Having a problem since upgrade of the app. Doesn't seem possible unless the main unit updated as well. Valves close within a few minutes of being activated by manual start, or programmed schedule. Have not test with smart watering disabled, but it happens on manual starts, so not sure that is even a variable. The Zone still shows as actively watering in the application. If you submit a stop  action by pressing the red square,then restart, via the sideways triangle, the zone will come back on again. However, it shortly shuts back off, while still showing the zone as being actively watered. This is happening across all four of my zones. Curiously, if you unplug the controller after the valve shuts off, but the app still shows it watering, wait a bit, and then plugit back int-the zone comes backon shortly after reboot.

Tested countless times, hasn't finished a cycle in a month. The zone stops sending the 24v signal causing the pump relay to snap shut and turn off the water supply, or perhaps the zone valve. Either way, appears to be a very odd defect. Do I need a replacement unit?  (BTW, I have all smart fumctioms disabled)

The new version is exactly as promised! I can't wait to see how it works!

I have configured my WU PWS, and setup a secondary rain guage as well! 

Where's our promised update?

It's the last day of the month and the new version still hasn't dropped. You are already a month past your original commit date. Please stop marketing products that are add-ons, when the software is lagging substantially. The big companies are going to catch, kill and eat you unless you start running faster. 

Roadmap and delivery timeline.

Topic: Netro app
It's been nearly two months since you said adjusting actual rainfall would be added to the app. No useful updates at all. We deserve to know if you are spending your time on other products, and are not planning to fix this app. Transparency would help keep me from pulling my hair out. 

Weather Company API- Revenue stream for Netro

Topic: General
It is my understanding that you could restore our ability to pull data into netro from our individual weather stations. This would require paying for the API, which you could mark up 20% and offer a paid option to netro clients. $3.99 a year, for example, would be totally worth it to get accurate information to my sprinkler controller. As I have outlined in a previous post, dark sky has proven to be wildly inaccurate. It's Miss estimates rainfall by at least 50%, on average, and is within three degrees plus or minus on high temperature only about 50% of the time.

Irritating - Dark Sky is junk.

Topic: Netro app

Why can't I see the assumption Netro is making on the amount of rain that fell the day before? I paid Dark Sky for the time machine feature, but it's never accurate Yesterday  it rained here over an inch (rain gauge and $250 weather station agreed)  Dark Sky time machine (no, not Hot Tub time machine) reported  25 inch. At the very least I should be able to go into the app and put the actual rain that fell for the day before. Is there a way to do it, and if not, will you please add it? I would get a Whisperer, but the feedback has been rather poor on here. 


The community is nice, but how am I supposed to see answers? It shows "Answers 2", for example, but you click in it, and noting happens. Irritating 


Thanks,
