To all Netro customers:


Due to rapid increase of active devices connected to the Netro cloud server, we are going to upgrade our server on May 16th Saturday night from 8:30PM to 9:00PM (Pacific Time). During that time frame, all cloud service will be temporarily unavailable but your watering schedules will run normally. If you have a smart watering controller, the light on the unit will blink fast.


Thanks,

Netro Inc

Is it possible to link an activity such as a scheduled zone watering to switch a specific smart light? I have 6 smart lights in my kitchen and would love if they where linked to my 6 watering zones.

No 2.4GHz wifi

Hi,


My netro has been working fine for the past many months.


Suddenly it stopped working and light blinks.

I try to configure the Wifi again and it states 



I am sure my 2.4 GHz network is available there as I have 2 other devices 10 Cm away from the netro and are working fine at 2.4GHz

I can confirm that in my Orbi Router.


Any ideas ?


Thank you

Carlos

Default rain settings

What is the default setting for not watering the day before and after a rain day? I think it was to skip the day before and of, but not the day after (wish I could reset defaults). Why is the default what it is?


Also, why is the rain delay trigger 0.2? What would happen if I changed it to 0.1?

Smart Watering Adjustment

Tarudro
Updated at 2020-05-11 20:56:22 UTC 

Hi Guys, 


I have some questions, which answers I couldn't completely find in other posts here.


I have installed a Pixie and a whisperer on my balcony. So far it looks quite good, but it still requires some tuning. 

Unfortunately the house is not well designed which resulted in a complained from my neighbours below me about dirty water dripping onto their balcony, quite soon after I installed the new watering system (with irrigation drippers)


Seems like the Pixie is watering too much, so I went into the settings and configured the SmartWatering with Advanced and tweaked the settings such that it resulted in ~1 min watering per day.


My first question: All over the app, 1 min watering seems to be the minimum - is this correct? Is there a plan to enable even shorter cycles?

When the Pixie is watering for two minutes some of my pots are already filled up and start soaking to the neighbors. 

I think a 30 seconds cycle twice a day should even be sufficient for me. However, I couldn't find a way to get below 1 min. Neither with manual, nor with SmartZone.


So, my current solution would be two have 1 minute in the morning and 1 minute in the evening. That should work on dry days. 

However, I've not quite understood yet, when the SmartZone (if set to basic) skips the watering. It's only depending on the weather forecast, right?

When checking the Whisperer settings, I can also select watering to be skipped and added at certain thresholds. At what times are those waterings added? And at what intervals is this repeated? 

E.g. Add watering set for 50% to 1m. Does this mean it adds 1m watering for that day? once? at what time?


Actually I'd very much like to use the SmartWatering Advanced features, but it just waters too much for my small plants on the balcony. I'm not sure, how I can archive a smart watering behavior in the best way, considering that it should water quite often, but optimally less than 1m, because my neighbors don't want to have a dirty and wet balcony all the time ;-)


And yes, I could reduce the dripping amount at the sprinkers, but this also would mean that it's not spread at all and really just dripping. 


Looking forward for some tips or hints,

Kind regards & stay healthy,

Lukas

2 different water sources

Carlos Oliveira
Updated at 2020-05-09 14:51:27 UTC 

Hi,


I have the netro connected to one water source.

Now I am going to install a vertical garden with very low flow and I want the source of water to be a different one from the main source for the garden.


Is there a way I can connect it as an independent solenoide valve that doesn't need to have the master turned on ?


Thank you,

Carlos

Updated at 2020-05-08 07:20:50 UTC 

hello,

 I have a problem with a Whisperer, it turns off, when turned on it detects the data, after an hour it should detect the data again instead it turns off.  I bought 3, the other 2 work perfectly.  I send you photos of zone 6 where the Whisperer is connected.  I did the reconfiguration again but nothing has changed.  I need help.

Thanks

Andrea

What does water your sensor mean?

Got a notification today that tells me to "Water Your Sensor Today".

Does anyone know if I am supposed to pull the sensor out to clean it or just water the surrounding area of the sensor or do I pour water directly on to the sensor's solar battery surface?

When you select the year view you see only 12 months. Instead it would be useful to add 13, so I could compare year over year the same month.

Not only the last 12 months

Whisper Top soil and subsoil sensor reading

Weston Hull
Updated at 2020-05-07 14:52:41 UTC 

Hello,

 Is there a way to use the subsoil reading vs the topsoil reading from the sensor.  For example the top soil reading always reads 100% but the sub soil says 55% which is more believable in Florida's Sandy soil.  The unit did not water for 27 days and still read 99% and sub soil at 20%.  I watered it to see if it would change.  When I take the sensor out of the ground it does change state.
