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

Hello,


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

Restriction means exactly..when not to water..but if I want specify the opposite?

Hello,


Using restrictions I discovered that I can only specify when NOT TO WATER but in my specific case I want to tell the system to water in between a certain time range.


Then I had to set up a restriction between 00:00 and START TIME

and add an other restriction between END TIME and 23:59


this was very tricky and not flexible.


It would be nice to have (in restriction page) a drop down menu to choose if specified timelapse is to water or not to water. 


Imagine if I want to specify the irrigation days and not the NOT IRRIGATED DAYS..could be very annoying.


I had to specify irrigation time range because I need solar power to irrigate and  I want to irrigate during most productive hours (I know that the best would be irrigate at early morning but also this is a money saving strategy). And probably I have to monthly move that range. 


Then please check if it s possible to upgrade it.


Thank you for your support

This device is becoming a nightmare.


I bought 2 of these last week and they are unable to reconnect when my router drop connection some times. 


I continue to reset and restore everything each time I have a disconnection because both my devices are unable to reconnect. 


Probably I have to send back them to the seller or please give me a real resolution


I need to water my garden not spend hours and hours about this non smart device

Thank you

It could be useful to have watering notifications and few commands into smartphone notification drawer when system is watering.


like a song into my smartphone!

-PLAY/PAUSE WATERING FOR A SET TIME EQUAL TO THIS WATERING RUN PROGRAM

-SKIP TO NEXT WATERING ZONE PROGRAM

-SKIP FOR TODAY

-RUN AGAIN LAST WATERING ZONE, WITH SAME DURATION


Irrigation time of 0 minutes. then?

What's the point option to set the irrigation time at 0 minutes in manual execution? 

It would be more useful a 30 seconds run for testing the valves.

I have accidentally removed one of my devices from the app. 


There is a way to restore it without reset from the controller? in that case i would need to set up all zones again from the beginning.

Programming time vs Restrictions

Which is the difference between specify time range into preferences/programming and restrictions rules?


it seems that programming set a run time range to be applied to all zones while restritcions is a more flexible way to set time range and many other rules that can be applied to all or to specific zone. is it correct?


if programming time range is (completely) different (means never overlapped to) from time range set with restriction rules..what happens? not watering at all?
