App Notifications for watering

Brett Lilly
Updated at 2020-04-13 18:42:28 UTC 

Mine is less of a question and more of a request. I would like notifications from the app that tells me when the Sprite has started watering or has skipped a watering. After setting up my Sprite this weekend, it skipped the first watering for low temps, but I had no idea of that. Also, I run my sprinklers in the early morning and it would be much easier to read the notification that it did water than have to go into the app and check it manually. This is the only thing I will miss after switching from a Rachio controller, otherwise it is everything I need.


I understand you don't want to spam us with notifications, but you could add a "Notifications" tab in the settings page where we could choose the notifications we want to receive. I would at least like the choice.

Sprite seems to open valve then fails to deliver water to the system

David Claridge
Updated at 2019-05-18 13:21:53 UTC 

I have had my Sprite installed for a couple of weeks and all seemed well, but looking at my garden I realized it was not watering. When I turn it on manually I can hear a short buzz and water entering the valve, but there is no flow. I can open the valve manually and water then flows. I have reverted the valve to the old timer and it then opens the valve, so I don't think the problem lies there. 

I have the black wire on the valve connected to the common terminal, which was how it was set up on the old timer. I cannot figure out what the the problem is. 

I am an international user with a non-Netro PSU, but it seems to as specified: 24VAC 850mA Adapter AC-AC 100V-240V to 24VAC Power Supply Adapter UK PLUG

Can anyone help me overcome this problem with what otherwise seems to be an excellent system?

One day restriction

My street is being paved one day next week.  I was told not to water my front lawn on that date.  The closest thing that the Netro app can do is restrict watering every day starting on that date.  There doesn’t seem to be a way of not watering on a specific date.

Faucet Connector Broke

Larry Griggers
Updated at 2020-04-14 18:49:27 UTC 

I was having difficulty getting a leakproof seal when attaching my Smart Hose Faucet Timer (Pixie-1) to my new faucet. I finally was able to tighten it tight enough not to leak, but after a week, it broke and popped off. It is probably under warranty, but is there somewhere I can buy a new connector and repair it myself?

Battery status

Is there a way to see the battery status (devices that use batteries) in the app home screen? It would be of great use when one is leaving the home for a few days, to make sure the device will have enough charge for those days.

Irrigation Pattern - new feature.

Alfonso Olias Sanz
Updated at 2021-08-31 09:42:59 UTC 

Hi

I have checked that the irrigation modes

DEEP

EPA

REGULAR

FREQUENT


Irrigate the same amount of water, the only difference is the frequency in days and time per irrigation.

The only mode that saves water is ECO 

Or does a DEEP / EPA modes, will help me to save water compared to REGULAR or FREQUENT during a period of time ( I also have installed the whisperer) . Is the whisperer able to detect deep water?


I would like to stress the grass up to a point irrigation is needed, so swapping between DEEP and ECO to save water. But I cannot create a calendar where I could set up the watering mode per month for instance.

Any advice?

Restriction means exactly..when not to water..but if I want specify the opposite?

Luca Manfrin
Updated at 2020-04-16 07:47:25 UTC 

Hello,


Using restrictions I discovered that I can only specify when NOT TO WATER but in my specific case I want to tell the system to water in between a certain time range.


Then I had to set up a restriction between 00:00 and START TIME

and add an other restriction between END TIME and 23:59


this was very tricky and not flexible.


It would be nice to have (in restriction page) a drop down menu to choose if specified timelapse is to water or not to water. 


Imagine if I want to specify the irrigation days and not the NOT IRRIGATED DAYS..could be very annoying.


I had to specify irrigation time range because I need solar power to irrigate and  I want to irrigate during most productive hours (I know that the best would be irrigate at early morning but also this is a money saving strategy). And probably I have to monthly move that range. 


Then please check if it s possible to upgrade it.


Thank you for your support

Daily Wind speed could not be accurate enough to decide if water or not

Luca Manfrin
Updated at 2020-04-16 10:23:31 UTC 

Hello,


When I set up not to water when wind (daily peak) is higher than a certain set value it seems that Netro will not water during all the day even if in many hours that limit value is not reached.


In my idea Netro should not water only during hours in which wind is higher than the limit value.


Look at my location wind forecast for today - from DARKSKY. During the day there is a great variation in wind speed.

 

for example today wind load of 10 km/h is reached only between 12:00 pm and 17:00 pm..then the system could water in differents hours outside that time range


then if i set wind limit at 10 km/h the Netro app should check if during allowed irrigation time range (or programmed) the  hourly speed limit is reached, not the daily wind speed limit. And in case shift the irrigation time to an hour in which hourly wind speed is lower than the limit.


Could be useful to be able to choose between set daily wind peak or hourly wind speed as limit.


thank you
