Range of whisperer

Updated at 2020-04-16 19:35:32 UTC 

Is there a maximum distance I can place the whisperer(s) in the garden. Largest distance it should cover is approx. 30 mtrs.

The sprite probably will be placed inside.

Faucet Connector Broke

Updated at 2020-04-14 18:49:27 UTC 

I was having difficulty getting a leakproof seal when attaching my Smart Hose Faucet Timer (Pixie-1) to my new faucet. I finally was able to tighten it tight enough not to leak, but after a week, it broke and popped off. It is probably under warranty, but is there somewhere I can buy a new connector and repair it myself?

Good afternoon. 


 I have problems because I don't recognize the wifi.  I'll explain. First I connect by wifi to netro and it does not give me any problems.  But when I go back to the next screen to connect the mobile to the wifi and the wifi from home no longer appears. He's gone. And I can't continue with the installation.

Is it working correctly? 0v test multimeter

yodiego
Updated at 2020-03-07 12:14:59 UTC 

Hi good morning,

I’m making the first installation and I see the valves don’t open when I tested it, so I test the connections with a multi-meter and sometimes it gives 24v and sometimes 0.
The last 10 tries it gives 0. I changed the cables and I now I test directly the controller connections and keep giving me 0.
I’m using the manual watering to make the tests.
Is it working correctly?
Thank you for your help.

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.

Installation Direct to pump

Tim Foster
Updated at 2019-10-03 11:23:32 UTC 

OK. I have my plumber installing this. Unfortunately, this is México and so beyond the basics, most plumbers are struggling about in the dark. We've figured most of it out, but we're a bit in the dark on a couple of bits.


I have the following:

A ground source well with a Franklin Electric submersible pump as my water source. This pumps directly from the ground to the zone controller.

The zone controller is an Antelco EzyValve4 solenoid (https://antelco.com/us/products/valves/automatic/ezyvalve-4). This has a water input and four zone outputs. Each of the four solenoids has two wires and their website shows how to connect 1 of the wires together as the common and then the other four for each controller. This is all good.

The problem is power to the pump. The Netro installation video says "if you have a master valve, connect that to the M slot". I googled a bit and found "A master valve is an automatic valve that is installed at the point where the irrigation system connects to the water supply. (Sometimes this circuit is called a “pump start circuit”. Both types of circuits work identical, and can be used for a pump and/or a master valve.) The controller turns the master valve on and off."

So, does this mean I connect the power from the pump directly to the "M" slot? and would this then turn on the pump when a zone is opened for watering? So, Zone 1 comes on to water the garden, does this also switch the pump on?

From what I understand the pump will be 110v, so do I need a relay unit between the pump wire and the Neatro (24v)?


Can anyone give me a confirmation that this is the right way to configure it please?

New Whisper not reporting

Derrick Rose
Updated at 2019-09-04 17:11:14 UTC 
I recently ordered a second whisper and installed it the same way as the first one I received (which is still working fine)  It connects just fine and I can even change the color of the LED for a while.  But it reported only once to the app and that was it.  I have tried reconnecting it to WiFi, I even deleted it in the app and reinstalled it with no success.  After the initial connection it seems to just stop working.

Sprite doesn't open valve

Tony D.
Updated at 2019-08-06 20:38:31 UTC 

I'm doing a first installation with an 100-HV-FF 24V ACRain Bird valve.I connected the wires to the C and 1 connector to serve zone 1. I populated the zone in the app. Because I want to test the system before I disassemble my previous I did not install the valve between the pipes. I click the "play" triangle in app home screen but I get no reaction from the valve. The solenoid is completely closed. I am using the 24V AC/AC adapter bought on your website.

Does the valve need water flowing through to work properly?


Thank you

Adapter in EU

Hi, 
I am Lukas from the Netherlands. I have ordered a Netro sprite-6 on without a power adapter. 
In the Netherlands we have 230V AC on the power grid. I am having serious trouble to find a power adapter that goes to 24V AC 800mA. 

The only one I can find has an output of  24V AC 1000mA, will that be ok? 

Or is there a better alternative out there?


Thank you,

Configuration for Netro Sprite suggestions requests

Tony D.
Updated at 2019-06-14 22:30:14 UTC 

I am interested in buying the Netro Sprite sprinkler. I read several reviews and they are all pretty good. I noticed that many state that the sprite is not able to water two zones at the same time. Is this something limited by project and wanted or do you think it could be upgraded with a software upgrade?

I wanted to ask you some questions about my garden layout. I attach a planimetry for convenience.

The garden consists of two pieces surrounded by railings with a central railing too. The one on the left side is about 70cm lower then the one on the right side.

The two big areas are covered with lawn. At the left side border there are 8 laurus nobilis plants (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurus_nobilis) while at the right side border there are 8 Trachelospermum jasminoides plants (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trachelospermum_jasminoides).

Based on your experience how many zones would you create. At first I thought to go with three zones: one for both lawn plots, one for the laurus and another for the Trachelospermum. My doubt is I need to split the two lawn plots into two separate zones. How would the inability to operate different zones at the same time affect the watering and would the Sprite handle different times automatically or would I need to intervene manually?

My last question is about the Whisperer sensor, how many of them would you place in the garden?

Waiting forward to your suggestions,

Tony

Hi,   

Could you please confirm if the Pixie faucet joint is GHT (garden hose thread) or is it NPT (National Pipe Thread)? 

I'm looking for adapters in Australia to use this unit and its unclear what the size/type the faucet is. 

Thanks!
