About This Product

Create a customized sprinkler schedule in minutes with the Orbit Wi-Fi sprinkler timer. With just a few user inputs, it automatically adjusts watering for you each month based on your lawn or garden needs, saving you water and money. A smart device doubles as a remote control, so you can activate your sprinklers or adjust the schedule from anywhere. Orbit's Wi-Fi timer provides complete control at the timer with its revolutionary dial and large LCD display. The sprinkler timer will continue to water on the stored schedule if you lose Wi-Fi connectivity, or you can make changes right at the timer. Familiar easy-to-set technology makes changing your timer programming a breeze even without Wi-Fi.

    Q:What is transformer/power supply spec & is this meant for standard 24 volt AC valves? Don't want to use rain sensor, that ok?
    by|Apr 25, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Our transformers in our timers are built to take the 110 Volts of a common US house plug and tranform it to 24 VAC for use in our timers, valves, and solenoids. You are also not required to install a rain sensor or make use of the Smart Watering's rain delay feature within the app.

        by|Feb 16, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  If you're seeing a "No AC" message on your device, you may need to reset your device. Open the front door, then open the swing panel, locate the reset button then press and hold the reset button for 10-15 seconds, or until you see the screen flash. If this does not resolve you issue, our Orbit support team is happy to go over other troubleshooting steps and discuss whether a replacement is needed. We can be reached by phone at (800) 488-6156 or online at support.orbitonline.com.

          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.
