Hello there,

I'm new to netro and I tried to setup smart watering but the data I provided it will do it just once a week. 

How is it possible? Is it safe to water just once a week?

Unexpected smart schedule

Tony D.
Updated at 2019-08-12 09:35:56 UTC 

Hi,

I set up a sprite connected to a whisperer. In the smart scheduling I see that my two zones would be watered in the following way the next day:

- zone 1: 6:00 16 min.

- zone 2: 6:17 15 min.

- zone 1: 6:46 16 min.

- zone 2: 7:02: 15 min.

I have 1 minute delay between each watering.

What I see the next morning is only the first two waterings made but not the second. Specifically:

- zone 1: 6:00 16 min.

- zone 2: 6:17 15 min.

I'm worried that my lawn is missing water since these days we are having the hottest days of summer (41 Celsius).

My whisperer now (11:23 AM august 12th) reads 0 lux, 23 C, 89% topsoil and 72% subsoil for zone 1 and 70% for zone 2. The whisperer is connected both to zone 1 and zone 2 so I don't know why I get different subsoil readings.

Immediately below I see "Moisture" "All day" both for zone 1 and zone 2. Could you please explain this behavior?

It would be nice if you could provide a blog post with all combinations of possibilities and related meanings.

UPDATE

In the web application I have found "User" in the restriction column searching. In the iOS app the only restriction I found to be activated could be the "Moisture to skip watering" in the watering adjustment for the whisperer sensor which is set to 80%.


Thank you in advance,

Tony

Scheduling ( Two Smart watering levels; Smart disabled)

Netro Support
Updated at 2019-08-12 08:29:21 UTC 

There are 2 different levels of Netro’s smart watering you can choose(Go to Settings->Zones->Smart Zone)


 1. Smart watering: Level advanced

This is the default setting of smart watering. In this level, your zones will be watered automatically by Netro with smart schedules.

Netro will do everything for you, you do not need to set up the program/schedule.

Netro will skip smart watering and programs when there is large amount of rain(>0.2inch/ 5.08 mm) or watering regulations and manual restrictions.

You can inspect the Smart schedules in the calendar view. They are with the blue water-drop icons.

 

 

2.Smart watering: Level basic

In this level, no smart schedule will be generated. You will need to add programs manually (go to Settings->Programs to add programs) and Netro will skip programs when there is large amount of rain(>0.2inch/ 5.08 mm) or watering regulations.

 If you do not want smart zone schedule to override your own programmed schedule, you can set up the Smart Zone level from Advanced to Basic, which only skip rainning days for your programmed schedule.

Please note when smart zone is enabled, your local regulations will automatic override your own program if there is any conflict. So when you set up your own program watering time, please do not conflict with your local Regulations if there is any. To check up regulations, please go to Settings->Regulations.

 

 

3.Smart-zone feature disabled

If you want to create your own programs and turn off smart zone feature and rain delay feature, go to Settings->Zones->Smart Zone and toggle the enable button. When the smart zone is disabled, the system will strictly follow the user program to water the zones. There is no intelligence here. Netro will not skip your schedules when there is rain. Regulation feature will not be in effect as well.

I have smart watering enabled with a preference for watering times between 1 and 7.  The schedule shows the system is running from 1 - 10 am and then again starting at 6:00 pm - 9:36.  How do I get this adjusted? My water bill was the highest it has ever been!

Smart Watering advanced watering times

Updated at 2019-08-06 20:42:23 UTC 

Hey I'm all setup and running with my sprite and things are great!


My issue is that the advanced smart waters is choosing times that are early in the morning when I shower and its reducing the water pressure for me and I'm sure the heads have less pressure coming out since I am using water too. 


Is there anyway without going to basic scheduling and making my own programs that I can edit the times in the morning it waters?

How do I set my program to run each zone for 30 minutes each, but water 10 minutes 3 times each.  I thought this used to be an option, but I don’t see it.

Whisperer and smartzone configuration

Alfonso Olias Sanz
Updated at 2019-07-19 13:45:19 UTC 

I have set up all the zones with the whisperers. And there is something I do not understand.

One of the zones usually get flooded in autumn because the type of soil retains lots of water. 


But the whisperer and the smart zone is saying that the zone has to be watered more time than the other zones. 

My question is if the whisperer adapts the irrigation schedules and the time is watering per zone. Depending on the moisture, weather conditions  and type os soil.  It is clear that the soil type determines how much and how often to water. 


Here in the following link (https://www.netrohome.com/shop/products/whisperer)says that "Netro accurately measures the water capacity and drainage rate of your soil, making sure your soil always receives the perfect amount of water at the perfect time."

That is fine, but it is confusing that in the app I can still define the type of soil.


A second question I have is that I can define the watering strategy (Regular, ECO etc...) I want to know if the whisperer and the controller will notify me if I have to change the strategy based on the weather conditions and the type of soil, plants etc...


Any idea?

Reset Moisture Level

firewally
Updated at 2019-07-06 14:06:03 UTC 

Hi!


For testing reasons I "watered" one of my zones manually, which increased the moisture level (but I did not water this zone actually). How can I reset the moisture level of one or all zones to get a proper calculation again and to have all my zones (that are absolutely identically configured) showing the same level and getting the same scheduled watering?


Thanks!

Have you already schedule to connect METEO.it and THE WEATHER CHANNEL ? The available providers are not so fine tuned with ITALIAN forecast data system. Please see attached screenshot of the three different forecast provided today from your three providers :

Rain versus no rain

Dennis G
Updated at 2019-07-03 03:27:38 UTC 
I understand feature for setting rain delay, but would find it useful to adjust smart scheduling to say there was NO rain on a day it was forcasted. We have had >90 degreeF days and today smart schedule had rain as forcast, but we only had a trace - meaning the lawn needs irrigation but Smart is preventing/delaying it. I know I could increase the amount of rain threshold,  but it will still not correct for when that amount of rain has occured in the area - just not here.

Hey- just added the whisperer sensors to the system - one sensor by the bamboo always shows zero lux sunlight, it is mostly in shade, but definitely gets light, is it strange that sensor shows zero lux?

Zones Scheduled; Did Not Run

Matt O.
Updated at 2019-06-14 14:30:18 UTC 

Good Day,

Really enjoying the product and app so far. 

 Another question: I noticed my Smart Water schedule includes a couple zones that did not end up running at the scheduled time (see attached screenshot). Is this due to the dynamic changes in the algorithm? The home page did show, however, that these zones ran but they actually did not. 

Thanks.
