Program set for 20 minutes per zone but watered for only 5 min

Updated at 2020-05-17 13:18:19 UTC 

Hello All, I have three zones and created a program to do a deep water for 20 min. Starting from 5AM and ending at 6AM which is expected to run every 3 days. This morning was the first time I ran it and noticed on my home screen it said watered for 5 min. Any reason why this changed? I'm thinking smart watering has to do with this? If so, I'd like to try and keep this feature for the rain aspect (not to run when it will rain). I read if you disable smart watering (which I can't find this feature anymore), then it will still run the  program when it rains,anyway if I'm in the right ballpark to have your cake and eat it too. 


Thanks in advance

Is it possible to link an activity such as a scheduled zone watering to switch a specific smart light? I have 6 smart lights in my kitchen and would love if they where linked to my 6 watering zones.

Default rain settings

What is the default setting for not watering the day before and after a rain day? I think it was to skip the day before and of, but not the day after (wish I could reset defaults). Why is the default what it is?


Also, why is the rain delay trigger 0.2? What would happen if I changed it to 0.1?

hello,

 I have a problem with a Whisperer, it turns off, when turned on it detects the data, after an hour it should detect the data again instead it turns off.  I bought 3, the other 2 work perfectly.  I send you photos of zone 6 where the Whisperer is connected.  I did the reconfiguration again but nothing has changed.  I need help.

Thanks

Sprite app says its watering but it is not

Updated at 2020-05-03 18:02:31 UTC 

It has been working for 3 weeks, but now it does not. 

I have checked all 7 zones. No wiring issues. Has proper voltage. 

It just won't come on. How do I get it to work again. This is a new unit. Sprinklers are all fine and had a tune up when the Sprite was installed. 

I have unplugged it and plugged it back in. I need help soon, I have new sod and many new plants in my yard and gardens.

Hi

Although the app tells me I’m on line my sprinklers will not activate. I’m not sure if there been a recent update, however had the same problem last year with firm wear. I’m based in the UK, so not sure if this makes a difference 

Please help

Buongiorno, ho installato correttamente la centralina Netro.

Ora ho installato due sensori whisperer, li ho collegati alla centralina e vedo i dati correttamente ma non riesco a collegarli alle due zone che ho creato.

Leggono solo i dati ma restano indipendenti dalle zone irrigate.

Ho provato a resettarli e reinstallarli ma non mi viene mai chiesto in che zona abbinarli.

Nella home Page della centralina Netro, entrando nella cartella sensori non vengono visti.


Grazie.

I turned my irrigation system on this year, and the controller is working great. However, the plant Sensor hasn't checked in since last year; so I went to reconnect it to my wifi. When I press the button 6 times, all I get is a flashing red light.

Power outage detection and more

Gian Piero Pepino
Updated at 2020-04-25 09:23:06 UTC 
Hello,
I’ve just bought my first Sprite and Whisperer and really eager to receive them and start them running in my garden.
In Italy, where I live, we often have this situation: during “off summer season” we live in town, but the garden is located in an holiday site, for instance at the seaside house (this is my case). It may happen that we experiment, sometimes, but unpredictably, a “power outage” accident. 
As far as I know, Netro has implemented a “cloud application”. Is it possible to be promptly advised that a “power outage” has just occurred? That would be quite useful, since if I’m promptly known of the issue, I can immediately take a properly action to recover the outage (with the help of a neighbour for instance). This may also be some kind helpful to support the diagnosis around the cause of the issue. I think that the “use case” might be the following: if Sprite is not set to “off mode” and have “no answer” to the check, send a message “possible power outage on Sprite id XXX”. Desirable channel of communication: email, whatsup, sms, … I’d really appreciate to know what you think about my proposition. I really deem it could be a very appreciated “complementary, but valuable service”.
Second question: is there any update on the list of the Meteo Forecasting Providers thar are supported by Netro? I’m interested particularly in Meteo.it and 3bmeteo.com
Thank you very much for your attention and support

Best sync option?

jbart65
Updated at 2020-04-22 02:56:17 UTC 

Got a Pixie. Set my sync time to 6 hours for now. Hopefully I won’t have to tinker much.


Is there any compelling reason I should set it to 1 hour or 3 hours if I don’t plan to mess with the settings? Does Netro have a recommendation?

I have added netro to google home. The netro device in my garden now shows offline "does not respond". It flashes to "connecting" each second which quickly fails. 

controlling via the app works fine.

Keep Connected option

jbart65
Updated at 2020-04-17 17:38:10 UTC 

Since wifi uses a fair amount of regular power, I assume the Pixie cannot be kept connected to the Internet or remain online for long periods of time. Yet the instructions and website don't seem to offer much guidance, and if so, I have not been able to find it.


So I experimented. I set the Keep Connected option to 9 am to 7:30 pm for Thursday. Seems the battery went dead in a day. 


I gather the Keep Connected option is limited. If so, any guidance would be appreciated. I did find it concerning that neither the Netro app nor the experimental web app showed the rapid deterioration in battery power.


Ideally users would have the option to set multiple blocks for Keep Connected. For example, I would like the Pixie to stay online from 7 am to 8 am and then again from 6 pm to 7 pm. Is that something that's in the works? I know most customers might not need such an option, but for some such as myself it would be useful.


I also imagine there is some kind of obstacle to the device sending out a WAKE UP command when a user wants to connect. Such as feature would obviously be great.


The particulars: 


The Netro app said I had 82% power at the start of Thursday. The app also said I had 82% power as of Friday morning (data appeared frozen in retrospect).

 

On Friday afternoon, the app suddenly told me it was zero power (while the experimental web app told me it was at 84% power and then 9% power on Fri afternoon). The app went from showing itself to be ONLINE, as it should, to NEXT SYNC. No warning or anything or the app showing a gradual depletion of power.

Which Alexa app?

jbart65
Updated at 2020-04-16 20:00:55 UTC 

Just got a Pixie. I downloaded both Netro and Netro Home for Alexa. Both work, but should one be disabled? 


The Netro app seems a bit simpler to use (but still clunky). By contrast, Alexa asks if I want to open the Nextro Home app every time I give a command.


Ideally the commands would be simplified, but at least I can get it to work.

Hi,

I found netro home app in google home and add with my account to my home. When I click on it I can only start and stop netro without control on which zone I want to do this action. I suppose that it will go in order through the zones. Could be possible to add a zone control on this action? 

Thanks for your support.
