Configuration for Netro Sprite suggestions requests

Tony D.
Updated at 2019-06-14 22:30:14 UTC 

I am interested in buying the Netro Sprite sprinkler. I read several reviews and they are all pretty good. I noticed that many state that the sprite is not able to water two zones at the same time. Is this something limited by project and wanted or do you think it could be upgraded with a software upgrade?

I wanted to ask you some questions about my garden layout. I attach a planimetry for convenience.

The garden consists of two pieces surrounded by railings with a central railing too. The one on the left side is about 70cm lower then the one on the right side.

The two big areas are covered with lawn. At the left side border there are 8 laurus nobilis plants (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurus_nobilis) while at the right side border there are 8 Trachelospermum jasminoides plants (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trachelospermum_jasminoides).

Based on your experience how many zones would you create. At first I thought to go with three zones: one for both lawn plots, one for the laurus and another for the Trachelospermum. My doubt is I need to split the two lawn plots into two separate zones. How would the inability to operate different zones at the same time affect the watering and would the Sprite handle different times automatically or would I need to intervene manually?

My last question is about the Whisperer sensor, how many of them would you place in the garden?

Waiting forward to your suggestions,

Tony

I wondering what is the best moisture level to keep for lawn. The sensor is somewhere around 42%, after watering the garden. Is that enough, should it be more?

Adding multiple sensors to a Pixie

Topic: General
I have a mister setup with multiple Herb racks and raised garden beds. I just got a Pixie and a few Whispers. My hope was using one Pixie and monitoring each bed with a whisper. Is this possible? Can I create multiple zones? Is this something going forward that might be possible? I don't want to set them up as standalones.

Metro Sprinkoer states it's running but it's not

Updated at 2021-10-08 19:51:30 UTC 

I have noticed recently that my lawn has been dry. When looking at the app, it states that the schedule ran successfuly. I decided to test manually today and have noticed that even thougit says it is watering, it is not. I would estimate at least a two weeks that it has not ran. Also had a bunch of offline online notifications. I completely disconnected and reconnected from power and still no luck.

Netro Sprite + Netatmo Rain gauge + Wunderground

Tony D.
Updated at 2019-09-24 21:08:17 UTC 

Hello everybody,

I own a Sprite and a Netatmo weather station. By now I have configured the Netro App to use Wunderground as the meteo provider. More specifically I have configured my own Netatmo Weather station as a provider. I have to say that it works pretty good in forecasting weather conditions. I would like to know if somebody else is using this configuration and owns also the rain gauge module. In case, does provide the correct rain amount of rainfall in the Netro app Discover page. It would be nice if the Netro "AI" could use the exact rainfall from the rain gauge provided through wunderground.


Anyone experimenting with this?

Whisper Top soil and subsoil sensor reading

Weston Hull
Updated at 2020-05-07 14:52:41 UTC 

Hello,

 Is there a way to use the subsoil reading vs the topsoil reading from the sensor.  For example the top soil reading always reads 100% but the sub soil says 55% which is more believable in Florida's Sandy soil.  The unit did not water for 27 days and still read 99% and sub soil at 20%.  I watered it to see if it would change.  When I take the sensor out of the ground it does change state.

Two locations

Robert Garlick
Updated at 2018-06-22 13:31:35 UTC 

I have a system working in Florida and I just wanted to do the same thing in Kansas and I bought it and I have wired it but I haven't plugged it in because I don't know how I'm going to control each different location and I'm afraid something might go wrong and I won't be able to water in Florida.

So how do I control each separate location with the same phone?

Ip address

Kris Y
Updated at 2019-09-25 20:13:08 UTC 

You mentioned you would add the ability to display the ip address in the next upgrade. Having dealt with networking issues for many years. I find it best to be able to assign static ip addresses to my home networked devices so I don’t have random dhcp issues causes by laptops or phones reconnecting and trying to take over an IP address that might be in use by a device that is a permanent resident.


Would you add the ability to assign the IP address to the controller? Many people don’t realize the significance of this but I find it important to a healthy home network.

When you select the year view you see only 12 months. Instead it would be useful to add 13, so I could compare year over year the same month.

Not only the last 12 months

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.
