Topic: Smart watering

There are 2 different levels of Netro’s smart watering you can choose(Go to Settings->Zones->Smart Zone)


 1. Smart watering: Level advanced

This is the default setting of smart watering. In this level, your zones will be watered automatically by Netro with smart schedules.

Netro will do everything for you, you do not need to set up the program/schedule.

Netro will skip smart watering and programs when there is large amount of rain(>0.2inch/ 5.08 mm) or watering regulations and manual restrictions.

You can inspect the Smart schedules in the calendar view. They are with the blue water-drop icons.

 

 

2.Smart watering: Level basic

In this level, no smart schedule will be generated. You will need to add programs manually (go to Settings->Programs to add programs) and Netro will skip programs when there is large amount of rain(>0.2inch/ 5.08 mm) or watering regulations.

 If you do not want smart zone schedule to override your own programmed schedule, you can set up the Smart Zone level from Advanced to Basic, which only skip rainning days for your programmed schedule.

Please note when smart zone is enabled, your local regulations will automatic override your own program if there is any conflict. So when you set up your own program watering time, please do not conflict with your local Regulations if there is any. To check up regulations, please go to Settings->Regulations.

 

 

3.Smart-zone feature disabled

If you want to create your own programs and turn off smart zone feature and rain delay feature, go to Settings->Zones->Smart Zone and toggle the enable button. When the smart zone is disabled, the system will strictly follow the user program to water the zones. There is no intelligence here. Netro will not skip your schedules when there is rain. Regulation feature will not be in effect as well.

I really want to use the Advanced level but it recommends that one of my cycles (Plants) run for 49 minutes twice! That's between 4 and 6 am. Why does it recommend 49 minutes? Seems to me that it is too much water. I switched it to Basic in the meantime.

Dear customer,

Netro calculates the smart schedules also based on environmental conditions including the soil type, sprinkler types, etc. If you select Dripper/emitter for your zones, it might have longer watering duration than other zones as dripping/emitter system is really slow in moving watering to the ground.

Thanks,
Netro Support

Could you allow users to set a maximum time when smart watering? I have found if my drippers run for more than 15 minutes my terrace is flooded, but Netro wants to run for 28 minutes.

Hi Julian,

Netro's algorithm is based on expert gardening knowledge, one of which is to avoid watering equally everyday and instead to water less frequently but deeply. Netro waters your garden only when the soil is dry enough in order to draw more oxygen into the roots, leading to a lusher landscape.

Currently Netro does not allow users to set a maximum time. However, you can customize the smart watering. To adjust smart watering, please go to settings->zones->select a zone->smart zone and choose your preferred watering mode. We recommend you to choose eco mode to decrease the watering duration. You can choose "customized" mode to adjust watering by providing the preferred moisture level and flow rate of your sprinklers.

Thanks,
Netro Support
