Hi Petro, 


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 (Settings->Zones->Smart Zone), which only skip rainning days for your programmed schedule. For more information about Netro smart watering,  here is an article about Netro three watering modes which might be helpful. https://netrohome.com/forum/posts/111

How do I do long uninterrupted watering?

Updated at 2021-05-28 05:04:34 UTC

Dear customer,


Netro breaks the watering into many pieces to avoid water runoff. You can create muliple programs for each zone to water for 4 hours.  The maximum watering time for each program is 60 minutes. If you want to water more than 60 minutes, just create another program for this zone. 


Thanks,

2 controllers with one water supply

Updated at 2021-05-24 05:47:22 UTC

Dear Brad,


Currently the controllers are independent from each other.  Multiple controllers are not aware of each other now.


For users who have more than 12 zones, we are thinking about recognizing additional controllers as extensions, not as different units. When adding a second controller, it becomes zones 13-24, the third would be 25-36, etc. In this way, there will be no overlapping of watering times and users can see one schedule for the day and do not need to switch between controllers.

I think one possible workaround it to add restrictions, for example, you can tell one controller to only water on even days and the other one to water on odd days. Or one controller to only water before 7am and the other one only water after 7am.

For new plant,  you can use the "New Plant" mode of smart zone.Please go settings->zones->specific zone number->smart zone-enabled->Mode->new plant.


Thanks,

Sensor usage

 Dear Ilya,


Netro allows one sensor to monitor up to 3 zones but you will need to make sure the zones have similar environmental conditions. You can go to  Settings->Sensors, select a sensor, go to Zones and select the zones you would like to monitor.

Dear customer,


Please unplug the power and check if the water stops. If the water continues, your sprinklers or valves might have some issues. Also, please make sure you are using an AC power adapter instead of a DC power adapter.

Programs Setup

Updated at 2021-05-18 08:05:41 UTC

Hi fernando, 


I think what you are looking at is the watering duration for the instant manual run (not the user program) in the zone sections shown on the home page. The system remembers the last duration of the instant manual run and displays that on the home page. The watering time for the program remains unchanged. You can go to Settings->Programs or Settings->Schedules\ to verify. 


Please tap on the "15:00" text and there will be a window pop up for changing that value. 


Thanks, 

Netro Support

Hi Bruce,


You can use the instant manual run feature on the Home page to turn on and off the zones instantly. The blue play button is for instant manual run for your zones. You can tap the "05:00" time value to change the watering duration to 1 minute.

Tap the blue button and there will be a pop up window. When the zone is being watered, the zone area will become blue and watering duration is shown in the lower left corner of the zone area. Tap the red square to stop watering.

Hi Alfonso, 


EPA mode allows the moisture level to deplete to a lower level  than deep mode before next watering, and it has  longer watering duration than any other smart watering modes.  We recommend using EPA mode to avoid watering equally everyday and instead to water less frequently but deeply. 


Thanks,

Rainfall from weather station

Updated at 2021-05-17 06:45:17 UTC

Hi Jannis,


Netro sever side gets and updates weather information every early morning at 4 am. Netro gets weather forecast data to adjust watering.  If forecast data is wrong, Netro will adjust accordingly using the historical data. For example, if the forecast data is 10mm for today, but two days later, we got the actual rainfall is 5mm, Netro will adjust schedules and could water more accordingly. 


Thanks,

Dear customer,


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.
