Put Sprite in "paused" mode in winter

To put Sprite in "paused" mode in winter, you will have winterize your system. First you will have to blow out the sprinkler. You can look at this video to find some useful information. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3YRbJYmvgA&t=99s


This video mentioned that you will have to turn on the sprinkler, so you can use the instant manual run feature in the home page to manually start watering for each zone to make sure all the water is out of system.


Then you should put Sprite in "paused" mode just in case some one (for example the kids) accidentally starts a manually run from the app. To put Sprite in "paused" mode, you can go to Settings->Controller->Enabled.

How can I give my landscaper a way to manage the watering cycles?

I would like to be able to share this account with my wife and my landscaper so they have access to turn things on and off when needed. Especially when I'm going to have my landscaper do work on my sprinkler system to fix the heads he needs to be able to test it easily without me being there.

The app crashes on android phone (S8) when attempting to set rain preferences. This is annoying. None of my messages regarding this have been answered by tech support. Perhaps I should return the device and get a Rachio?

Hello. I'm setting a zone in where i have to water Redwood pine trees. I was looking for them under the species/type. I can't find it. I tried different names, species, etc. I believe it's not available yet.


Please, could you help me with:


Letting me know which tree available within the app will be more suitable to cover Redwood pine tree needs

Updating, if it is possible, the trees list available in the app


Thanks in advance.

Accuracy of dark sky in Canada

Ken Wiens
Updated at 2018-07-31 03:16:54 UTC 

The dark sky android app is not available in Canada  so I wonder how accurate their weather is here.  To try and determine this for myself, I looked at the netro temperature graph..  Today it is 34C at my house  but the temperature summary graph in  Netro says it is only 22C. (for my friends still using Fahrenheit that is about a 24F difference )  Does anyone know when Netro gets the temperature that it uses in the graph? Other thoughts on dark sky accuracy in Canada?

Netro and Alexa

Ken Wiens
Updated at 2018-07-30 22:29:36 UTC 

I've loaded the Alexa skill for Netro. When I tell Alexa to ask Netro to water a zone, it just looks up references for "metro" instead. Much as I appreciate Alexa looking up train schedules for me, I'm curious if others have had this problem.  I've tried pronouncing  it "net row" and "neat row" but  neither gets recognized. 


This isn't a critical issue, as I'm not sure I would ever see the point in voice control over my sprinklers  but thought I would set it up to try anyway

Scheduling

Richard Hall
Updated at 2018-07-09 15:56:46 UTC 

i’ve had the controller installed for almost 2months now and it works fine. I like the idea that it seems to know how much to water and keep the lawn  green. However I have pets who use the backyard and would like the watering to be between 9 pm and 5 am.  I think the system can be setup for manual watering times BUT that defeats getting an expensive smart system to replace a low end rainbird system.  

Is there anyway to set up time constraints on the system and still run on automatic,


Also lack of a manual and good instruction is a pain.
