Whisperer won't blink white during setup

Kevin Westling
Updated at 2021-06-12 03:01:46 UTC 
Prior to installing a whisperer to my system, I set it up outside in direct sunlight for 5 days. When I try to add it to my Sprite, the light only blinks red once. I've tried multiple times to press the power button 6 times and it's still just flashing red just once. What am I doing wrong?

Choice of irrigation hardware

Lyndon Whyatt
Updated at 2021-06-09 21:01:28 UTC 

Hi I have ordered a Netro spark controller and three sensors. My next step is choosing 12VAC solenoids, a drip irrigation system for beds and pots and a misting system for my propagation bench.

I am new to this and would appreciate a pointer to recommended setups and suppliers.

Do I locate valves near to the Spark and run underground hoses to my beds or am I better off running cables to valves next to the beds? What are the pros and cons?

Connect one whisperer to two pixies

Updated at 2021-05-24 14:14:03 UTC 

Hi, 

For the moment, I have one whisperer connected to one pixie, and everything is working fine.

I have a question though, if I would add another pixie to control another watering zone, can I connect the same whisperer to that second pixie?

In other words, can I connect one whisperer to two pixies?

Thx,

JM

Does the Pixle have to be installed with the water coming into it on the "Hose Faucet Connection" side?

dad@darkroom.ai
Updated at 2021-04-03 19:04:13 UTC 

Basically, is the Pixie water control valve one way, or can it shut off/turn on with pressure from either side?  In order to install it so the button faces up, I need to install it so the water comes in what is labeled as the "Outlet" side.  I don't know if it's labeled "Outlet" because it is a male connection, or because it cares about the direction of the water.  Otherwise, I will need to buy a male/male and female/female adapter, flip it "upside down" and use it with the button facing down.


Thanks.

Sensor not starting

Joan Peiro
Updated at 2021-03-06 08:53:31 UTC 

Good morning


I have received two days ago my new sensor. I am not able to start the sensor to proceed with the installation.  

When I press the power button it makes a short flash in red after releasing but does not turn to white , blink or green.  


Same effect when I press quickly  three times or six times.   It only produces a short flash in red.  I can not proceed with the installation as my app does not find the Netro wifi of the sensor as it is off.    I tried to leave the sensor under solar exposure for a full day with no change in the behavior.  Still just a short red flash after pressing the power button but nothing else.

Can you guide me how to solve the problem?

My sensor doesn’t blink white led. When I presses the power button, it shows solid white for a while and then green color and red and goes off. The instructions make me confused. I tried to press the power button for 6 times. What does restart 3 times means? My sensor never goes to blinking white color.

Second house

HaccasDave
Updated at 2020-09-29 18:20:51 UTC 

I'm in the very fortunate position of having 2 homes - one in the UK and one in Spain. We've just had the garden reworked in the UK and I've been able to install an irrigation system controlled by a single Sprite controller. 


I'm very pleased with how this is working - and now want to upgrade the manual irrigation system we have in our Spanish house to a smart system. Can Netrohome / the (Android) app manage 2 different irrigation systems in 2 different locations (with 2 very different climates)?


Many thanks.

loose connection on install

Lawrence Jones
Updated at 2020-09-15 22:49:22 UTC 

The unit is working good, yeah!  The way the wires get tab/push for contact is really cheap.  The "spring" of the contact is very , very loose.

Move the wire at all and no contact.  Then trouble shooting to find where trouble is.  Not a good design. Need a much more firm grip on the bare wire. something else or just poor quality?
