I have two whisperers, one in zone 2 at the front and one in zone 4 at the back. We're in Mexico so it's ridiculously hot and sunny all the time. The unit at the back faces north west. The unit at the front faces north. Both units are now dead. Neither will reset or power up.

Having a problem since upgrade of the app. Doesn't seem possible unless the main unit updated as well. Valves close within a few minutes of being activated by manual start, or programmed schedule. Have not test with smart watering disabled, but it happens on manual starts, so not sure that is even a variable. The Zone still shows as actively watering in the application. If you submit a stop  action by pressing the red square,then restart, via the sideways triangle, the zone will come back on again. However, it shortly shuts back off, while still showing the zone as being actively watered. This is happening across all four of my zones. Curiously, if you unplug the controller after the valve shuts off, but the app still shows it watering, wait a bit, and then plugit back int-the zone comes backon shortly after reboot.

Tested countless times, hasn't finished a cycle in a month. The zone stops sending the 24v signal causing the pump relay to snap shut and turn off the water supply, or perhaps the zone valve. Either way, appears to be a very odd defect. Do I need a replacement unit?  (BTW, I have all smart fumctioms disabled)

Zones run at the same time

Rich Christenson
Updated at 2019-08-15 11:05:09 UTC 

When I started running a scheduled daily program in conjunction with smart watering selected, for some reason zones will run at the same time.

Am I doing something wrong?  I have a one minute delay in my zones and when I didn’t have the program running the zones would run independently.


When I open the app while the two zones are running, it only displays one zone running.  I’m super confused.

Low pressure in zones

Hussein Diab
Updated at 2019-07-29 16:36:31 UTC 
Hello, I've noticed that 2 out of my 6 zones suffer from low to no water pressure. I tried removing the nozzles to test but the water kept barely coming out. I know the solinoids are working because the water is coming from the zones, but how can I understand why there is super low pressure?

Recently I have been having issues with zones 5-8 stop watering before the cycle is over, but keeps counting down and moves to the next zone and does the same thing. I have tried resetting the unit, re-linking the wifi, but doesn't seem to make a difference. Help!

Controller consistently goes offline

Kyle Giacomini
Updated at 2019-07-12 15:05:29 UTC 

Hi there,

My controller has been losing connection to the internet everyday for about two weeks. The controller light stays solid and my app says the controller is offline. I can only reset the controller by physically disconnecting the power supply for 10 seconds and rebooting. This is getting anyoying and is  becoming a daily routine. I have a wifi extender 2 ft from the controller location as well. If I can't depend on the controller to stay online, what's the point of having an internet based sprinkler system? What steps can I take to make the controller stay connected to the internet?

Watering all zones simultaneously

I installed as directed and only have three zones, but every time the system comes on all zones are watering simultaneously.  I installed the common wire as it was removed from the last controller and each valve wire is hooked to zones 1-3.  Any thoughts or ideals are appreciated.  Thank you

My new whisperer is connected inserted into the ground as per the instructions.  It has been there for two days through various watering cycles but the app says the topsoil moisture level is 0% ( the subsoil is 88%).  Is the unit defective or am I missing something?

New Whisperer won't turn on, Single Red LED flash

I just received my new Whisperer and when I push the power button, I get one single red LED flash and that's it.  It won't do anything else.  I put it in the sun for a couple of hours to see if the battery was dead, this didn't solve the issue.

Smart schedule failed/ watering outside perameters

Kyle Giacomini
Updated at 2019-07-01 16:32:17 UTC 

My controller keeps losing connection to the wifi. Is there a way the app can send a notification when that occurs? 

Also, my smart watering program skipped the zones during this time. I thought if the controller was offline the programs would continue as  scheduledt? it would be nice to know why the program was skipped, like a diagnosis log of the errors.

Additionally, the controller randomly started the irrigation programs outside my set time peramerters. I'm afraid the controller is glitching out. I believe this all occured when the controller was disconnected from the internet.

Has anyone had a difficult time getting the device to connect? When I get to step 5 of the setup process it says the connectivity is unsuccessful. Up to that point it says all the other connections were successful. I’ve reset my router and the controller.

Disconnecting Constantly

Kate Whelan
Updated at 2019-06-09 18:05:15 UTC 

My Netro Smart Sprinkler Controller, WiFi, Weather aware, Remote access, 6 Zone, Compatible with Alexa disconnects CONSTANTLY from the app/network and I’m about to put back on our old school controller. Today it disconnected IN THE MIDDLE of watering the lawn while I was feeding/putting my baby down for a nap and it ended up watering for 28 mins, flooding my backyard. Ugh. 


Any tips on fixing this? I do not have intermittent internet or power issues. Is there a hardware update? Aside from this, I LOVE it - but this is kind of a deal killer for me. I plan to call customer service on Monday, but thought I’d check here for tips to see if I can fix it sooner.
