Whisper doesn’t work only connected USB

Rogier Hoftijzer
Updated at 2024-05-15 17:16:55 UTC 
Who can help me? I have three Whispers. 2 working properly. 1 who has worked last year only ‘works’ when connected to USB. Loading works fine. Connecting will work. But when placed in the garden it doesn’t work anymore and loses connection and no lights etc. 

What is wrong? WiFi signal is good outside. He is fully loaded? Is the battery broke? He’s only one year old….. one summer season outside. Whole winter stored inside.


Please help me.

I updated the wifi password in the router. I was able to set up the password in the netro controller but not in the whisperers. I followed the steps provided by the app, pressing 6 times very fast the whisperer button.


But the whisperer wifi did not appear. I tried with 2 of the 5 whisperer I have, but process is not working

Using Bootlace ferrules.

Updated at 2023-08-03 06:36:09 UTC 
I'd like to use bootlace ferrules for all the wiring to the sprite as shown in your installation video (power connection). I'm using 0.5mm² x 7 core cable and 0.5mm² bootlaces and the unit won't grip them. I've tried other sizes with the same result. What size ferrule is required?

Pixie-Z1-H - How to install?

kernel
Updated at 2023-06-14 15:54:05 UTC 
  • I have received a new Pixie-Z1 and a hub
  • Downloaded the Netro iOS App from the UK app store
  • In the App I added the hub connecting through Bluetooth and configuring WiFi access for the hub
  • Hub shows constant green light

Now how can I add the Pixie-Z1 hose faucet to my account? The App only shows the option for the Pixie-1, which doesn't work because the Pixie-Z1 uses the Zigbee connection, not WiFi.

Installation 3 Wisperer and a Pixie in my garden

Apollon16
Updated at 2023-06-12 12:25:08 UTC 
Good morning,

I have three Wisperers and a Pixie. I can't install my three Wisperers in the same area as my Pixie. I managed to install Wisperer with my Pixie but the other two. How do I install all Wisperer with my Pixie?

If the Pixie is installed in a different area than the Wisperers, does it all work together to optimize my garden watering?

Pros and cons Spark 8 and Pixie

Adil Ridvan
Updated at 2023-06-08 04:44:28 UTC 

Just wanted to provide some feedback. I had B-hyve XR Smart Indoor/Outdoor Sprinkler Timer for 2 years. I noted that it does not water on a schedule sometimes. Either because the internet was down, and it did not reconnect or something else. The contractor who replaced it told me that there is probably an internal battery, and it should have been replaced. Too late.

I Googled the best irrigation timer and found that Orbit B-hyve is the best, followed by Netro. Never heard of it. I chose it because it retains programs in case of Wi-Fi outage. I bought Spark 8 zones and installed it today (my contractor did). Also 2 Pixies.

Pros:

Clean modern packaging, clear web interface, app has installation instructions and troubleshooting tips.

Cons:

Why white cover? I could not see indicators with daylight. How to pair? Did some of your staff try to install it in bright daylight outdoors?

Does it have an internal battery which eventually needs to be replaced? How is the memory retained? I believe this was a problem with B-hyve..

What about Pixie? Is rechargeable battery forever?

Web interface still needs improvement: for example – my order is in a different place than my account, Pixie should state that there is no backup program, other logical flaws.

Created a program on Spark, but when tried to edit time it did not allow, stating that the same program already exists.

Backup should automatically copy the program with the option to edit. Why should it be entered as a separate program if this is a backup in case of Wi-Fi outage?

The outdoor cover can have a transparent wall to see indicators.

Thank you.

Adil

Help! Pump Relay Question

Kirk Davis
Updated at 2022-09-01 13:43:25 UTC 
My unit has been working great . However, the relay no longer trips when a zone is activated. Am I supposed to have 24v A/C between M and C (on the right side of the panel, not the zone side) when a zone is active? I can trip the relay if I pull it from the Netro. Some sort of voltage output map would be helpful. 

I have new grass seed down, so please help soon.

Suspect a shorted solenoid

rbrodt
Updated at 2022-08-25 16:00:32 UTC 

I bought a Netro Spark to replace an existing controller (a Raspberry pi based Open Sprinkler system) which exploded probably due to a shorted solenoid.


I read that the Spark can detect solenoids that are drawing too much current; is it safe to connect the Spark to shorted solenoids without worrying about damage to the controller?


Should I test all the solenoids with an amp meter first just to make sure?

Upgrading from old rain bird system

Bryan Clarke
Updated at 2022-08-14 20:18:01 UTC 

Hi - I am trying to determine if the 12 station Netro  spark would be easy for me to install.

I currently have a rather old rain bird system with 16 valves.


I think I understand the mapping of the com and individual values. But I am confused about the 24 vlt and my current rain sensor.

It seems like my 24vlt wires come from a pack/converter that is plugged into an outlet. Is this directly convertible - not sure how I take the orange wires and the devices they are connected to on the left of the picture to the new controller?


As well, would my current hunter rain sensor still work with the new controller, or do I need a different one?


Thanks for your help and advice.
