I'm not understanding how "estimated frequency and duration" works...

Izio Sem
Updated at 2020-07-18 07:24:18 UTC 

Ciao.

Just installed Netro Sprite.

I enjoyed to set up the zones with advanced Smart watering, but I'm not confident with what is reported in "estimated frequency and duration". The frequency showed in the setting page seems too long (e.g. every 6 days)... but, if I see what is scheduled in the calendar it seems much closer to my expectation (e.g. every 2 days).   How daoes it work??


Thanks

Maurizio

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

Does Netro whisperer underestimate moisture?

Rick Agrawal
Updated at 2020-07-16 19:12:17 UTC 
I added a whisperer to one of our zones. Recently the moisture content was between 25-30%. We are having a hot summer with many days with 110 degrees. I believed it and watered for good 15-20 minutes. It turned out despite all those water the soil moisture went up to 45-50%. I went and checked again, the soil looks pretty good and appeared moist. 

Just curious if the whisperer tends to underestimate moisture?

This is needed in the app. The scheduling is harder then it needs to be.

Pixie: Shut off valve too weak?

JanT
Updated at 2020-07-08 18:44:04 UTC 

i installed the Pixie last Monday, Tuesday it worked fine for the programmed 10 min sprinklers, but this morning it marked as finished but kept on watering. I tried the manual shut off and on and discovered i had to reduce the water pressure for it to work. At full pressure i hear the noise that the valve is trying to close, but it fails. The light goes to green and the water keeps running... 

For now i am adressing it by reducing the water flow, but is this normal? I just have regular city water, nothing special, no special pressure...?

Good morning,

I ask you if in the next software update Netro the possibility of enabling and disabling the Master Valve for each zone, I explain, I have connected an Autoclave with a special 24 volt relay to the Master Valve output, there are areas where I have a system  micro-irrigation that does not need an autoclave.  


thank you

Battery status

Updated at 2020-07-07 15:07:47 UTC 
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.
