How do I access my sprinkler controller with a web browser?

I just bought a Netro Sprite based on the description and reviews on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XCRZWMN/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

One of the main selling points for me was one of the bullet points in the description:

"Lifetime Cloud Service - Connects to WiFi(2.4G), monitors and controls your sprinkler system anywhere from iOS(8.3+), Android(5.0+) devices and Web browsers"

I tried looking up its IP address on my router, but that fails to connect. How does one access this controller using a "web browser"?

This feature is very important to me.

Buggy system or bad communication

I am using a netro spark for a 12 zone setup. Outside of the rough UI app experience, I am continuously seeing odd behavior in my physical irrigation system. I recently had new hydroseed installed and have the netro controller setup to run at 4 different times during the day. Typically 75% of the time things work as expected, then the other 25% of the time, my app displays "loading" for a full minute before the zone is turned on and other times the zone will turn on, then immediately turn off, or only run for less then half of the scheduled time. 

This is becoming quite frustrating as I cant trust this system for what its intended to do.

Outside of this issue, I have already been able to replicate two different scenarios that I would consider to be bugs. 

Really hoping someone can assist with this because I'm tempted to switch controllers for a more confident system.


Let me add, I just turned a single zone on manually at the controller with the same results. Set controller to run a zone for 4 minutes, zone turned on, then turned off after 1minute.


Wifi at my controller is 10.2 Mbps download and 13.1Mbps upload which is more then sufficient for MQTT as well as on a channel that has very minimal collision.

2 controllers with one water supply

I have 2 12 zone sprites installed and bothe are working correctly.   Is there a way to combine them some how to keep from having two zones (1 per controller ) from coming on at the same time? 

Also just planted two acres of sod and wondering if there is a preset schedule or any advice there?

bad wireless?

Hello,

I'm including a screen shot of the Netro app controlling a Sprite 12 in my home. The Sprite has very good wi-fi access. I understand from a support comment what the icons mean:

 The exclamation mark means the cloud server did not receive the confirmation from the device. There are two possible causes: 

1. the device is not powered up when it was supposed to be powered up to run that schedule. Therefore, the corresponding zone is not watered (what is why we use the exclamation to alert users) 

2. the schedule run fine but it was during a temporary network outage or exception so that the confirmation cannot be delivered to the server. Wireless connection can be unstable for a short peroid time so it is not uncommon to have a glitch in the communication. 


This is happening a lot (I'm getting more warnings than checkmarks) and I believe it's adding to the water usage. If this is a wireless connection issue (which I SERIOUSLY doubt) wouldn't the Sprite store the result and upload it the next time it has a cloud connection?  It seems that every time I get the schedule warning, the Smart Zone systems adds additional watering times to the schedule. There is nothing I can do to increase the wi-fi access at this location as it's already very close to the access point. Please let me know what can be done.

"MQTT(port 1883) is blocked by the router"

Updated at 2021-05-19 16:45:52 UTC 

Looking at the about screen on the app (on my phone), I click on the "Check Server Status" and I get the following message:

"MQTT(port 1883) is blocked by the router"


This device is on a separate IoT network that has full, unrestricted outbound access to the Internet. What could be causing this? 


Edit:

The app on my tablet shows:

Server Status:    OK

Response time:  0.3 s


Is something being blocked on my phone?

Whisperer connexion

Just received your goods. Had no problem connecting the Spark unit but cannot connect the whisperer.

When reaching the Wifi template it is stuck to the Netro_PLS_xxx and cannot move to MyhomeWifi.

Of course have no access to Netro..... and in any case do not have the password.

The installation manual says it will connect to the router. Unhappily looking to the router I see clearly the Spark but nothing else

I just installed the unit, set up the program properly? And try it out all the zones. All I wanted to do was test them to make sure they were working. But how do I turn off the water if I just want to test it for a minute?

Hello everyone,

Checking with the Netro app, I see that my Sprite has firmware version 2.2.0, while I think I read in the forum that there is version 2.5.3.
How can I force the update?

Thanks

Netro app discover tab

Hi

I’m a new user to the Netro App. 

Can anyone please tell me what the discover tab is for?

What does the “irrigation” section mean? I thought it tells me how much water has flowed through my smart hose. But the number doesn’t seem to match. It’s way higher than what the actual number should be.

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

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
