The b·hyve smart sprinkler timer app allows you to control or monitor your sprinklers from anywhere in the world with the convenience of your smart device.
Knowing how long and how often to water your plants can be challenging. When set to smart watering mode, b·hyve takes the guesswork out of watering and utilizes Mother Nature, along with some really great technology, to determine the watering schedule for your yard. When set and left in smart watering mode, b·hyve can save users as much as 50% more water over a traditional controller.
When set in smart mode, b·hyve uses local weather data to determine how much water is evaporated and transpired through your plants each day to know when it needs to water. It also accounts for any rainfall that is in the forecast, shuts off the system for rain, then looks back to see how much actually fell. That’s smart! But all yards are not the same. b·hyve also takes into account things like soil type, plant type, sun/shade and slope to determine a watering schedule that takes the water to the roots and helps avoid runoff.
If you want to be the one in control of the schedule, that’s okay too. With b·hyve you can set custom programs to water how you want while still taking advantage of the local weather data to override watering in case of a weather event. This will shut off your system during the rain and resume your program when the rain has passed. That’s smart!
Integrated Irrigation Audit Tool
The b·hyve app also integrates the award-winning irrigation audit tool right to your smart device. By performing a catch cup test on your sprinkler system, you will know exactly how much water is being applied rather than relying on estimated sprinkler head water use that other timers/apps use, which can be off by as much as 50%, saving you more water and money.
This is the app for the best-selling, WaterSense and SWAT certified Orbit B-hyve Smart Wifi Sprinkler Timer. This is also the companion app for homeowners with the Hydro-Rain B·hyve Pro Wifi Controller.

We really love our b-hyve. We’ve had it for about 2 years now, and since this is our recreational home it is really important to us.
We also have cameras in the yard so we can also check the accuracy of the unit. And prove that it is running smoothly.
They did recently change to a new app which through the app off. But we reloaded the app and back in business. I highly rate the b-hive....
Interface intéressante mais...
Je suis vraiment agréablement surpris de la qualité et de la fonctionnalité! La traduction en français n’est pas bonne par contre. La programmation est loin d’être flexible et simple. On dirait un héritage de la technologie des années 1980... Il manque plusieurs fonctionnalités: notification au début d’un arrosage (pas seulement à la fin!) et forcer l’irrigation d’une zone malgré la pluie (jardinières accrochées sous le porche=pas de pluie). Voilà ! Sinon, ça n’est pas le plus beau produit mais c’est de loin le meilleur ratio qualité/fonctionnalités/prix. Ah, et votre support à la clientèle est inexistant: c’est le seul moyen que j’ai trouvé pour vous joindre... English: I am very happy about the quality and functionality! Some translation in French is not good but it is getting better. The programming is really confusing and seems inherited from the 1980’s hardware limitations. There are few missing functionalities: notification when a watering starts and the possibility of removing the rain delays/weather control on specific zones (I have some suspended plants on the porch that never gets rain: they don’t care if it rains for a week ...). It’s not the cutest product but definitely the best value for the quality/functionality available. Your customer service is pretty much inexistant (nowhere we can “join you”.
This has to be the worst product I have ever used. It works for a few days and then it either will say the Wi-Fi is disconnected, or it will save the timer is disconnected from the Wi-Fi bridge. You set it all up again and then a week later you look and realize it hasn’t watered once yet the app shows that it has. You click again and it says you are disconnected and can’t connect to the timer. I have had to factory reset these timers so many times that I finally gave up and Amazon let me return all four of them even though I bought them a year ago.
