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.

Smart Watering
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.

Great app! But…

*edited After using the advanced features of the app, I’m frustrated. The smart-watering feature wasn’t working properly. The information you enter on the zones doesn’t save. The type of soil, number of heads etc. wouldn’t save after being entered. After restarting the app a few times, the glitches resolved though.

It was really easy and intuitive to get the controller onto Wi-Fi and the programming was really easy. The app is a bit glitchy though. I can’t get the pictures of the zones to stay where they’re supposed to. The picture from one zone randomly appears as the picture from a different zone. Other than that, I really appreciate not having to be a genius to get the system hooked up to Wi-Fi!

Broken app

The app is brutal!! The graphics won’t even show up for zones or self watering, you can edit anything and the green lite won’t stay constant on the hose part!? Dam too bad. Not worth the purchase unfortunately.
