watering usage doesn't match

Sangjin Lee
Updated at 2019-06-21 22:49:22 UTC 
Topic: General

Here is something I cannot reconcile. I am dealing with a pretty big water usage reported by the utility. It says in the month of May I used 530 GPD (gallons per day). I seem to be watering every 3 days (set by Netro).


Compared to winter months when I rarely watered the lawn due to the rainy season, it is a jump of ~ 270 GPD.


When I check the Netro app, it reports I used ~ 3.5 CCF for the month of May. 1 CCF = 748 gallons, and that translates to roughly 87 gallons per day. This is less than 1/3 of what the utility is telling me. How can this discrepancy be explained? Any ideas/tips for finding why I seem to be using this much water? Thanks in advance!

Two zones on same spot

Ken Wiens
Updated at 2018-07-31 22:06:08 UTC 

I have 4 zones. Two of these cover the same piece of ground. One zone has pgm sprayers and the other zone has regular sprayers .But they cover exactly the same area. How do I tell the app this so that it knows that running the sprinklers for one zone waters the same trees and grass as the other zone? 


To try and clarify the question - these zones cover the same physical piece of ground, (they overlap 100%) but netro doesn't know that, so it will water one zone and think the other zone is still in need of watering - and thus water the same grass twice. (each zone once so the same grass twice).  Netro's algorithm for determining soil moisture levels can't work if it doesn't realize these two zones are the same physical piece of grass.

What about blowout?

New system owner. When having fall blowout performed, I found I needed to be present to run each zone. I didn’t find a way to provide access to the technician. Other systems on the market provide this function. 

Why doesn’t this one?

How to delete a device

Carles
Updated at 2021-04-16 12:33:31 UTC 

I wanted to add a whisper sensor to my existing system.  I accidentally added it as a new device.  I did eventually add the new whisper sensor to my original device.  The issue is I now have two devices in the app.  The first is a device named Ros Reg that has my two whisper sensors attached and a second device named Sensor de planta with nothing attached to it. I want to delete the device  named Sensor de planta.  I cannot find a way to delete it.

T'he third device is named Ros Gotero

Accuracy of dark sky in Canada

Ken Wiens
Updated at 2018-07-31 03:16:54 UTC 

The dark sky android app is not available in Canada  so I wonder how accurate their weather is here.  To try and determine this for myself, I looked at the netro temperature graph..  Today it is 34C at my house  but the temperature summary graph in  Netro says it is only 22C. (for my friends still using Fahrenheit that is about a 24F difference )  Does anyone know when Netro gets the temperature that it uses in the graph? Other thoughts on dark sky accuracy in Canada?

Google Home Commands not Working

Derrick
Updated at 2019-06-23 13:34:06 UTC 
For some reason, when I give Google the command to "talk to netro sprite to water zone for 5 minutes" or "ask netro sprite to water zone for 5 minutes" Netro comes back and says "I have stopped watering.  What else can I do for you?"  It won't do anything else but turn off the zones.  Why is this?

Multiple Pixies?

J Forrest
Updated at 2021-04-17 03:33:18 UTC 

Can multiple pixies be controlled through the app as different zones?  Can they run sequentially - i.e. manually run all zones for 15 minutes one after the other?  Is a controller required for any of that?


Thanks

Can’t Delete Whisper Sensor

I added the sensor as a stand alone, then added it to a pixie. Now I can’t figure out how to delete the whisper from the drop down screen. I go into settings and there are no sensors to choose from. Screenshots attached.

Netro and Alexa

Ken Wiens
Updated at 2018-07-30 22:29:36 UTC 

I've loaded the Alexa skill for Netro. When I tell Alexa to ask Netro to water a zone, it just looks up references for "metro" instead. Much as I appreciate Alexa looking up train schedules for me, I'm curious if others have had this problem.  I've tried pronouncing  it "net row" and "neat row" but  neither gets recognized. 


This isn't a critical issue, as I'm not sure I would ever see the point in voice control over my sprinklers  but thought I would set it up to try anyway

Able to create zones with Pixie?

Mike Willet
Updated at 2021-06-24 20:47:47 UTC 

I have 8 pixie faucet timers and 4 whisper sensors:

3 for backyard

3 for front yard

1 for drip irrigation in front

1 for drip irrigation in back

I’m trying to assign the 3 front timers in a single zone and sync with 1 whisper sensor. So far, the sensor only seems to sync with 1 timer and each timer shows up as a separate zone.

Also want the same for the back yard. Is this possible?

Can pixie timers be used to create zones?
