Dark mode/ font update?

Kirk Davis
Updated at 2022-08-03 13:48:59 UTC 
Hoping to find out if dark mode and more legible fonts for the light gray in the interface will be more noticeable at some point. Hey this is the only app I have difficulty reading a font that size. Can you at least make it black instead of super light gray? Seems like a pretty quick change. Dark mode I’m sure is more difficult, so an interim step would be appreciated. Any idea when the next release will be out?

Whisperer should correct sprite inaccuracies

Douglas Ely
Updated at 2022-08-02 10:30:54 UTC 
I have areas of the lawn that are consistently brown during the summer. I bought a whisperer to tell sprite to correct itself but it doesnt seem to do that. If the soil moisture that is estimated by the Netro app is incorrect, why doesnt the whisperer update the algorithm? Example: I have tried to set the soil moisture to 80% low to 100% high.  The grass on the customers property is brown and they are not happy. When I check the app, The whisperer says that the soil moisture is 63% but the app says that the next watering is scheduled for 22 hours? It also needs to be able to keep a greatly increased watering schedule until it corrects the problem. It is getting hard to work with this.

Consistently underwatering

Douglas Ely
Updated at 2022-08-02 10:14:34 UTC 
The app seems to work fine when there is natural rainfall and the lawns look green. When the stress of the summer arrives, the customers ALWAYS complain that there is not enough water on some zones. The boost feature is not sufficient. there needs to be a way for us to increase the amount of water that is applied without having to make a manual schedule. That would defeat the purpose of using Netro. There needs to be a way for the user to correct the algorithm. The app will say that there should be 80% soil moisture but when I use a moisture meter and take a direct reading the moisture is around 30%.

Severe water restrictions

In California we are experiencing drought conditions.  I need to cut back the amount of water I use on my gardens.  I want to use you Smart Zone feature, and I want to describe my gardens accurately (shade, soil, sprinkler type …).  I know I can use the ECO setting, or I can say it is shadier than it actually is but I would prefer to use correct settings and the say “use 75% or 50% of recommended water.  That would be a helpful improvement for to your app.

Wrong scheduling?

Carlos Jimeno
Updated at 2022-07-30 07:49:09 UTC 

Hi. 


I've got my Netro Sprite with 10 zones configured. All of them with the smart watering feature. And 8 of them with he ECO program. It seems that my unit is overwatering. When I check the calendar most of the zones are watered twice and if I skip some of the zones both events dissapear and the whole time is filled with more instances is the non slipped zones. 



I've configured the watering time from 7:00 to 9:00 and some days it covers the whole time and others it covers from 6:00 to 9:00. 


Any ideas to solve it?. 


Thank you very much.

How do I add an additional "manager" or "player" - app & website keep giving an error

Alex Heath
Updated at 2022-07-28 17:46:04 UTC 

Just got the new Spark 16 sprinkler controller and installed it yesterday.  I'm trying to add "New Manager" in the app (& tried it on the website too), but keep getting this error message:  "ERROR:  Can't find user [email]"   (I've omitted the specific email address of the manager/player I'm trying to add and simply used [email] as a placeholder for this thread)

I've also tried to add "New Player" and get the same error message.  


Has anyone else had this issue?  Am I doing it wrong?

Hi,

Can I ask how long you plan to support the present Pixie and accessories now that the super-dooper new zig bee version is being released? I believe that there is a 10 year legal obligation in the EU for new designs and what’s the news on compatibility with the original units?

Limit irrigation duration of a specific zone, water run off issues

Kyle Giacomini
Updated at 2022-07-26 05:14:15 UTC 

Hi there, 

I'm currently using the smart watering feature on all my zones. However, I have a few zones with turf that are on a slope. It seems like the smart watering feature uses long duration watering sets (more than 25 minutes) that's causing unwanted runoff. Also, since I'm on a well, the longer irrigation sets really taxes my water pressure. My pressure drops after 13 minutes or so making the spray pattern uneavenly distributed with less water and also changing the application rates. Having shorter duration irrigation would help my well recharge and maintain pressure during the irrigation.  Is there a way to minimize the duration or set a max duration irrigation setting for a group of zones so I don't continue sending water down the road? Ideally, having many shorter sets rather than one long set would be helpful, a cycle and soak approach. Thank you!

I am a Rachio guy but love the sensors by Netro. I’m trying to figure out how to set my watering recommendations from Netro with Rachio. What I’m lacking is ability to set my zones up and amount of water flow from different head types. How can I do this with Netro?

Erroneous "smart" scheduling

Jay Fahar
Updated at 2022-07-25 18:57:45 UTC 

I cannot "Edit" an existing schedule!? I wish I didn't have to delete my account and start the installation all over again!!! 

And after putting the new schedule data, the programming went bezerk! I've capture the weirdest program that was injected by Netro, not me!  

I've taken the snap shots of the wired vs good program off of my screen, but cannot share these images here!?

Where can I get an operator's manual??

Mario Brusasco
Updated at 2022-07-25 13:56:44 UTC 

I have just installed a 12 zone Sprite controller and am definitely not impressed.  Over waters, in my experience.  So I've turned off the fully autonomous "smart" part and am trying to set up "basic" watering schedules like the old days.


I have been installing residential sprinkler systems since the 1970s and this little controller has me flummoxed.


What would help is a detailed operator's manual to help explain icons and features.  I've looked for one online and to no avail, can't find anything.


Here's one for example...  I want to remotely turn on one zone for a set amount of time, either for testing or additional watering.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

App help to program to not water if it rained

Updated at 2022-07-23 12:38:33 UTC 

Hey All!

I have a Netro sprite. I want to water my grass everyday unless it rained or is going to rain. It rained something crazy last night and yet it still watered this morning. What am I missing? 


Also I hit rain delay earlier and hit done showing a 5 day delay, how do I change that once I hit it. It still shows the next watering is in 5 days. 


I’m pretty good with computers and apps but this one isn’t easy for me to wrap my head around. Things just don’t seem to be easy to make things happen. IMHO! 


Thanks.
