I have a company doing service on my sprinkler system, and would like to have them able to turn zones on/off to verify coverage and do repairs. Does anyone know how can that be done without me giving them my phone?

Hello!  I just got a whisper and wanted to add it to a stand-alone zone but keep getting the following error: Error no info about this zip code in our DB. Any thoughts?  I can add it to one of my other zones?  


Thanks.

Weather Company API- Revenue stream for Netro

Kirk Davis
Updated at 2019-04-20 12:58:20 UTC 
Topic: General
It is my understanding that you could restore our ability to pull data into netro from our individual weather stations. This would require paying for the API, which you could mark up 20% and offer a paid option to netro clients. $3.99 a year, for example, would be totally worth it to get accurate information to my sprinkler controller. As I have outlined in a previous post, dark sky has proven to be wildly inaccurate. It's Miss estimates rainfall by at least 50%, on average, and is within three degrees plus or minus on high temperature only about 50% of the time.

Irritating - Dark Sky is junk.

Kirk Davis
Updated at 2019-04-20 12:21:46 UTC 

Why can't I see the assumption Netro is making on the amount of rain that fell the day before? I paid Dark Sky for the time machine feature, but it's never accurate Yesterday  it rained here over an inch (rain gauge and $250 weather station agreed)  Dark Sky time machine (no, not Hot Tub time machine) reported  25 inch. At the very least I should be able to go into the app and put the actual rain that fell for the day before. Is there a way to do it, and if not, will you please add it? I would get a Whisperer, but the feedback has been rather poor on here. 


The community is nice, but how am I supposed to see answers? It shows "Answers 2", for example, but you click in it, and noting happens. Irritating 


Thanks,

Suggestion: Sunrise smart watering

Mark S
Updated at 2019-04-15 13:39:43 UTC 
I think Rachio adjusts the watering schedule with sunrise to have all zones completed as the sun is coming up. Is this something you intend to add? I think this will come in handy with the heat of summer.

Smart Watering Basic with a schedule watering adjustment

Barry Perfect
Updated at 2019-04-13 17:00:37 UTC 

If I have a zone set to Smart Watering - Basic with a schedule to come on for 30 minutes, will the smart watering adjust the duration of the watering based on the weather (say 10 minutes when it’s cool, the full 30 minutes when it is hot), or just turn it off/on based on the 5mm expected rain threshold?

windy conditions

Magnus Swenson
Updated at 2019-03-27 20:05:53 UTC 

The setting for windy conditions is great.

However the zones that includes drip irrigation doesn’t get impacted by winds (since they’re often under dirt/mulch etc) usually rotors and nozzles would be impacted . Is there a way not to include in ground drip irrigation on windy conditions?

Update frequency of watering schedule

How often is the smart watering schedule updated? This morning it was raining quite a bit, but so far my watering schedule indicates a watering session for tomorrow. Not only does this waste water, but it violates one of my restrictions, namely, no watering the day after a rain.

Instructions about Replacing Hunter System

Netro Support
Updated at 2019-03-20 08:08:36 UTC 

Replacing Hunter system


This page lists some instructions about replacing the common types of Hunter system with Netro smart watering controller. 


Example 1:


To replace this controller with Netro smart watering controller, please follow the instructions.

The white wires are the common wires which should be connected to the C slots in Netro. Then the zone wires (1,2,3, .. 12) are directly mapped to the 1, 2, 3 .. 12 slots in Netro. The last step is to connect the power (the ground wire is not needed for Netro) then you should be good to go. The power adapter wires are the 2 yellow wires on the left side.

The green one below the yellow wires is the ground wire which is not needed for Netro.

The copper wires are rains sensors which are not needed for Netro either because Netro gets the weather information from WiFi network.


Example 2:

For this system, please connect the white wire to any one of the C slots in Netro. You can leave the M slot of Netro smart watering controller and one of the C slot unconnected.

