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.

One day restriction

My street is being paved one day next week.  I was told not to water my front lawn on that date.  The closest thing that the Netro app can do is restrict watering every day starting on that date.  There doesn’t seem to be a way of not watering on a specific date.

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

Spanish translation

Juan P
Updated at 2019-08-10 21:48:16 UTC 

Hi

I bought a netro Sprite controller and have been using the app for a couple of weeks now. I find the Spanish translation quite bad. Looks like a direct Google translation. 

I can help you in the translation if you want. Feel free to ask me for help if you want.


I would also love to be able to integrate netro with Google home. Currently I can't find it in my Google home app because of the lack of Spanish translation. I can help you with that if you want.


Apart from the Spanish translation problems, I think you have a great app and devices. Congratulations!

Plant Sensors Monitoring Multiple Zones

Netro Support
Updated at 2019-08-07 06:39:15 UTC 

To the Netro community:


We recently have launched an update for the Netro app on App Store and Google Play. In the newest version of the app, we allow one sensor to monitor up to 3 zones but the user needs to make sure the zones have similar environmental conditions.


Please upgrade your app to the newest version and go to Settings->Sensors, select a sensor, go to Zones and select the zones you would like to monitor.

            

            

After saving the changes, you can go to the Home page and check the topsoil moisture level of your zones reported by sensor.

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

itsthesun
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?

Sprite doesn't open valve

Tony D.
Updated at 2019-08-06 20:38:31 UTC 

I'm doing a first installation with an 100-HV-FF 24V ACRain Bird valve.I connected the wires to the C and 1 connector to serve zone 1. I populated the zone in the app. Because I want to test the system before I disassemble my previous I did not install the valve between the pipes. I click the "play" triangle in app home screen but I get no reaction from the valve. The solenoid is completely closed. I am using the 24V AC/AC adapter bought on your website.

Does the valve need water flowing through to work properly?


Thank you

changing watering zone times?

Gary Walloch
Updated at 2019-08-06 01:53:14 UTC 
I have one zone showing a watering time of 1 minute.  Is there a way to change this.  In the settings it says it waters every 2.65 days for 13.5 minutes.  It may take 30 seconds or more for the zone to come on.  Any ideas

Install

Updated at 2019-08-05 15:17:08 UTC 
Post install and after first unsuccessful run, it says it watered but it definitely did not, I found an extra wire that I had plugged into ‘C’ next to the ‘M’, that I had left unplugged in my last successful Netro setup. I have now unplugged it and did another unsuccessful run. My question is, when making a wiring tweak like that do I need to press the ‘RST’ before proceeding with a run?
