Whisper Sensor

Updated at 2022-04-26 02:55:10 UTC 

I've had the whisper sensor for about a year and it's worked great the entire time. I decided to add 2 more sensors for more zones and both of them are reporting absurd numbers more often than not. I have tried resetting them, moving them, nothing is working. Really not happy right now. Attached is a screenshot of a typical day's readings.

Smart Watering - Water in the Morning

Netro Support
Updated at 2022-04-24 01:45:07 UTC 



Watering correctly saves time, money, and plants. The heat of summer is coming, and along with it, water restrictions in many municipalities. Summer water restrictions can force us to re-evaluate our watering practices. In many cases we may find that our watering practices are wasteful and inefficient.

Deep, infrequent watering is recommended. In most cases, an inch of water per week (rain plus irrigation) should be sufficient. Applying that inch of water in one deep watering will encourage deeper rooting, which leads to stronger, healthier plants. Watering once a week also fits well into most municipal water restrictions. Shallow, frequent watering, on the other hand, will lead to shallow root systems and high water loss through evaporation. With shallow watering, such as light frequent sprinkling, you actually end up wasting quite a bit of water and still don’t meet the needs of your plants.

The best time of day to water a garden is in the morning, since that gives the plants time to dry off before nightfall. It's cooler and winds tend to be calmer so water can soak into the soil and be absorbed by the grass roots before it can evaporate.Leaving water on plants overnight can lead to mold. Watering your garden at the right time and using the right method will keep your plants healthy.

There may be need to evaluate the device used for watering. While a lawn sprinkler may be a good method for the lawn, it may not be the best way to water a vegetable garden. Pick a watering device that matches the needs of your garden and the time you have available to water. Once a device is selected, know the correct way to use that device, in order to water efficiently.

When faced with summer watering restrictions, save yourself time and money by carefully selecting the time and watering device which best suit your garden’s needs. With Netro's smart watering, home gardeners may not fear that with restrictions in place they won't be able to properly water their gardens. Netro specializes in Evapotranspiration Reduction (ETR) and automatically make seasonal watering adjustments. Even in the hottest summer, Netro takes good care of your garden.

If you must water in the evening, try between 4 and 6 p.m. which should give the grass blades time to dry before nightfall. The later you water, the greater chance of disease becoming prevalent in your lawn. It's worth noting, though, that you don't necessarily have to water your lawn. Lawns are resilient. Established and properly cared-for lawns can survive weeks without water by going dormant (when the lawn turns brown), then recover once the rain returns.

Cannot remove a tree from my zone #2

Davide M.
Updated at 2022-04-20 09:23:18 UTC 

Good day all,

in my zone #2 I set up a Magnolia tree.


If I remove the tree and set up lawn, the app apparently does it, but when I come back to check,  it mixes things up:


This seems to happen only with zone #2: how can I fix it and get rid of the Magnolia tree in this zone ? Does it affect my watering calendar ?

Thanks for help.


Davide


EDIT: wrong zone ID, correct is Zone #2

Hi all,

is there any way to force the app to use ENG language ? The ITA translation is sometimes really bad and puzzling...  

I can volunteer to tune up the translation if needed.

Best Regards,

Netro lose wifi connection

Rob Rossi
Updated at 2022-04-19 09:22:12 UTC 
Hi,
I have a problem with the control unit, every few days I lose the connection to the Wifi.

If I restart the router,

Netro remains disconnected (blinks), I must necessarily turn off Netro and turn it back on to be able to reconnect it to the router.

This is a problem because if I'm away from home, I can't do it.

how can it be solved?

It would be nice to assign the wire color for each zone in the app.  Doesn’t need to be prominent but maybe on the setting > zones screen.

Zone Size Setting With Overlapping Sprinklers

Dsohunter
Updated at 2022-04-13 14:39:27 UTC 

Hi,


How do I set zone size for lawn areas sprinklers that overlap one and other?  For example, I have 6 zones, and in the front Zone 1 and Zone 2 overlap the areas they water in some cases.  So, in my case if the area covered by both zones is a total of 1000 feet, do I set each zone for 500 feet or each zone for 1000 feet.  Thanks.
