To the Netro community:
We recently have launched an update for the Netro app on App Store and Google Play. In the newest version of the app, we allow one sensor to monitor up to 3 zones but the user needs to make sure the zones have similar environmental conditions.
Please upgrade your app to the newest version and go to Settings->Sensors, select a sensor, go to Zones and select the zones you would like to monitor.
After saving the changes, you can go to the Home page and check the topsoil moisture level of your zones reported by sensor.
Please feel free to explore other new and exciting features that we just added :
1.Support Apple Watch
(only available for iOS )
2.Support Weather Underground PWS
(Please go to the Discover page and tap the "+" button on the upper right corner, select "Correct Rainfall")
I got my Sprite installed a few days ago. At first I configured only zone 1 because I had only 24V AC valve and left zone 2 connected to another sprinkler controller. Zone 1 is connected to a Whisperer sensor. Today I got another 24V AC and connect zone 2 also to the Sprite. After this I connected also zone 2 to the sensor.
I get a strange result in the readings. Both zone 1 and 2 show the same reading for lux, temperature and topsoil but different readings for subsoil. My question is, is the subsoil still calculated "mathematically" or is it read by the sensor? If the latter why do I get different readings?
There are two moisture levels: one is reported by the sensor for the top soil, the other is for the sub soil. The subsoil still calculated "mathematically" so you will get different readings.
