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

Topic: Smart watering


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
