    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  WeatherSense® technology uses your smart sprinkler controller’s wifi to stay on top of the weather in order to make adjustments. Rain in the forecast? The B-hyve® smart sprinkler controller ensures that your sprinklers never come on while it’s raining and adjusts your watering schedule to prevent over-saturation. Droughts won’t sneak up on you, ruining your grass and landscaping; the smart sprinkler controller gives more water when needed.

        So cool! Works great
        Very easy to hook up. Replaced an old rain bird panel with this. Just take a photo of where the wires are on your old one. Works like a charm with our existing system. The controls on the unit are gonna take some getting used to, but immediately connected it to Wi-Fi and was out turning on our zones from my phone in less than 20 minutes from opening the box. And just enabled the skill with Alexa and I was nerding out telling Alexa to “tell bhvive to start watering zone 4”. Definitely worth it!

          Very easy to install. I replaced an older Orbit model. Be sure to take a photo of all the zone wires ahead of time so you know where to land them on the new one after installation. With the B-Hyve app, it was very easy to program over Wi-Fi through my phone and you can add photos on different zones. Highly recommend the upgrade.

          Replaced Old Hunter Unit
          So simple, I replaced my Hunter controller and pump start relay with Orbit b•hyve 6-station and Orbit pump start relay. Take pictures of your old unit, identify your wires by labeling them. This took me an hour, mostly because of installing on a block concrete wall. WiFi was a breeze to hookup, make sure you have a mesh system that protects the single throughout your home - maximized signal strength. The app is so easy to use - thank yoy Orbit!

            Excellent Product, More than what I expected!!
            Excellent purchase, saved a lot of water by having the automatic rain delay and also being able to control from my phone in the App. Recommended this product to my friends, it will pay for it self on rainy months and even get some $$$ back with the rebate. You are getting much more than other pretty looking smart controllers.

            Water Lawn from Recliner while watching TV.
            Unit has a learning curve, download manual from company website, you will need it! Once set it is easy to use, no longer having to go outside to set controller, wifi works great.

            Great product! Easy to install and directly self guided from your mobile phone. The level of sophistication built in to help automate the sprinkler system is admirable, even down to soil type and slope level of each zone.

              I purchased the Orbit B-hyve to be able to control my (existing) sprinkler system from anywhere with a cell phone or tablet. Installation was straightforward. So far I have only used manual setting. It only takes a few seconds to initiate a total system watering from either the controller itself or cell phone/tablet. I like that any instructions from the keypad or remote device will be displayed instantly on both. Very happy with purchase. Installed for one month.

              Works great in Phoenix w/additional $5 device.
              This thing has been everything that I wanted it to be. It has taken the guess work out of the watering aspect of my garden for almost a year (purchased last August, this is June). An important note though—I installed this thing on the west side of my Phoenix home and it gets unadulterated desert Sun for hours. This does overheat the device and it shuts down triggering a “device disconnected” message to the app on your phone which then requires you to cycle the power off and then back on. To get around this, I installed a programmable exterior wifi outlet (also sold at HD) that automatically turns the device off for the peak heat hours and back on for the cool hours so it can reconnect and plan the next days operations. It works like a charm! I’m out an extra $5 and about fifteen minutes of connecting/programming time and it has been solid since! I plan to update this review as the years carry on

                Great for homeowners
                This is a great little irrigation control box. Super easy to set up, just connected the irrigiation wires from my broken controller and thats about it. I watched a Youtue video on how to set it up and that made it pretty clear. Did all the set up from my phone so I didn’t even need to touch the control box once I connected the wires and pluged it in. I took pictures of the different zones in the app to make it easy to see what heads I want to run and can set up the schedule for when to irrigate. Best part was when it rained here it shut of the watering schdule for a couple of days so I didn’t waste water.
