Netro has updated max day regulation

Netro Support
Updated at 2019-12-25 01:46:02 UTC 

To the Netro Community,


Recently Netro has enabled the max day Restriction in Settings->Regulation for those cities which limit watering to one or two days per week. We are aware that many cities are under mandatory regulation and the penalty for violating the water regulations is large, therefore, we have enabled the max day regulation.

Users can go to Settings->Regulations to check and please feel free to report us if the regulation is incorrect.

For some local regulations, we are not quite sure if it is conservation plan or mandatory regulation. If the regulation is not needed, please write to us support@netrohome.com and we will check and update our regulation database accordingly.


Thanks,
Netro Support

How to replace an old controller with more than 12 zones

Netro Inc
Updated at 2019-11-06 09:20:19 UTC 

If your old controller has more than 12 zones, you will need to have 2 Netro controllers to replace it. Please follow the diagram below to safely wire the 2 controllers:



Now you can use the 2 C slots for the common wires and the 2 sets of 1-12 slots for the zone wires. If you do not have a master valve or pump, just ignore the orange wires.


IMPORTANT: the blue wire has to be connected to the left 24VAC on both controllers and the yellow wire has to be connected to the right 24VAC on both controllers.


Please contact us if you need the wire connectors shown in the picture.

Fertilization program

Andrea Merito
Updated at 2020-04-27 14:30:47 UTC 

Good morning,

I ask you for a suggestion in your app.  in the program menu, in addition to displaying the manual and automatic programming, can you enter a command regarding fertilization?  I use fertilizers from the Bottos company, where each product has its weight and timing.  Maybe create a partnership with the big fertilizer companies.


Best.

Netro Inc

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,

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.

And we are off and running.   Whisper went in the ground and started reporting right away.  Would be nice to connect it to my Ambient weather station as well.

Notifications

It would be great if you add an option for notifications once irrigation starts/finishes.Sometimes we need to start it manually and need to wait until one zone is completed to start the next one. A notification in the phone would avoid opening the application all the time to see if the current zone is completed.
