Hot weather algorithm

Joshua Berk
Updated at 2019-05-17 16:15:51 UTC 

I live in Arizona and it's not really hot yet but it's starting to get warmer and I noticed my rye grass is starting to die off and everybody else's is very green.  I think it's because netro isn't watering as often as it should be when it gets warmer. I'm aware I can set a manual schedule but that kind of defeats the purpose of why I bought Netro. So what I'm saying is I think an algorithm needs to be adjusted so hot dry climates get a little more watering for winter grass that's still in season before the Bermuda comes in.

Manual mode fail to shut off

Junglim Huh
Updated at 2019-05-16 02:05:13 UTC 

Today, I went around the house to start the season, checking springklers, and one zone wouldn't stop in manual mode. I tried to be closer to home to get better Wifi signal. It still would not stop even if I turn on/off other zone. Shouldn't  manual stop override any previous malfunctions? I had to shut the main sprinkler valve for now because there was no way to stop the water for one particular zone.

Any fix for this? I am planning on a leave and that was the whole reason I got Netro, but this worries me if water won't shut off while I am away.

Why is one zone being favored when all zones are identical?

Steven V
Updated at 2019-05-18 13:08:55 UTC 
Just installed the system yesterday and I noticed zone 5 (of 5) for some reason is getting special treatment over the rest. All zones are set identically for the same types of grass, soil and sprinkler heads. However looking at the schedule zone 5 seems to be getting more attention than the rest (i.e.: only zone being watered during off days)  what's going on here?

Sprite seems to open valve then fails to deliver water to the system

David Claridge
Updated at 2019-05-18 13:21:53 UTC 

I have had my Sprite installed for a couple of weeks and all seemed well, but looking at my garden I realized it was not watering. When I turn it on manually I can hear a short buzz and water entering the valve, but there is no flow. I can open the valve manually and water then flows. I have reverted the valve to the old timer and it then opens the valve, so I don't think the problem lies there. 

I have the black wire on the valve connected to the common terminal, which was how it was set up on the old timer. I cannot figure out what the the problem is. 

I am an international user with a non-Netro PSU, but it seems to as specified: 24VAC 850mA Adapter AC-AC 100V-240V to 24VAC Power Supply Adapter UK PLUG

Can anyone help me overcome this problem with what otherwise seems to be an excellent system?

Have to reboot Sprite every day.

jpmeyer81
Updated at 2019-05-19 15:04:11 UTC 

My Netro worked perfectly last season.  I left it plugged in through the winter and disabled the zones.  At some point during the winter, the light started blinking, and I didn’t worry about it until last week when I went to reactivate the zones.  The app indicated the sprite was offline, so I rebooted and it came back online with a solid light.  System worked with no issues.

The next day, the light was flashing again and app indicated offline.  This time I pressed the rest button and rejoined the network.  Again, worked for a day.  The next day, same problem - this time I rebooted my router.  Again it worked, but offline again the next day.  Don’t understand why it keeps losing connection this year.

Remote Access?

Oliver Pettit
Updated at 2019-05-22 01:53:35 UTC 

Can you start the Pixie remotely?  i.e.  if I'm at work (i.e. not connected to my home network) I can start watering my garden?  If so is there anything I need to do to set this up?


Thanks, 


Oliver

I have a ton of errors again for the last two weeks!

Joshua Berk
Updated at 2019-05-23 18:39:21 UTC 

I just went to check on my sprinkler system since all of my grass has been dying and realized I've had errors on every watering attempt for the last 2 weeks!! I'm worried that a) it's not working and b) when it does start working it's going to flood my lawn again like it did last time because it tries to overwater for all the times it missed!


why aren't there any app notifications when this thing happens I shouldn't have to monitor the system manually to find out that it has not been watering for so long!

Soil type?

John Broadbent
Updated at 2018-06-16 14:27:36 UTC 
The app has a number of soil choices- I don’t know which to choose. I assume different soil has different water retention. Is there a list which shows how much water the different soil types require?  Or is there a way to tell which soil you have?

Two locations

Robert Garlick
Updated at 2018-06-22 13:31:35 UTC 

I have a system working in Florida and I just wanted to do the same thing in Kansas and I bought it and I have wired it but I haven't plugged it in because I don't know how I'm going to control each different location and I'm afraid something might go wrong and I won't be able to water in Florida.

So how do I control each separate location with the same phone?

Scheduling

Richard Hall
Updated at 2018-07-09 15:56:46 UTC 

i’ve had the controller installed for almost 2months now and it works fine. I like the idea that it seems to know how much to water and keep the lawn  green. However I have pets who use the backyard and would like the watering to be between 9 pm and 5 am.  I think the system can be setup for manual watering times BUT that defeats getting an expensive smart system to replace a low end rainbird system.  

Is there anyway to set up time constraints on the system and still run on automatic,


Also lack of a manual and good instruction is a pain.

Smart zone watering some zones multiple times

Jason Warren
Updated at 2018-07-10 11:29:26 UTC 

I have eight zones with smart watering enabled for all zones. I noticed this morning when looking at scheduling that a few of the zones will water multiple times in the same morning. For example, Zone one will water for 4 minutes, Zone 2, Zone 3 excetera. Then it goes back to Zone 1 for 3 minutes, and maybe zone for for 7 minutes. Is this normal?


I have inserted a screen shot.Notice the zone, "house left."
