Hi Riccardo,


Please 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. 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 


Thanks,

Hi Sasha,


Did you try other command e.g. "OK Google, start watering"?  "OK Google, talk to Netro Home". Could your provide us more details. If you are using the Google Home APP, does it work if you click the start button? If you using voice command, any feedback or error messages? 


Thanks,

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,

Hi Mike,


Currently Netro only allows one sensor to be assigned to one Pixie timer.  Multiple zones for one Pixie timer cannot be created. 


Thanks,

Any way to adjust whatever the rain threshold is for when it waters?

Hi Sean,

You can customize the weather restrictions now through setting -> preferences -> rain. By default, Netro skip schedules today and tomorrow if today rains more than 0.2 inch. You can customize it, like I want to skip the schedules on the day after tomorrow as well, or I want to skip if rain more than 0.5 inch.

Dear Ken, 


These numbers are computed base on your configuration, e.g. mode, plant type, soil type, sprinkler type, and are  not open to public. Roughly speaking, the low/high are around 60%-90%, which is also a good starting point if you want to use customized mode. The flow rate is based on sprinkler type, a good estimation is : 

mister: 2.0inch/hour

fixed spray head: 1.5inch/hour

bubbler: 1.0inch/hour

rotor head: 1.0inch/hour

rotary nozzle: 0.7inch/hour

rotary emiter: 0.5inch/hour

Dear Juan, 


Spark-8 supports upto 8 zones (similar Spark-16 supports 16 zones). For each zone, you can customized the sprinkler type, soil type, plant type, etc.  For your case, you have 6 zones, with 3 or more sprinkler heads in each zone. So Spark-8 should be enough. 


The whisperer sensor is optimal. It helps to get your soil moisture data more accurate than estimation. However, without the sensor, the Spark can work as well. It's recommended to place one sensor in each zone, however, you can share the data to upto 3 zones if these zones have similar settings (plant, soil, sprinkler, etc.).
