Water turned off

Ken Laberteaux
Updated at 2020-07-31 01:08:39 UTC 

I had to turn off my water valve to my sprinkler system for a week (ending in a few days) and forgot to disable smart watering on my netro.  Netro thinks it did a complete watering last Saturday, and adjusted estimated soil moisture accordingly.  Netro isn't planning another watering for another 9-10 days.  However no watering last Saturday occurred.  


How best should I handle this?  Is there a way to delete past watering, which will lower soil estimated moisture, triggering a sooner watering than currently scheduled?  Or should I just do a manual long watering as soon as I can?

Smart scheduling problem with sensor watering adjustment configuration

Alfonso Olias Sanz
Updated at 2020-07-28 05:32:10 UTC 

I have an issue/conflict  with the watering adjustments for the sensors and the Smart Zone Sheduling

I have seen something weird. 



  • I Have set up the Watering Adjustment for sensors the following I describe o be sure about the problem
  • Moisture to Skip watering 50%
  • Moisture to Add watering 30%
  • Duration 5 minutes (only) -- it is a check
  • The Smart Zones are st up the following
  • Smart Zone - enabled
  • Mode - regular


The watering run today only 5 minutes, when the smart  schedule  defined by the system was above that. As you can see, tomorrow watering says different time runs per zone, but it will run a maximum of 5 minutes. This means that the sensor configuration overrides the Smart Zone. And it should not.

As far as I understand the Watering adjustemt is to add EXTRA watering when needed based on the moisture level. Attached picture


Prior to this setup I had the Duration for Watering Adjustment for 15  and 10 minutes, and you can see in the past days runs, that always run for 15 -10 minutes depending the zone/sensor. - Attached picture

In previous weeks, it was working fine and adding extra watering when need it to keep the moisture levels.

Any idea?


I DID THE CHANGES PROPOSED BY NETRO  and it is not working

Take a look the screen shots



Zones 3,4,5 it is below the 30% trigger

I'm not understanding how "estimated frequency and duration" works...

Ciao.

Just installed Netro Sprite.

I enjoyed to set up the zones with advanced Smart watering, but I'm not confident with what is reported in "estimated frequency and duration". The frequency showed in the setting page seems too long (e.g. every 6 days)... but, if I see what is scheduled in the calendar it seems much closer to my expectation (e.g. every 2 days).   How daoes it work??


Thanks

Does Netro whisperer underestimate moisture?

Rick Agrawal
Updated at 2020-07-16 19:12:17 UTC 
I added a whisperer to one of our zones. Recently the moisture content was between 25-30%. We are having a hot summer with many days with 110 degrees. I believed it and watered for good 15-20 minutes. It turned out despite all those water the soil moisture went up to 45-50%. I went and checked again, the soil looks pretty good and appeared moist. 

Just curious if the whisperer tends to underestimate moisture?

Hi, I have a Hozelock Micro Irrigation system with multiple Universal Drippers that supply 40 Litre per hour. I would welcome any advice on the best way to set up the app, for a Netro Pixie and this setup. Should Smart Zone be used on basic or auto with user fixed schedules.  Any advice welcomed from experienced Nitro users on the best way to use my new Netro device. Thanks.

Question about smart watering durations

sw238
Updated at 2020-07-05 15:42:38 UTC 

Hey, I'm a techie and I have a question about your "smart watering". What is the feedback loop that you use?


My zones are vastly different -- some have very small spray heads, and some have very large rotors that pump out a lot of water. At first glance, I cannot see any way to (a) indicate how much water is delivered per zone or (b) indicate how moist the soil actually is.


Assuming that I have not missed anything, I have a few suggestions:

  1. Provide a mechanism for indicating the water deliver rate for each zone
  2. Provide a mechanism for manually imputing the actual, measured moisture of the soil
  3. Provide a "hint" mechanism for each gone (e.g. "This zone is too dry" / "this zone is too wet") which would in tyrn influence the smart watering.

Advanced smart watering not working

Michael Fortwengler
Updated at 2020-07-04 19:06:14 UTC 
I have advanced watering set up and it shows that it will water every six days for an hour broken into 10 minute segments. However, in reality, it only waters for 10 minutes and then shifts the schedule to the next day. It never waters more than 10 minutes even though the schedule says it will total an hour. My moisture levels always stay low in the 50% range and never automatically go to 100% unless I force a manual watering. This is very frustrating.

Not watering nearly often enough.

Rob and Susan Tartre
Updated at 2020-06-24 20:13:25 UTC 

I need the Netro system to water every day in this hot, dry climate. Our lawn is turning brown. It’s used to being watered every day. The smart watering system is watering every 4 days. I have both the frequency set to high and the moisture levels set to high. I do not have sensors. What else can I adjust to get it to run every day. I’m trying to figure out how to choose everyday using the smart system. Do I just need to set manual program? That kind of defeats the purpose of having smart watering (adjusting for rain, etc.)

Thank you for any help!!

Certificate Expired?

Robohead
Updated at 2020-06-19 20:03:10 UTC 
My Netro app on my phone and iPad will not let me sign in today. Instead, it shows an error message saying the Netro website certificate has expired and it’s dangerous to login. This is concerning because I did not know that if the website is down, I do not have any control over watering my lawn. None. Is there a way to get around this or do I need to return my sprite 6 smart water controller?

Whisperer plus basic smart watering

Andy Black
Updated at 2020-06-15 21:10:38 UTC 

Hi,


If you are using the “basic” smart watering mode, is Whisperer data considered to turn off a watering schedule similar to what is done with the weather forecast?


Thanks,

Smart zone when temperature change

Junglim Huh
Updated at 2020-06-14 12:28:36 UTC 

Does smart zone adjust water time depending on temperature change?

For instance, does smart zone automatically adjust to water more for those days over 90 degrees and water less for cooler days?

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!

Thanks for IFTTT

Joe Ryan
Updated at 2020-06-07 22:38:39 UTC 

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.
