Questions

IFTTT out of sync

Topic: Netro app

Hi and thanks for fixing my last bug.

Another problem I have is with IFTTT being out of sync with my Pixie, eg, I schedule the Pixie to operate between 4:30 am and 4:45 am but IFTTT, whichI use to switch on the pump, reports it active between 4:43 to 5:24 am.

The consequence is that I only get 2 minutes of water as the Pixie has already stopped the flow by the time IFTTT turns the pump on.

Please advise.

App locks up

Topic: Netro app

I have recently found that my Netro APP locks-up waiting for my Pixie to respond while trying to set the schedule or even just entering the home screen.

It is locked-up at the moment (29/08/22 09:39).

I have deleted the APP and relaunched it but still get the problem.

I am running 15.6.1 on my iPhone SE and iPad.

Please advise.

Hi,

Can I ask how long you plan to support the present Pixie and accessories now that the super-dooper new zig bee version is being released? I believe that there is a 10 year legal obligation in the EU for new designs and what’s the news on compatibility with the original units?

Rain sensor

How do I incorporate a rain sensor (or other device) and make it override expected rainfall?

I am supposed to be in a rainy period but have missed the heavy stuff completely so that my pixie just remains off after reading the forecasts.

What’s the best way of correcting for actual rainfall?

Can you tell me if the Netmo system can be linked to security systems that can then turn the water off automatically if a movement is detected so that they don’t get a soaking?

I’m thinking apple Home in particular.

Can you tell me if your database of watering restrictions covers the UK?

If it doesn’t, can you tell me when they are likely to be added?

Cheers,