The last step is to connect the power. The power adapter wires are the 2 yellow wires on the left side.

SEN are rains sensors which are not needed for Netro either because Netro gets the weather information from WiFi network.


Example 3:


Please connect the white wire to any one of the C slots in Netro. You can leave one of the C slot unconnected.

This system has 3 wires which connects to 24v lines. To replace it with Netro smart watering controller, you can use the existing 24V power(the yellow wires) for your Sprite. It looks like the thinner 2 are the ones but you might just want to try them on Sprite. Or you can use a voltage meter to determine.

If the thinner yellow wires turn out to be the power, than I think the thinner white wire is the common wire which should go to the C slot in Sprite.

SEN are rains sensors which are not needed for Netro either because Netro gets the weather information from WiFi network.

Example 4:

You should connect the white wire(currently on RS) to one of the C slots in Sprite.

You do not need to connect the black wire(currently on C) and the brown wire(currently on RS). RS terminal is the rain sensor. Therefore, you do not need to connect these wires.



Example 5:

The white wire is the common wire which should be connected to one of the C slots in Netro. The power adapter wires are the 2 black wires on the left side.

RS terminal is the rain sensor. Therefore, you do not need to connect these wires.



Example 6:

The white wires is the common wires which should be connected to one of  the C slots in Netro. The power adapter wires are the two black wires on the left side.

The green one below is the ground wire which is not needed for Netro.

You do not need to connect the rain sensors because Netro get the weather forecast through WiFi.



Example 7:

You do not need to connect the blue one (remote). You can just leave it dangling but please use the tape to cover the metal head. The remote feature in Sprite is through the WiFi.

I am not sure about the red and white one. These are the two AV power wires. Normally there is only one wire for AC1 and one wire for AC2. In your case, it looks like the AC power is also sent to another device. The safest way to handle this is to keep this original connection. You might want to "noodle" the wires and insert them into the two "24 VAC" slots in Sprite. Please check out this connector for wire junctions:

Replacing Toro system



This page lists some instructions about replacing the common types of Toro system with Netro smart watering controller. 




Example 1:

Toro model gk212-04

1. Connect the 2 white wires to the C slots, one on the left and the other on the right which is now occupied by a red one.

2. Move the red wire(currently on C slot) to M slot because it is for your master valve.

3. The last step is to connect the power then you should be good to go. 

Example 2:

Toro IC 8. 

The first slot of your current controller is master valve which should be connected  to "M" slot of Netro. The two wires in the second slot are common wires should be connected to the 'C' slot of Netro. The last step is to connect the power then you should be good to go. 


Example 3:

Toro Model 53765 6 zones


The red and white wires are the commons wires and should go to the two "C" slots in Netro Sprite controller. You do not need to connect the gray and black wires as they are the power wires for the old controller.

Instructions about Replacing Rainbird System

Netro Support
Updated at 2019-03-20 08:06:44 UTC 

Replacing Rainbird system



This page lists some instructions about replacing the common types of Rainbird system with Netro smart watering controller. 




Example 1:


 The common wires which should be connected to the C slots in Netro.

The Sprite controller does not need the ground wires. It does not need the rain sensor either. You can leave the M slot unconnected. 

Example 2:



The COM wire goes to any C slot in Sprite.

The M slot will be empty because you do not have master valve.

The two red wires on the left go to the two 24 VAC slots.

Others are straightforward.

Example 3:


1. the COM wire in RainBird go to any of the C slots in Netro

2. The 1-6 zone wires in RainBird go to Slot 1-6 in Netro

3. Use the power adapter coming with the package for Netro

Other wires you can disregard them.


Example 4:


12(blue) and 11(red) go to the two AC slots on the right side for Netro. 10(white) goes to any one of the C slot in Netro. 9(black) goes to the M slot in Netro. 8-1(red) go the ZONES in Netro. You can leave the green wire (GND) open. The two leads from the power adaptor go to the two AC slots.
