How can I give my landscaper a way to manage the watering cycles?

Joshua Berk
Updated at 2018-10-10 06:22:09 UTC 
I would like to be able to share this account with my wife and my landscaper so they have access to turn things on and off when needed. Especially when I'm going to have my landscaper do work on my sprinkler system to fix the heads he needs to be able to test it easily without me being there.

New seeding

Douglas Ely
Updated at 2018-10-09 23:09:48 UTC 
Here in ocean city NJ, when we seed for new grass we need the water to come on twice daily to start germination. When I set my Netro to “new plant” and the soil type to “sandy clay” which is the top layer, the controller had only been watering every 2.21 days. The soil is dust dry. I don’t want to have to make gross adjustments. That is why I bought Netro. What’s wrong?

The app crashes on android phone (S8) when attempting to set rain preferences. This is annoying. None of my messages regarding this have been answered by tech support. Perhaps I should return the device and get a Rachio?

New grass seed

Updated at 2018-09-09 21:47:24 UTC 
It would be great to have a feature that runs the sprinklers three times a day for 7 days when I put down new grass seed. I can build a program for this and it does not take very long. It would be a nice feature to have this built into the app.

California Native Plants

Anthony M
Updated at 2018-08-08 22:15:43 UTC 
It would be nice if more California native style plants (dry climate) were included in the database - or at least that sort of watering style (much less frequent/deep) be available as an option.  I find that when relying on the smart watering with generic salvia hybrid selected for plant type, the water usage is actually higher than the manual program i had set before, especially now in summer months I feel it might be overcompensating.  I'd like to be able to rely on the "smart" aspects, but not sure it makes sense given the higher water usage so for now will probably be forced to go back to manual programming instead.. If anyone has some experience/suggestions on matching these types of plants up with what is in the database I'm all ears as well.  Thanks!

Hello. I'm setting a zone in where i have to water Redwood pine trees. I was looking for them under the species/type. I can't find it. I tried different names, species, etc. I believe it's not available yet.


Please, could you help me with:


Letting me know which tree available within the app will be more suitable to cover Redwood pine tree needs

Updating, if it is possible, the trees list available in the app


Thanks in advance.

Rain vs moisture

OhYes Dinh
Updated at 2018-08-06 01:15:02 UTC 

Hello, 


Wonder why the soil moisture doesn't change to 100% after a big rain in my area?  The soil moisture percentage is important since this might trigger the auto watering (water will kick in when the max moisture setting is greater than the actual moisture  percentage)


Thanks
