Has anyone else noted that very few of these posted questions are getting answers? Is Netro even looking at these queries/problems?

I have a Whisperer that will not reset after winter storage.  No answers to my posted question. If I cannot reset the unit it will be the last one I ever buy. Only one season of function is unacceptable.

Whisperer sensor not activating.

Sensor was removed thru winter. Now will not activate and shows single red light only. Been in direct sun for 3 days so fully charged. Cannot get white light to reprogram.

Smart zone predictions?

I am still trying to figure out the rain prediction algorithm. 

I had 1 set of zones schedule to eater at 5 am on the 17th.

This was overridden by the program anticipating rain at 3am on the 18th (according to forcast). Why does it look so far ahead? Does it take into account the current moisture reading? There is an 85° full sun day between these events.

Skipping watering

I have 9 zones which water every even day. 2 of the zones (flower beds) also have separate program for odd days. When the forecast predicts rain on an odd day and it does not materialize I run the flower bed program in late evening. The problem is that the full program the next day skips the 2 flower bed zones. Why is this?


Can we also add a rain probability % as the inch/rainfall parameter is not shown in weather forecasts. How does the program know when measuring minimum rain restriction.
