Backup

Best I can tell from the cursory technical specs is that for the Sprite the backup for a custom (not smart) watering schedule is in the cloud and for the Spark the backup is stored on-device in nonvolatile memory.  Is this correct?

I’ve 2 separate gardens, the first one has 2 zones and ( names: zone 1 and 2, they irrigate the left side and the right side of this garden) the second only one (Zone 3). I would like to connect zones one and two, to avoid, as it often happens, that zones one and two are watered on different days.  example: has watered zones 1 and 3 today, tomorrow it plans to water only zone 2. can someone help me?

Smart watering with an irrigation pump

klzig
Updated at 2021-06-15 14:16:19 UTC 
My irrigation system runs off of a pump.  If I enable smart watering, will zones automatically enabled for a certain day run sequentially such that the pump will be turned on at the beginning of the daily cycle and off at the end of the cycle?  I don't want the pump cycling on and off multiple times during the day.

Buonasera a tutti, 

Da questa mattina la centralina non mi chiude più la valvola della linea 1 dell’impianto... ho provato a fare reset ma niente continua con irrigazione!! 

Sono riuscito a sospendere irrigazione reimpostando da capo la centralina ma il problema e sulla linea 1 che non a trova più anche quando metto programma irrigazione.


Grazie mille

Sprite app says its watering but it is not

It has been working for 3 weeks, but now it does not. 

I have checked all 7 zones. No wiring issues. Has proper voltage. 

It just won't come on. How do I get it to work again. This is a new unit. Sprinklers are all fine and had a tune up when the Sprite was installed. 

I have unplugged it and plugged it back in. I need help soon, I have new sod and many new plants in my yard and gardens.

Installation help

Updated at 2020-07-31 18:47:07 UTC 

Greetings from Italy

this Monday I will receive my Netro Smart Irrigation controller and I have some concerns about the power supply.

On the YouTube video guide I saw there are 2 slots to put the power cables but I was only able to find a regular 24V power adapter with one single output.

Do I have to cut the power jack off and split the cables in order to put them in the controller?

thanks in advance for your help, can’t wait to become part of the Netro family!


this is the power adapter I ordered: Alimentatore 220 V – 24 V/1000mA https://www.amazon.it/dp/B00AWU8NUM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_OBgjFbJ8Q41F1



this is the Netro device I ordered: Netro Sprinkler Smart Controller, WiFi, Meteo consapevoli, Accesso remoto, 12 Zone, w/o Adattatore di Alimentazione https://www.amazon.it/dp/B07DGT7ZK1/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_iCgjFbP0QZ4DH

Does the Pixle have to be installed with the water coming into it on the "Hose Faucet Connection" side?

dad@darkroom.ai
Updated at 2021-04-03 19:04:13 UTC 

Basically, is the Pixie water control valve one way, or can it shut off/turn on with pressure from either side?  In order to install it so the button faces up, I need to install it so the water comes in what is labeled as the "Outlet" side.  I don't know if it's labeled "Outlet" because it is a male connection, or because it cares about the direction of the water.  Otherwise, I will need to buy a male/male and female/female adapter, flip it "upside down" and use it with the button facing down.


Thanks.

One Lawn, 2 Zones

Matt O.
Updated at 2019-06-11 16:07:07 UTC 

I have a lawn that is irrigated by 2 zones. How does Sprite determine that these zones are watering the same lawn? It wasn’t clear when setting up zones to inform that the zones are related to the same lawn. 


 Or, does it not matter, since the parameters are the same (lawn species, soil type, slope, area/2, etc.)?

Good product but there is not a windows 10 APP or the possiblity to setup by browser directly to IP address of netro. There is not web server inside.

Why such erratic scheduling when using smart watering?

ducati1198804
Updated at 2021-06-16 14:03:50 UTC 
Why does the Spark controller schedule watering zones so erratically?  I have 7 zones and if it decides that all 7 zones need to be watered on the same day, why wouldn’t it just water in order 1-7.  Instead it might water 1,2,4,7,3,5,6,7?.  Or it might water zone 1-2 on one day, 4,5,6,3 the next day, and then 7,7 the next day.  

Why does it want to water at least one or two zones per day for 4-5 days in a row instead 5-7 zones per day and turn on the system two days in a row?  

Seems like it would place uneccersary wear on valves and other system parts.

Watering zones twice

hjelmstadp
Updated at 2019-06-12 16:50:59 UTC 
My smart schedule seems to be working very well and is adapting to weather, etc.  However on days where it waters it seems to be doing everything twice.  For example many days it runs through all my zones and then immediately runs through them all again, each zone the same amount of time as the first time through.  Is this a glitch?  Seems like 9-14 minutes two times over the course of a few hours is a lot to me.

Whisperer not working as expected

Tony D.
Updated at 2019-09-09 12:57:04 UTC 

I've been using my sprite with a Whisperer since a few months. The sprite works wonderfully but the whisperer has serious probloms. I get incorrect readings. Specifically my whisperer is stating 1% topsoil moisture level. Honestly this is impossible after a sprinkling succeded at 6:00 this morning. This misbehaving is going on since the first week. It works for the first day or two after resetting the whisperer but then it goes weird. On other occasions instead the topsoil moisture was stuck at 98% even after several days of not sprinling in full summer with temperatures over 35°. 

I have tried anything from resetting the whisperer to changing spot. At this point I'm led to think that the whisperer is broken.

Is anybody else having this strange behavior?

Do you have any other suggestion to solve this problem?


I have noticed that you are not giving due importance on support requests in this forum about whisperer problems. In my opinion you should put more effort into this.
