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.

Adapter in EU

Hi, 
I am Lukas from the Netherlands. I have ordered a Netro sprite-6 on without a power adapter. 
In the Netherlands we have 230V AC on the power grid. I am having serious trouble to find a power adapter that goes to 24V AC 800mA. 

The only one I can find has an output of  24V AC 1000mA, will that be ok? 

Or is there a better alternative out there?


Thank you,

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.

PIR sensor

Topic: General

I always find cats dejections on my garden but I  cats are not mines. I had an idea to avoid these cats' gift, installing a PIR sensor connected to netro controller by wifi that transmit a signal to water garden at cats presence. Cats don't love water so they leave my garden very quickly.

Do you think you can build a sensor like this?

I.could be a beta tester ;)

Google Home app questions- just installed my Netro Sprite!

Updated at 2019-06-26 04:16:22 UTC 

I just installed my Netro Sprite and am having fun investigating all the options. After some false steps, I was able to link it to my google home account. so, my questions:

1. When I go through google, do I always have to say "Okay, Google, talk to Netro Sprite", and then when Netro responds, give a command, such as "water zone 1 for five minutes". Is there any way such that I can say directly to google "water zone 1", and Netro will do it (like smart light switches)- I don't have to tell google to tell TP-link to turn on the bedroom light!

2. I know that Netro controls zones sequentially (only one on at a time). When I ask Netro (through google home) to water zone 1 for x minutes, it then asks "what else can I do for you". If I say "water zone 2 for x minutes, it looks like it immediately turns off zone 1, and turns on zone 2. So, does "what else" mean "instead of", rather than "in addition to" the first command? Is there any way to get it to recognize sequential zone commands?

3. I've renamed my zones in the Netro app (nice touch- always hated having to remember zone numbers with old controller. Is there any way for the Netro google link to recognize (like google home does with devices) the name of a zone? It would be great to say "water front lawn for five minutes" instead of having to remember which zone it is.

Scheduled a one time run for a certain time in Settings->Program, but the app didn’t show the run in the schedule and the irrigation did not run either. Any idea how to set up a one time run when smart feature is enabled? Thanks

Google Home Commands not Working

For some reason, when I give Google the command to "talk to netro sprite to water zone for 5 minutes" or "ask netro sprite to water zone for 5 minutes" Netro comes back and says "I have stopped watering.  What else can I do for you?"  It won't do anything else but turn off the zones.  Why is this?

watering usage doesn't match

Sangjin Lee
Updated at 2019-06-21 22:49:22 UTC 
Topic: General

Here is something I cannot reconcile. I am dealing with a pretty big water usage reported by the utility. It says in the month of May I used 530 GPD (gallons per day). I seem to be watering every 3 days (set by Netro).


Compared to winter months when I rarely watered the lawn due to the rainy season, it is a jump of ~ 270 GPD.


When I check the Netro app, it reports I used ~ 3.5 CCF for the month of May. 1 CCF = 748 gallons, and that translates to roughly 87 gallons per day. This is less than 1/3 of what the utility is telling me. How can this discrepancy be explained? Any ideas/tips for finding why I seem to be using this much water? Thanks in advance!

Amount of Rainfall keeps changing

Netro app keeps changing the amount of rainfall that we have had. Day before yesterday it rained heavily. The very next day Netro app showed that it rained 1 inch. Today it’s showing that on that same day it rained only 0.33 inch. Any idea why it keeps fluctuating for something that has already happened in the past?
