Is this system compatible with any other drip valves or you need to have orbit valves?

Asked by Kobi March 20, 2021

Answers

Doesn't have to be orbit valves.

"Frequently bought together" is misleading

Asked by ben March 5, 2021
1
Answer

Frequently bought together means just that. This is an 8 zone controller. I know because I have one too. People with more than eight zones to control would logically need more than one of these... so they buy two. If you saw the suggestion to buy two, but only need one, then you are good.

Battery location

Answers

The only battery is behind the panel. It's only for flash memory timer settings etc. No provisions to operate without power with batteries.

Can this be manually programmed?

Asked by Bob September 15, 2020
2
Answers

There is only basic operations that can be set on the controller like manual watering across all zones or single zones, on off of the device and hard reset. All setup of the zones and usage really has to be done through the APP.

Can this be placed in a sprinkler cabinet outside?

Asked by Mike September 15, 2020
3
Answers

It can be achieved by using a cabinet that is water proof all around as well as air holes in the back to allow for air movement in the box. You will obviously be using the existing extern power wire to the hunter to this device so it would be weather proof. The company will state it is an internal timer but it will be fine in my opinion.

Do I need a Wi-Fi hub for this timer to work

Asked by Gman July 13, 2020
5
Answers

Dear Gman: Yes. The ability to schedule and control your irrigation / sprinkler system from your smart phone is the key advantage of the Orbit B-Hyve. Their app is also very easy to use. All of this requires a WiFi hub, for the internet connection. I hope this is helpful, Mark

@Quern5 I have not seen two zones watering at the same time as I am away at work when its watering. All I see is the APP has it scheduled to overlap zones watering. And its seems as its always changing. I did look at the watering history and it does not show that multiple zones were watering at the same time. So I guess to answer your question it would be no to multiple zones going simultaneously. Its weird/confusing that the app would show scheduled start time with zones overlapping. At one point it showed a schedule where I would of have 3 zones going at the same time (although the third would of been for only a minute overlap). thanks

Perfect
Having read reviews on the internet "Rainbird vs Orbit", I had serious doubts on the product, especially the software. Luckily, HD did not have any other product for 4-zone. This was the only product, so I braved it. And NO REGRETS. Extremely easy to install and mount onto the wall. Extremely easy to pair with my smart phone. And the app is easy to use. Just not able to set begin/end dates for the watering programs. Other than that - totally user friendly and easy!! Very happy with the purchase...and economical as well!!!

Excellent controller for irrigation and watering new grass!
This is an excellent controller for home irrigation, sprinklers, drip irrigation, etc. Everything is controlled via your iPhone or Android phone. Much easier to use than old-style 'panel' controllers with lots of buttons. You can even schedule watering remotely - or delay watering if there is rain. We had new sod installed at our home in Massachusetts, which must be repeatedly watered during the first two weeks -- then daily thereafter. I needed to water four zones. After a few days running around the yard, repositioning the hose and sprinkler, I thought, "There has to be a better way!" I found this solution at our local Home Depot. The B-Hyve drives standard 24 volt irrigation valves (~$15). I put everything together in a standard irrigation valve box (~$20) with 1/2" PVC pipe and four hose connectors on the outside for hoses and sprinklers. The hose connections are mounted on pieces of Veranda cellular PVC trim -- which doesn't rot. See the photos below. Everything was purchased at Home Depot. The total cost was ~$170. If you use it to automate drip irrigation or standard irrigation sprinkers, your cost would be even lower -- without the hose valves and connectors. Now I can easily schedule multiple sprinklers and sessions, from my phone! Highly recommended. Mark

Box arrived in a timely manor and undamaged. I opened the box and there was the B-hyve unit, a box contain the wall wart to power the B-hyve, and a little plastic with mounting screws, plastic wall anchors, and a cute but less that effective little screw driver. Everything looked good until I went to look for any printed material. Nope, not there. There are no printed instructions what so ever. OK, no problem, I'll just check on Orbit's website. Huge disappointment there too. I'm a journeyman electrician specializing in control work, I don't need a manual to install this relatively simple bit of electronics, but still it would have been nice to have at least a 1 page quick start guide. I feel for the people who actually need some instruction. I guess Orbit thinks the app is all you need to install and operate this controller. The app, at least the iOS one, is pretty slick. It did make connecting to the controller and setting up pretty easy. I went with Smart Watering program, at least to start. If the controller works as well as the app did, I will be thrilled. Minus 1 star for lack of any written help other that what is printed on the outside of the box.

WONDERFUL!!
I bought the B-Hyve about two weeks ago and it has revolutionized how I deal with my sprinkler system. No more running back and forth between a possible sprinkler leak and the controller in the garage. You can be right at the leak location, use your phone to quickly start a test on the line, and see where the leak is in a line. Such an amazing time saver. I have also been able to lessen the amount of water I'm using by carefully tuning the zone programs based on weather and other factors.....and I could do this from any where in the world. Not sure why some reviews said that it was hard to install and implement. I found both the installation and app very easy to use. This is the best $75 I have spent in years. I highly, highly recommend it.

Saved my sprinkler system!
I bought a house with a partially functioning sprinkler system and tinkered with it forever trying to get it to work correctly. Finally, in desperation I bought this controller and voila...everything worked perfectly! And I have the added bonus of being able to control it with my phone. And it pauses the program automatically when it's going to rain! I've had this for about 2 years and it's going strong. Highly recommend.

I'm echoing what other reviewers have said when I wonder, "Why did I not get this unit sooner?". The app is well thought out and intuitive. I only glanced at the Quick Start guide for a few moments because this unit was replacing an old Orbit manual timer, however, I suspect that other brands are set up similarly. It only took about 20 minutes to mount the unit on the wall connecting the existing valve wires and using the app to connect and then test. I was pleasant surprised because the app makes it so easy to create weekly program schedules. Plus, you can make schedule changes from wherever you are with your phone. Money well spent and highly recommended!

I'm so glad I purchased this indoor timer. The reviews were good, the product turned out to be excellent. It works great and the price was much lower than any of the competitors. I don't think anyone can go wrong with this. It was very easy to set up and install. I had a little confusion setting up the app but got help from the company and then didn't have any other problems.

Easy to install and set up via the APP. Has excellent functionality and its use of the local weather forecast to delay watering when it is forecast to rain is a great feature. The flexibility of the application and the ease of use make this a first class option to replace the standard 'dumb' sprinkler control that typically comes with a system. Installation took all of 5 minutes and an average 10 year old could do this with no trouble, excellent product, only thing I would change is the power cable could be a little longer.
