Manual runs not working and watering during rain

Rebekah H
Updated at 2021-06-13 19:48:23 UTC 

Hello, 


My Netro has been watering despite heavy rains. The home page shows the soil is 100% saturated. Also, when I try to manually run the system, none of the zones will come on. I’ve tried the reset button and I’ve tried unplugging the system but it still won’t work. 


Any ideas?

ifttt or .ics support

Michael Landesman
Updated at 2020-07-20 19:01:42 UTC 
I see that there is some ifttt integration but is it limited to control language and some data logging. What I would like to see is either an .ics subscription calendar or API access to post the next, scheduled water days by zone. It would have to be updated when the app updates and only needs to look out to the next scheduled watering day (start/end time would be helpful too). This would allow me to see when I need to move yard furniture, etc. 

Please add to suggestion/enhancement list.


Thank you.

watering sequence

Gérard GALBOIS
Updated at 2019-08-26 18:23:46 UTC 

It is unfortunatly not possible to change  in which ordre the watering will act.

for exemple I need to water zone 5 after zone 7 because zone 7 is at a higher level than the electro valve and remaining water pressure, after watering is stopped,  is to strong and prevents the valve to close . by watering supplemantary  zone 5 which is lower the pressure diminishes ans the valve of zone 7 closes..

Buongiorno a tutti, 

Qualcuno può aiutarmi a capire se la centralina anche se offline e quindi non comandabile a distanza continuerà a irrigare quanto già pianificato automaticamente?? 

Purtroppo non posso andare prima di qualche giorno e ho paura che si secchi tutto... 

grazie mille 

Saluti

I irrigation zones attaches to the same sensor. 

I do not understand why the smart schedule do not schedules the same amount of time, and dates for the 2 zones.

Hi Netro Community, I just bought a house with a huge yard and the Netro system. Spent a lot of time identifying zones and getting the watering right by nozzle type, square footage, etc. Some areas still seem too dry and others’ too wet. So…


How can I be sure I have selected the right soil type? 


How can I verify I have the right grade of slope selected by zone? 


Other ways I can help Netro identify dry spots?

Can the time be changed on the schedule to AM/PM and not 24/hr clock? 

AccuWeather.com if selected waters in the AM. If i switch it to the other 2 it changes the schedule to PM watering. What is the reasoning behind this? I would prefer AM watering but would like to use a different weather provider.

Notifications

Cam
Updated at 2020-04-29 19:55:03 UTC 

It is obvious there is big demand for notifications.  Like a notification when the system begins watering.  Anyone know why Netro refuses to add notifications? I asked for this a year and half ago and was told by Netro they did not want to "spam" its customers.  What, spam?  Makes no sense.  The notifications could easily be turned on/off, right?


I love the Netro system, but notifications seems like a no-brainer.  Again, anyone know why this is not being implemented?  Or has it been implemented and i missed it?  Thank you.

Smart scheduling problem with sensor watering adjustment configuration

Alfonso Olias Sanz
Updated at 2021-03-29 08:57:05 UTC 

I have checked in the smart schedule that tomorrow is programmed to run zones that should be skipped.

I have set up the whisperer to skip run if moisture is above 40%. Current moisture is:

  • Zone 2 - 92%
  • Zone 5 - 70%

Doubts about installation and required devices

Juan Pascual
Updated at 2021-09-22 17:57:24 UTC 
I would like to know how to manage the following garden.
I currently have 5 areas of lawn and other plants, with 3 Hunter PGP sprinklers for each area. Of these 5 zones, there are two with a lot of shade, and the rest are sunny (central Spain).
On the other hand, I have another zone with 6 diffusers, and a last one with a drip system for the Leylandy hedge.
I am interested in acquiring a Spark programmer but... how many Whisperer would I need?

How does Spark differentiate between the different zones and how does it combine the amount of humidity needed? The type of grass I have is made up of Raygrass, Fescue, Poa, and Agrostis. I could send you a plan of my system for your advice.


the outer lines indicate the individual irrigation fields.
AREAS A1 - A2 -A3 - A4 -B1 and B4 are the shadiest areas.
These areas are shadier due to the height of the hedge.

For orientation, a straight line between points 13 and 8 marks the North-South line, where 13 is South and 8 is North.
Neither the diffuser area nor the drip line of the hedge is represented here.
The water inlet is located in the legend E1, between sprinklers 12 and 13.


Thank you very much.

No Next Scheduled run date?

I have my device set up as "lawn" under my devices.  I have a program set up which has a run time for each of the zones, supposedly scheduled to start June 7.  Why is there no scheduled run appearing under my schedule or anything under my "next run" field under my listed device?

Smart scheduling problem with sensor watering adjustment configuration

Alfonso Olias Sanz
Updated at 2020-07-28 05:32:10 UTC 

I have an issue/conflict  with the watering adjustments for the sensors and the Smart Zone Sheduling

I have seen something weird. 



  • I Have set up the Watering Adjustment for sensors the following I describe o be sure about the problem
  • Moisture to Skip watering 50%
  • Moisture to Add watering 30%
  • Duration 5 minutes (only) -- it is a check
  • The Smart Zones are st up the following
  • Smart Zone - enabled
  • Mode - regular


The watering run today only 5 minutes, when the smart  schedule  defined by the system was above that. As you can see, tomorrow watering says different time runs per zone, but it will run a maximum of 5 minutes. This means that the sensor configuration overrides the Smart Zone. And it should not.

As far as I understand the Watering adjustemt is to add EXTRA watering when needed based on the moisture level. Attached picture


Prior to this setup I had the Duration for Watering Adjustment for 15  and 10 minutes, and you can see in the past days runs, that always run for 15 -10 minutes depending the zone/sensor. - Attached picture

In previous weeks, it was working fine and adding extra watering when need it to keep the moisture levels.

Any idea?


I DID THE CHANGES PROPOSED BY NETRO  and it is not working

Take a look the screen shots



Zones 3,4,5 it is below the 30% trigger
