Hi!


I have the following problem for several days, whisperer stopped calculating moisture. It shows 0% always, for 3 days already. I have tried to restart it, change its place. Soil is extra wet, but it still shows 0%. Other parameters like sunlight and temeperature are working fine. What should i do?

Which Alexa app?

Updated at 2020-04-16 20:00:55 UTC 

Just got a Pixie. I downloaded both Netro and Netro Home for Alexa. Both work, but should one be disabled? 


The Netro app seems a bit simpler to use (but still clunky). By contrast, Alexa asks if I want to open the Nextro Home app every time I give a command.


Ideally the commands would be simplified, but at least I can get it to work.

Range of whisperer

Updated at 2020-04-16 19:35:32 UTC 

Is there a maximum distance I can place the whisperer(s) in the garden. Largest distance it should cover is approx. 30 mtrs.

The sprite probably will be placed inside.

Daily Wind speed could not be accurate enough to decide if water or not

Luca Manfrin
Updated at 2020-04-16 10:23:31 UTC 

Hello,


When I set up not to water when wind (daily peak) is higher than a certain set value it seems that Netro will not water during all the day even if in many hours that limit value is not reached.


In my idea Netro should not water only during hours in which wind is higher than the limit value.


Look at my location wind forecast for today - from DARKSKY. During the day there is a great variation in wind speed.

 

for example today wind load of 10 km/h is reached only between 12:00 pm and 17:00 pm..then the system could water in differents hours outside that time range


then if i set wind limit at 10 km/h the Netro app should check if during allowed irrigation time range (or programmed) the  hourly speed limit is reached, not the daily wind speed limit. And in case shift the irrigation time to an hour in which hourly wind speed is lower than the limit.


Could be useful to be able to choose between set daily wind peak or hourly wind speed as limit.


thank you

Restriction means exactly..when not to water..but if I want specify the opposite?

Luca Manfrin
Updated at 2020-04-16 07:47:25 UTC 

Hello,


Using restrictions I discovered that I can only specify when NOT TO WATER but in my specific case I want to tell the system to water in between a certain time range.


Then I had to set up a restriction between 00:00 and START TIME

and add an other restriction between END TIME and 23:59


this was very tricky and not flexible.


It would be nice to have (in restriction page) a drop down menu to choose if specified timelapse is to water or not to water. 


Imagine if I want to specify the irrigation days and not the NOT IRRIGATED DAYS..could be very annoying.


I had to specify irrigation time range because I need solar power to irrigate and  I want to irrigate during most productive hours (I know that the best would be irrigate at early morning but also this is a money saving strategy). And probably I have to monthly move that range. 


Then please check if it s possible to upgrade it.


Thank you for your support

Faucet Connector Broke

Larry Griggers
Updated at 2020-04-14 18:49:27 UTC 

I was having difficulty getting a leakproof seal when attaching my Smart Hose Faucet Timer (Pixie-1) to my new faucet. I finally was able to tighten it tight enough not to leak, but after a week, it broke and popped off. It is probably under warranty, but is there somewhere I can buy a new connector and repair it myself?

App Notifications for watering

Brett Lilly
Updated at 2020-04-13 18:42:28 UTC 

Mine is less of a question and more of a request. I would like notifications from the app that tells me when the Sprite has started watering or has skipped a watering. After setting up my Sprite this weekend, it skipped the first watering for low temps, but I had no idea of that. Also, I run my sprinklers in the early morning and it would be much easier to read the notification that it did water than have to go into the app and check it manually. This is the only thing I will miss after switching from a Rachio controller, otherwise it is everything I need.


I understand you don't want to spam us with notifications, but you could add a "Notifications" tab in the settings page where we could choose the notifications we want to receive. I would at least like the choice.

Hi,

I found netro home app in google home and add with my account to my home. When I click on it I can only start and stop netro without control on which zone I want to do this action. I suppose that it will go in order through the zones. Could be possible to add a zone control on this action? 

Thanks for your support.

What's the point option to set the irrigation time at 0 minutes in manual execution? 

It would be more useful a 30 seconds run for testing the valves.

I have accidentally removed one of my devices from the app. 


There is a way to restore it without reset from the controller? in that case i would need to set up all zones again from the beginning.

Programming time vs Restrictions

Luca Manfrin
Updated at 2020-04-07 09:28:22 UTC 

Which is the difference between specify time range into preferences/programming and restrictions rules?


it seems that programming set a run time range to be applied to all zones while restritcions is a more flexible way to set time range and many other rules that can be applied to all or to specific zone. is it correct?


if programming time range is (completely) different (means never overlapped to) from time range set with restriction rules..what happens? not watering at all?
