Sunlights graph for the current day is always wrong

Igor
Updated at 2020-06-25 14:27:46 UTC 
I’ve noticed what sunlight graph shows wrong value for the current day. This value is always higher than any other day but it gets corrected later. 
For instance, screenshot below was done Thursday morning at 7am. I can not believe I had that much sun during the night. But tomorrow graph will show much lower value for Thursday. And that happens every day

Not watering nearly often enough.

Rob and Susan Tartre
Updated at 2020-06-24 20:13:25 UTC 

I need the Netro system to water every day in this hot, dry climate. Our lawn is turning brown. It’s used to being watered every day. The smart watering system is watering every 4 days. I have both the frequency set to high and the moisture levels set to high. I do not have sensors. What else can I adjust to get it to run every day. I’m trying to figure out how to choose everyday using the smart system. Do I just need to set manual program? That kind of defeats the purpose of having smart watering (adjusting for rain, etc.)

Thank you for any help!!

Programming square footage

Topic: General

Hello - I just installed the Netro pixie and whisperer to to water our golden goddess bamboos in planters. We have a drip irrigation system and I’m not sure what to put in the “sq ft” parameter in the Netro app. We have a total of 7 planters that are all hooked to the same hose /drip irrigation hose. Each planter is 41″ x 12″ x 18″. What should I list as the sq feet? Is it just one planter or all 7?

Also - does the whisperer talk to the pixie to tell it how often it should water and automatically water as such? Is there anything I need to do to turn on that function? I live in Los Angeles and our bamboos are up on our deck where it gets extremely hot/dry. 

Thanks!

User Guide - Manual watering with your Pixie timer

Netro Inc
Updated at 2020-06-22 07:37:55 UTC 

The Pixie timer is designed for automatic watering. However, occasionally you may still need to turn on/off the water manually. Before explaining manual watering from the app, it would be helpful to understand how the Pixie communicates with the Netro cloud server.


By default, your Pixie turns on its WiFi module once every hour to sync up with the server. The sync-up usually takes less than one minute. For the next 59 minutes the timer will be sleeping and disconnected from the WiFi until the next sync. When the timer is sleeping, it is unaware of the schedule changes, including the manual watering.


Therefore, when you start a manual run, the timer is most likely in sleep mode. It will have to wait until the next sync-up to start the watering. The waiting time will be less than 60 minutes. Take the following screenshot for example:



The current time is 5:24AM and the next sync is scheduled at 6:17AM. Therefore the waiting time is going to be 53 minutes. After you press the Start button, you can go to the Schedule page and the manual run at  6:17AM will appear on your calendar.

Certificate Expired?

Robohead
Updated at 2020-06-19 20:03:10 UTC 
My Netro app on my phone and iPad will not let me sign in today. Instead, it shows an error message saying the Netro website certificate has expired and it’s dangerous to login. This is concerning because I did not know that if the website is down, I do not have any control over watering my lawn. None. Is there a way to get around this or do I need to return my sprite 6 smart water controller?

Whisperer plus basic smart watering

Andy Black
Updated at 2020-06-15 21:10:38 UTC 

Hi,


If you are using the “basic” smart watering mode, is Whisperer data considered to turn off a watering schedule similar to what is done with the weather forecast?


Thanks,

Andy

Does smart zone adjust water time depending on temperature change?

For instance, does smart zone automatically adjust to water more for those days over 90 degrees and water less for cooler days?

how do I add a whisperer to one of my accounts?

Douglas Ely
Updated at 2020-06-12 23:52:57 UTC 

I purchased a whisperer to automatically adjust the watering of problem areas. I received the product and turned it on. The white light began pulsing. I went to the Netro app and selected the account I wanted to add the whisperer to. When I go to "settings" and select "sensors" there is a blank screen. There is no "+" or add button or even any choices other than "back". I then tried to set it up under my own account. I clicked the "+" and there were choices to setup 1) irrigation controller, 2) Hose faucet Timer and 3)Shop Products.  Im  still looking for detailed instructions...

Define Soil Type

Rob and Susan Tartre
Updated at 2020-06-12 02:18:54 UTC 
I see references to defining your soil type.  I have gone through the entire app multiple times and cannot find where that is defined, nor can I find it in the documentation.  There doesn’t seem to be an “owners’ manual” or “operating manual” per the support person I called (only online video help).  I cannot find where soil type is defined.

This is my third summer with Netro. I haven't had any problems in the past.  I turned my water on from it being winterized in October and it is not working.  Any chance it could be Netro or do I need to get someone to look at the wiring at the hook up to the water main?
