Can this be used manually to leave on the house for any set amount time? I dont want to program set times.
Asked by: guest1
You can tell the app to run it for any amount of time, but only after you've created a zone.

Assuming I can get this thing online, how much flexibility does the app give over watering? I want this to water my porch pots daily at 11 am and 5pm for 3 or 4 minutes each time. Other timers lack such control so I might be brave and give this a shot. Once the timer is set, does it timer still function even if offline?
Asked by: Tracy
As far as supporting the watering times you noted, yes. It can do that easily. Good question about the timer. I'll test that. I would expect it would unless the batteries drain completely.

B-Hyve Smart Hose Faucet Timer with Wi-Fi Hub is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have a combination of low voltage irrigation valves and hose bib timers for the drip systems. ... I have a combination of low voltage irrigation valves and hose bib timers for the drip systems. Did a lot of research and decided to invest in one of these to see how it performed and test battery life. The reviews were mixed but it came recommended by a local commercial irrigation supplier I have known for years. While my "test" is still on-going (3 weeks) before I make the total plunge, I will say it has held up and performed well to date. It installed, updated and connected to my network as advertised. I have a strong wifi network which I am sure doesn't hurt. The mobile app works well so far and seems to have enough features for my needs down the road. I have suffered a couple of wifi outages due to restarting the router. When wifi coverage returned, the b-hyve simply came back online as expected. I'd give it 5 starts but the "jury is still out"

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Have 3, returning all of them I bought 1, had connection issues. Looked for a different option for watering 2-3 shorter times in a row versus having it only give 1 water option and days as intervals between watering. The smart watering seemed cool also. I set it up. Thought it was fine until I changed the schedule and realized it wasn'tconnected. Tried lots of things and finally reset it and got it reconnected. I bought two more and thought I would spend the time trouble shooting them. I set them up and played around and reset the wifi point. Seemed good. I set it to smart water and set it to water right after I left for work. Little did I know till my grass died that it is always "watering tomorrow" and tomorrow never comes and it hasn't watered for 2 weeks. 1 timer says it is "off" but it isn't according to the unit. I Reset it and the wifi point and nothing. So this weekend I turned off smart water and went back to manual schedule and checking today, they still won't turn on as scheduled even they it shows connected and on for 2 of them. So in the end, I'll go back to manual timers and wait for technology to get with the program.

I paid $90 at the beginning of summer 2018; so if you can get it at current prices around $60-70 even better. I've kept a small vegetable garden for the past 2 years using smart pots and grow box's. I added a standard Orbit faucet timer last year, but the one thing I hated about it was the schedule flexibility. Standard timers will typically do multiple watering's per day, but they allow individual custom start times. They are usually "water every Xx number of hours". With the B-Hyve that is no longer a problem. It has been a welcome additional to my garden and prevented me from ever having to go out to the timer to adjust the schedule or do rain delays. Scheduling & monitoring from the mobile app is excellent. You can literally do any custom water scheduling you water: multiple timers & individual timers can vary for each one. Totally customized! Notifications are beneficial and automatically rain delays are also helpful. The automatic rain delays you'll have to keep an eye on. If you know a downpour is coming, it's great. But if there's small chance of rain, you may need to cancel it so it will still water your plants.

The setup is straightforward if you just pay attention. It did tell me the update failed when it actually went through but you'll quickly realize that when you try it again. Yes it can be quirky and yes the interface could be simplified. I've never used a watering system before but it appears to mirror 1 for 1 how a physical one would look like or operate. So that's mostly where people are complaining. The Wi-Fi connectivity issues are all unique to everyone's router setup so that's not the product's fault. I've setup the device and ran it on a "Traditional" schedule for two days now without any issues. It's not the most user friendly interface, but it does work well.

Initial configuration was a major headache- instructions were missing a few very important steps, but tech support fixed me up. I had it running for about 2 weeks, watering for 1 hour every other day, when I lost connectivity to the outdoor unit. Messed around with it for another 2 weeks then finally realized the outdoor unit is very sensitive to the batteries used. Regular AA batteries that read fine in my battery tester cause the unit to drop offline frequently. I ended up using Eneloop rechargeable batteries and the unit now works flawlessly- until the batteries need to be recharged, which is about every 3 to 4 weeks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great as long as your patient. I was skeptical when I bought one since most of the reviews say not to waste your time. I gave it a try anyway since I’ve been wanting a WiFi capable hose timer for my sprinkler system. Setup is definitely frustrating and a confusing but as posted before, as long as you update the timers to the newest firmware they seem to work perfect without any issues. I did power cycle the hub after updating everything but since then it’s been working great and well worth the money.
