Plant Sensors Monitoring Multiple Zones

Netro Support
Updated at 2019-08-07 06:39:15 UTC 

To the Netro community:


We recently have launched an update for the Netro app on App Store and Google Play. In the newest version of the app, we allow one sensor to monitor up to 3 zones but the user needs to make sure the zones have similar environmental conditions.


Please upgrade your app to the newest version and go to Settings->Sensors, select a sensor, go to Zones and select the zones you would like to monitor.

            

            

After saving the changes, you can go to the Home page and check the topsoil moisture level of your zones reported by sensor.


Please feel free to explore other new and exciting features that we just added : 

1.Support Apple Watch

(only available for iOS )


2.Support Weather Underground PWS

(Settings->Controller->Weather Provider)


3.Rainfall adjustment

(Please go to the Discover page and tap the "+" button on the upper right corner,  select "Correct Rainfall")


Regards,

Netro Support

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.

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.

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.

Notifications

Addiel Isaac Moldes
Updated at 2020-07-19 11:43:54 UTC 
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.

Netro and Home Assistant

Jens Wymeersch
Updated at 2021-07-28 18:18:16 UTC 

Although that I'm still hoping Netro will start understanding their appliance/app is only a smart part of a smart home ecosystem and start integrating with Home Assistant. Even huge vendors like Tuya, have understood that this is essential for most Home Automation Enthusiast. 

For the time being, some folks have used the API to get some data to home assistant https://community.home-assistant.io/t/netro-integration/51012/13


I believe a lot of us are happy with the appliance, but aren't looking at it often enough. Result in my case at least that my whisperer was out for more than a month. This could have been avoided if we had an integration to Home Assistant who would have alerted me.

So please Netro, do the extra mile !

Hola les cuento mi experiencia con Netro, trabajo actualmente en el estado de Nueva York, y tengo 500 plantas de bluebery en Chile souh America, y lo controlo desde acá, he tenido excelentes resultados con el sensor de humedad, me hubiese gustado que el sensor fuera más largo, pero con el actual se ha manejado perfecto, también creo que deberían diseñar una caja más robusta para exteriores, estoy muy feliz con la aplicación con el equipo y el sensor.

High Quality Weed Seeds For Sale

Lloyd Walter
Updated at 2022-03-23 08:31:18 UTC 

- indica weed seeds - these will grow into a short, bushy plant with fruity flavors and effects.

- sativa weed seeds - these will grow into a taller, lanky plant with more cerebral effects.

- ruderalis weed seeds - these will grow into a short, bushy plant with potent effects.

The cannabis plant is a flowering plant that is used for both recreational and medical purposes. The plant has been used by humans since the beginning of recorded history. Cannabis use can be traced as far back as 10,000 years ago.

There are many benefits to using cannabis, such as relieving chronic pain, stimulating appetite, reducing nausea and vomiting during chemotherapy, and treating sleep apnea. It is also effective in reducing the symptoms of PTSD and other anxiety disorders.

Cannabis can be consumed in many forms including smoking it or drinking it in tea form. Smoking cannabis has been shown to improve lung function and reduce chronic pain symptoms while drinking it can help with nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy treatment.
