Programming square footage

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.

Is a full time wifi connection required for watering? Or any other unattended modes of failure?

Chris Graham
Updated at 2020-05-24 20:43:23 UTC 
Topic: General

If wifi is disrupted will the controller continue to water acording to the most recently programmed schedules?


More generally are there any modes of failure (other than loss of power to the house) where the controller can unexpectedly halt watering?  It would be unacceptable to have one's garden die from lack of water if the system fails when one is away from home for a number of days.

Server upgrade scheduled on May 16th between 8:30PM and 9:00PM (Pacific Time)

Netro Inc
Updated at 2020-05-17 03:23:28 UTC 
Topic: General

To all Netro customers:


Due to rapid increase of active devices connected to the Netro cloud server, we are going to upgrade our server on May 16th Saturday night from 8:30PM to 9:00PM (Pacific Time). During that time frame, all cloud service will be temporarily unavailable but your watering schedules will run normally. If you have a smart watering controller, the light on the unit will blink fast.


Thanks,

Netro Inc

What's the point option to set the irrigation time at 0 minutes in manual execution? 

It would be more useful a 30 seconds run for testing the valves.
