Hi Raynaud,


When the timer is attached to the faucet, you can do the following steps to test if the timer can connect to the WiFi router:

1. Take the timer outside to the faucet. Press the power button for 3 seconds to turn on the timer. If the timer is already on, turn it off first by pressing the power button for 3 seconds
2. The timer will try to connect to the router
3. Wait for 15-30 seconds
4. If the connection is successful, the LED light will turn green
5. If the connection is unsuccessful, the LED light will turn red. You might need to move the timer closer to the router or add a WiFi extender


Thanks,

Hi Yuriy , 

You will need to press the button 5-6 times to reset the sensor: 

1. Press the power button once to turn on the sensor. If the sensor is already on, turn it off first by pressing the power button once. 

2. Turn the sensor off quickly (in 1.5 seconds) before the LED light changes its color from white 

3. Press the button to turn on the sensor. Turn the sensor off quickly (in 1.5 seconds) before the LED light changes its color from yellow 

4. Press the button again to turn on the sensor. The LED should start to blink in white color. 

Here is a demo video: https://youtu.be/Vl-VlTkcaJE Please let us know if it works.

Still irigates on rain days

Updated at 2021-06-25 01:56:44 UTC

Dear Anyhony, 


We found you have selected rain expectation. Netro takes the forecasted precipitation and multiply it by the probability of rain. If the result is 0.2 inches or higher, than we will cancel watering schedules. For example, if rainfall is 0.2 inches but probability is 50%, then 0.2*.5 = .1, 0.1 is less than 0.2, so the watering will go as scheduled. But if rainfall is 0.4 inches with 50%, then the Smart Zone will cancel the watering schedule for that day. It is possible that in the early morning the rainfall did not reach 0.4 inch.   We found Netro skipped your schedules later in June 24. 


Of course, all weather forecast could be wrong. Netro tries the best to provide accurate watering schedule even with incorrect forecast. First, we periodically update the weather data, once the weather data is changed, we update the un-executed schedules ASAP. Second, we re-check the weather data for the past, update our model, and adjust following schedules accordingly. For example, Netro may not water today due to large rainfall from forecast data. The next day, Netro re-check the weather data, if no rainfall found and your soil is dry enough, Netro will water accordingly. 


Thanks, 

Netro Support




Fine-tuning smart watering for rotors

Updated at 2021-06-23 05:01:56 UTC

Hi Ken,


To increase watering account, you can choose boost mode through settings->zones->specific zone number->smart zone-enabled->Mode. You can choose "customized" mode to adjust watering by providing the preferred moisture level and flow rate of your sprinklers. 


Also, you can create your own programs if you think the smart watering is not enough.


Thanks,

Hi Scott,


This is not supported. As a workaround, you can go to settings->zones->specific zone number->smart zone-enabled->Mode ,select "customized" mode to adjust watering by providing the preferred moisture level to add/skip watering and flow rate of your sprinklers.

Programs that ignore sensors?

Updated at 2021-06-21 07:50:33 UTC

Hi Jacques, 


You can set moisture to skip watering at 100% through Settings - > sensors - > watering adjustment - > moisture to skip water.The humidity will never reach 100% so it will never skip your zones. 


Thanks,
