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 Rose
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?

Weather Provider

Martin Müller-Zantop
Updated at 2019-08-22 10:57:44 UTC 

Can you please explain to me the big difference of the next watering days using different weather providers? As you can see in my print screens the data of temperature and humidity are nearly the same. With one provider next watering cycle will be in 2 days and with another in 11 days.

Thank you for your comments 

Regards 

Martin

Internet connection problems

Topic: General
I have had a lot of trouble with losing netro's connection with internet. My old router failed so I replaced it with an expensive mesh wifi system which provides wonderful service to everything I have tried to connect except my Netro! I have now discovered that it will not work with anything but 2.4 GHz wifi. The new wifi does not provide 2.4 connection. Is there a workaround for this? Or do I have to throw out my new state-of-the-art $400 5 GHz wifi to get my somewhat obsolete $100 Netro to work?

Zones Shut Off But Show Running in App

Kirk Davis
Updated at 2019-08-16 02:54:33 UTC 

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.
