Hi!

I have many zones and I want some of them to work simultaneously, not consequently. Hot to setup the app?

Why or how does the rain delay option work?

Mine is set up with the minimum rain but the program still goes off no matter what. 

My B-hyve sends me a “rain delay” message.

Multiple Zones share readings from 1 Whisperer?

JDWalburg
Updated at 2020-06-08 15:26:52 UTC 

I have a whisperer in one of my zones connected perfectly. I have a large back yard, so 3 of my zones are essentially the same. No difference zone-to-zone on the sunlight, slope, grass type, soil type, etc...


Can I have multiple zones use that one whisperer for data? I like the soil moisture readings from the sensor (currently sensor zone shows 33% moisture but the other two zones without the whisperer show 65% moisture).


Thank you!

User Guide - Manual watering with your Pixie timer

Netro Inc
Updated at 2020-06-22 07:37:55 UTC 

The Pixie timer is designed for automatic watering. However, occasionally you may still need to turn on/off the water manually. Before explaining manual watering from the app, it would be helpful to understand how the Pixie communicates with the Netro cloud server.


By default, your Pixie turns on its WiFi module once every hour to sync up with the server. The sync-up usually takes less than one minute. For the next 59 minutes the timer will be sleeping and disconnected from the WiFi until the next sync. When the timer is sleeping, it is unaware of the schedule changes, including the manual watering.


Therefore, when you start a manual run, the timer is most likely in sleep mode. It will have to wait until the next sync-up to start the watering. The waiting time will be less than 60 minutes. Take the following screenshot for example:



The current time is 5:24AM and the next sync is scheduled at 6:17AM. Therefore the waiting time is going to be 53 minutes. After you press the Start button, you can go to the Schedule page and the manual run at  6:17AM will appear on your calendar.

Thanks for IFTTT

I notice that the IFTTT apps are pre canned. I have 3 whisperers and would like to control 3 different zones. I got around this by choosing a to water when moisture fell below 40% and 50% for 2 different zones. I there a way to trigger 3 different zones at the same 40% moisture?

Again Thanks for your efforts.

A way to dial it down

esassone
Updated at 2020-06-07 01:51:41 UTC 
Last summer I used Smart Zone Regular mode.  It did a great job but it watered somewhat more than I would have liked.  I checked all the other mode settings and outside of ECO which looked to cut it in half I didn't see any mode that would do what I am looking for.  For customized I didn't see a clear way to have it water say 20% less than Regular mode.  Is there a straightforward ways to do this?   Seems like a nice feature would be to be able to adjust a mode up or down in say 5% increments or so.  That way we would have all Smart Zone Advanced benefits without having to do a lot of manual customization.   thanks

When I turn on manually by pressing two times it’s fine. However the water turns off automatically after a minute or two. Is this right?  How do I get it to stay on longer so I can shut it off manually 

Also should the LED stay on all the time?

Notes section per zone

Simon Clark
Updated at 2020-06-04 07:13:33 UTC 

Hi, 

Could we get a notes section in the zone setup so we can record extra information about the zone.  it could be wire colouring for install, notes about other setup / sprinkler install information or general notes about how that zone is performing and changes we might want to make.  

Thanks

Watering metrics question

Egan
Updated at 2020-06-03 16:09:22 UTC 

I am new to gardening and traditionally, I can kill a plastic plant.  I have started a small flower bed with 3 rose plants in it.  

Is there a way to read the information in the app to learn how many gallons have been given to the plants in a given period of time?

My simplistic understanding of the rose plants is they should get 3 gallons a week total.  My current moisture % in the app shows 68.  Do i need to focus on getting that and keeping it at 100%?

Thanks ahead of time for any education you offer.

Missing Whisperer

Updated at 2020-05-29 18:11:36 UTC 
This season when I put my whisperer back out to monitor my garden bed I looked on the app and no longer saw that device. So I went through the process to re-add it to my network and my Netro account and I get an error message stating that that serial number is already registered.  Anyone have any thoughts on how I can de-register and re-register this device?  Thanks
