so not sure that is even a variable. The Zone still shows as actively watering in the application. If you submit a stop  action by pressing the red square,then restart, via the sideways triangle, the zone will come back on again. However, it shortly shuts back off, while still showing the zone as being actively watered. This is happening across all four of my zones. Curiously, if you unplug the controller after the valve shuts off, but the app still shows it watering, wait a bit, and then plugit back int-the zone comes backon shortly after reboot.

Install

Daniel Alman
Updated at 2019-08-05 15:17:08 UTC 
Post install and after first unsuccessful run, it says it watered but it definitely did not, I found an extra wire that I had plugged into ‘C’ next to the ‘M’, that I had left unplugged in my last successful Netro setup. I have now unplugged it and did another unsuccessful run. My question is, when making a wiring tweak like that do I need to press the ‘RST’ before proceeding with a run?

Where's our promised update?

Kirk Davis

It's the last day of the month and the new version still hasn't dropped. You are already a month past your original commit date. Please stop marketing products that are add-ons, when the software is lagging substantially. The big companies are going to catch, kill and eat you unless you start running faster.
