Topic: General

Hi have a standalone sensor in  a pot indoors. For the last 4 days since I have had it running its asked me to water every day. Which I have. I would like to know what the parameters for my plant are for it requesting water.


Also it shows 2% battery in the app in the day and 0% at night. The web app shows 15% all the time it seems.


Anyone have similar issues?

Weeper hoses need to run for hours, the only option in smart scheduling is drip irrigation which is having it max out at like 30 mins a day

Netro Sprite dead after 27 months (3 months post-warranty)

Doug Burkott
Updated at 2020-07-17 11:26:34 UTC 

Has anyone had an issue with their Sprite being inoperable shortly after the warranty ended?  I tested the power prongs with a voltmeter and the controller is getting electricity, but no lights are on.   It's 105 deg in Austin and no rain in sight.  I'm going out of town for 5 days, so I'm in trouble.  I'm going to have to go to Home Depot to get something off the shelf installed today before my trip.


Anyone with the same problem?  Has anyone been successful with a claim outside of the warranty period?


Update:  The Sprite went offline at the same time the LED light stopped working.  The watering schedule resumed two days later and the LED was still off.  Meaning - Sprite works fine, LED doesn't work.  Netro told me to send the unit in over the winter and they will repair the LED.  Awesome - thanks Netro!


All the best,

-Doug

Skipping watering

Sid Smith
Updated at 2021-06-10 21:04:56 UTC 

I have 9 zones which water every even day. 2 of the zones (flower beds) also have separate program for odd days. When the forecast predicts rain on an odd day and it does not materialize I run the flower bed program in late evening. The problem is that the full program the next day skips the 2 flower bed zones. Why is this?


Can we also add a rain probability % as the inch/rainfall parameter is not shown in weather forecasts. How does the program know when measuring minimum rain restriction.

Internet connection problems

I have had a lot of trouble with losing netro's connection with internet. My old router failed so I replaced it with an expensive mesh wifi system which provides wonderful service to everything I have tried to connect except my Netro! I have now discovered that it will not work with anything but 2.4 GHz wifi. The new wifi does not provide 2.4 connection. Is there a workaround for this? Or do I have to throw out my new state-of-the-art $400 5 GHz wifi to get my somewhat obsolete $100 Netro to work?

Using as a on/off switch

Have netro installed with sprinkler system. It works well. I have an above ground pool that I want install a solar heater to. I'd like to use the Netro to open a valve at a specific time and close it later, either at a time or interval. The longest program run is 60 minutes. I'd like to see something around 8 hours. Also, to be able to turn on/off via the app like the sprinklers would be perfect. Is this possible? I have looked but haven't found a way yet.

It has rained for past 2 days and it still says moisture in grass is 50-60%. I don’t have sensors but my understanding is it supposed to change due to weather forecast! It doesn’t so not very smart!

Power outage detection and more

Gian Piero Pepino
Updated at 2020-04-25 09:23:06 UTC 
Hello,
I’ve just bought my first Sprite and Whisperer and really eager to receive them and start them running in my garden.
In Italy, where I live, we often have this situation: during “off summer season” we live in town, but the garden is located in an holiday site, for instance at the seaside house (this is my case). It may happen that we experiment, sometimes, but unpredictably, a “power outage” accident. 
As far as I know, Netro has implemented a “cloud application”. Is it possible to be promptly advised that a “power outage” has just occurred? That would be quite useful, since if I’m promptly known of the issue, I can immediately take a properly action to recover the outage (with the help of a neighbour for instance). This may also be some kind helpful to support the diagnosis around the cause of the issue. I think that the “use case” might be the following: if Sprite is not set to “off mode” and have “no answer” to the check, send a message “possible power outage on Sprite id XXX”. Desirable channel of communication: email, whatsup, sms, … I’d really appreciate to know what you think about my proposition. I really deem it could be a very appreciated “complementary, but valuable service”.
Second question: is there any update on the list of the Meteo Forecasting Providers thar are supported by Netro? I’m interested particularly in Meteo.it and 3bmeteo.com
Thank you very much for your attention and support

Whisperer won't blink white during setup

Kevin Westling
Updated at 2021-06-12 03:01:46 UTC 
Prior to installing a whisperer to my system, I set it up outside in direct sunlight for 5 days. When I try to add it to my Sprite, the light only blinks red once. I've tried multiple times to press the power button 6 times and it's still just flashing red just once. What am I doing wrong?

Hi

My watering unit is programmed to water my lawn as necessary under the programs algorithm. However, I have numerous days when the watering is done twice— for exam0e it will run all the zones and immediately run the same zones again.  Anyone know how to fix that?
