Ip address

Kris Y
Updated at 2019-09-25 20:13:08 UTC 

You mentioned you would add the ability to display the ip address in the next upgrade. Having dealt with networking issues for many years. I find it best to be able to assign static ip addresses to my home networked devices so I don’t have random dhcp issues causes by laptops or phones reconnecting and trying to take over an IP address that might be in use by a device that is a permanent resident.


Would you add the ability to assign the IP address to the controller? Many people don’t realize the significance of this but I find it important to a healthy home network.

Netro Sprite + Netatmo Rain gauge + Wunderground

Tony D.
Updated at 2019-09-24 21:08:17 UTC 

Hello everybody,

I own a Sprite and a Netatmo weather station. By now I have configured the Netro App to use Wunderground as the meteo provider. More specifically I have configured my own Netatmo Weather station as a provider. I have to say that it works pretty good in forecasting weather conditions. I would like to know if somebody else is using this configuration and owns also the rain gauge module. In case, does provide the correct rain amount of rainfall in the Netro app Discover page. It would be nice if the Netro "AI" could use the exact rainfall from the rain gauge provided through wunderground.


Anyone experimenting with this?

Whisperer seems wrong

Tim Foster
Updated at 2019-09-22 15:02:12 UTC 
Topic: General

I only got my system delivered yesterday, so this could be something that I doing wrong, I have one whisperer in the back garden and one in the front. I live in Merida Yucatan and so it's hot all the time. The whisperer in the back is in direct sunlight most of the day yet it's reporting the temperature as 24. The one in the front is shaded by the house yet that is reporting 33. Both seem to be reporting incorrect moisture levels in both the topsoil and subsoil. Yucatán drains through stone to underground water sources so I would expect both topsoil and subsoil to be showing very arid.


Can anyone advise?

Schedule setup

Rich Christenson
Updated at 2019-09-21 14:51:31 UTC 

I’ve setup several schedules and in creating another new one, I run into errors about a schedule conflict.  I’ve disabled the other schedule so it won’t run but even then I get the error.


I would think that the app would be smart enough to not create a schedule conflict with a disabled schedule?

Having a problem since upgrade of the app. Doesn't seem possible unless the main unit updated as well. Valves close within a few minutes of being activated by manual start, or programmed schedule. Have not test with smart watering disabled, but it happens on manual starts, so not sure that is even a variable. The Zone still shows as actively watering in the application. If you submit a stop  action by pressing the red square,then restart, via the sideways triangle, the zone will come back on again. However, it shortly shuts back off, while still showing the zone as being actively watered. This is happening across all four of my zones. Curiously, if you unplug the controller after the valve shuts off, but the app still shows it watering, wait a bit, and then plugit back int-the zone comes backon shortly after reboot.

Tested countless times, hasn't finished a cycle in a month. The zone stops sending the 24v signal causing the pump relay to snap shut and turn off the water supply, or perhaps the zone valve. Either way, appears to be a very odd defect. Do I need a replacement unit?  (BTW, I have all smart fumctioms disabled)

Netro has updated max day regulation

Netro Support
Updated at 2019-12-25 01:46:02 UTC 

To the Netro Community,


Recently Netro has enabled the max day Restriction in Settings->Regulation for those cities which limit watering to one or two days per week. We are aware that many cities are under mandatory regulation and the penalty for violating the water regulations is large, therefore, we have enabled the max day regulation.

Users can go to Settings->Regulations to check and please feel free to report us if the regulation is incorrect.

For some local regulations, we are not quite sure if it is conservation plan or mandatory regulation. If the regulation is not needed, please write to us support@netrohome.com and we will check and update our regulation database accordingly.


Thanks,
Netro Support

I wasn't able to find a way to read the IP address assigned to the Sprite and/or Whisperer could you consider adding a page in the app where you can read the value?

Thank you,

Tony

Whisperer not working as expected

Tony D.
Updated at 2019-09-09 12:57:04 UTC 

I've been using my sprite with a Whisperer since a few months. The sprite works wonderfully but the whisperer has serious probloms. I get incorrect readings. Specifically my whisperer is stating 1% topsoil moisture level. Honestly this is impossible after a sprinkling succeded at 6:00 this morning. This misbehaving is going on since the first week. It works for the first day or two after resetting the whisperer but then it goes weird. On other occasions instead the topsoil moisture was stuck at 98% even after several days of not sprinling in full summer with temperatures over 35°. 

I have tried anything from resetting the whisperer to changing spot. At this point I'm led to think that the whisperer is broken.

Is anybody else having this strange behavior?

Do you have any other suggestion to solve this problem?


I have noticed that you are not giving due importance on support requests in this forum about whisperer problems. In my opinion you should put more effort into this.

New Whisper not reporting

Derrick
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.

watering sequence

Gérard GALBOIS
Updated at 2019-08-26 18:23:46 UTC 

It is unfortunatly not possible to change  in which ordre the watering will act.

for exemple I need to water zone 5 after zone 7 because zone 7 is at a higher level than the electro valve and remaining water pressure, after watering is stopped,  is to strong and prevents the valve to close . by watering supplemantary  zone 5 which is lower the pressure diminishes ans the valve of zone 7 closes..

How does a whisper sensor work with a drip system?

L F
Updated at 2019-08-25 23:46:33 UTC 
I have a couple whisper sensors monitoring my lawn and drip system.   I understand how they can monitor the soil in my lawn but I’m wonder how the whisper works on my drip system as it doesn’t see the moisture that’s added to the soil(the emitter isolates the water to the plant) or the rate the plants use it like the one in the lawn does.  I’m assuming it’s just estimating like the Netro would on it’s own.  Is there much value to using a whisper on a drip zone?
