Does netro have a program for new grass seed?  I'm going to oversees later this month and was wondering how to set my sprinklers to get the seed to grow.

I have 2 Netro controllers named Front Yard and Back Yard. Alexa can water the Back Yard just fine by specifying a zone and a time to water for. But how do I switch controllers so Alexa will water zones on the Front Yard controller?

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!

Redwood pine tree

Updated at 2018-08-08 18:32:32 UTC 

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

Two zones on same spot

Ken Wiens
Updated at 2018-07-31 22:06:08 UTC 

I have 4 zones. Two of these cover the same piece of ground. One zone has pgm sprayers and the other zone has regular sprayers .But they cover exactly the same area. How do I tell the app this so that it knows that running the sprinklers for one zone waters the same trees and grass as the other zone? 


To try and clarify the question - these zones cover the same physical piece of ground, (they overlap 100%) but netro doesn't know that, so it will water one zone and think the other zone is still in need of watering - and thus water the same grass twice. (each zone once so the same grass twice).  Netro's algorithm for determining soil moisture levels can't work if it doesn't realize these two zones are the same physical piece of grass.

Accuracy of dark sky in Canada

Ken Wiens
Updated at 2018-07-31 03:16:54 UTC 

The dark sky android app is not available in Canada  so I wonder how accurate their weather is here.  To try and determine this for myself, I looked at the netro temperature graph..  Today it is 34C at my house  but the temperature summary graph in  Netro says it is only 22C. (for my friends still using Fahrenheit that is about a 24F difference )  Does anyone know when Netro gets the temperature that it uses in the graph? Other thoughts on dark sky accuracy in Canada?

Netro and Alexa

Ken Wiens
Updated at 2018-07-30 22:29:36 UTC 

I've loaded the Alexa skill for Netro. When I tell Alexa to ask Netro to water a zone, it just looks up references for "metro" instead. Much as I appreciate Alexa looking up train schedules for me, I'm curious if others have had this problem.  I've tried pronouncing  it "net row" and "neat row" but  neither gets recognized. 


This isn't a critical issue, as I'm not sure I would ever see the point in voice control over my sprinklers  but thought I would set it up to try anyway

Same Zone Settings, Different Results

bmcginni
Updated at 2018-07-14 11:23:00 UTC 

Hello - I have a 9 zone system. I have set all of the zones with the exact same settings for type, grass, etc. I do not have any sensors. 

However, the app shows the zones having different moisture levels, and waters certain zones differently than others, even though the settings and system location are the exact same. 

Can you help me understand why the system would treat these identically programmed zones differently

Thanks!

Smart vs. manual program

Mike Bujor
Updated at 2018-07-13 22:36:12 UTC 

Hi just wanted to know if I running only customs programs for watering I can take advantage of the Smart Watering feature. In other words, I only have my own watering program, NO smart programs, and need to know if the controller will skip these programs when raining. If NOT will the sensor allow provide that feature?

Thx - Mike

Never waters lawn

Mossy Bank
Updated at 2018-07-12 01:52:11 UTC 
I have had the netro for a  week and it has yet to water the lawn. Today, it states 12 more days until the next water. I have Bermuda grass in Alabama, it is 90+ degrees daily. Seems like it will never water. It has only rained for 5 minutes the last week, but the app thinks it has rained more often.
