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.

        Simple Install, EZ wifi setup, and worked after a hiccup with zones
        Decided to upgrade from a 19 year old Rainbird controller without a rain feature, to help control water usage to keep water bill down and save money. Talked to my local sprinkler guy and this was the one he recommended. I have 7 zones so had to buy the 12 zone controller. I took the advice of the instructions and took a picture of my old wiring before dis-installing and that made zone hook-up simple and kept the same zone numbers . Orbit App was simple to download, which i did first, and then set aside pending the hardware install. The Orbit unit is quite heavy and I hope the 2 drywall anchors are sufficient (time will tell). Of course the old hole wouldnt work and the wiring was a little different so I had to lower the new unit because the wire screws were at the bottom of the old unit and are in the middle of the new unit. Programming the zones was the only hiccup. I used the App and it crashed on zone 7, so I had to reinstall the first 6 zones-then save, then manually add zone 7 again, then it worked. While doing the zone check the App lets you name or add pictures of the zones, I have my own map, so I didnt do that, but it might be nice for some people. I did all my programming through the App and wonder if I’ll ever use the control box on the wall???

          Dependable, great value. Programming takes getting used too but works well.
          I have had 2 of these controllers for 3 years now. I can easily check, modify program or do manual watering on the box or remotely using the smartphone while in my backyard or overseas. It needs a strong WiFi signal to connect remotely. Mine are located in the garage. Afters I installed a WIFI booster nearby they have worked flawlessly. The Android app is superb; It is stable and easily lets you add pictures of your zones for quick recognition. The unique advantage of this model versus so many others is that the programming information is saved locally on the box itself. not just in the cloud. I will continue operating with the current program if Wifi is down. Power cuts and other outages can stop WIFI. WIFI router can hangs and need to be rebooted. This has happened a few times while I was traveling abroad with no way to reboot WiFi remotely. As for programming, you need to understand the methodology of setting up to 3 named 'Programs, (time and frequency-scheduled events) and 'Zones' collection of distinct irrigation areas associated to a watering port on the controller. You name and save Zones (watering port on the controller) but program them by opening a 'Program' and assigning the Zone to it. In the "Program" interface you can set the irrigation duration for the Zone. While looking up a 'Zone', you can only do supplemental manual watering (Start/Stop 'Test') for any length of time, but that will not alter the programmed feature recorded in the 'Program' is is linked to. This feature is great not just for testing while hooking up the irrigation but also for some supplemental watering during a heat wave.

            I am working a few Bugs out of it, had to reset it this Tuesday Morning,6/23/20, and sometimes Alexa gives it a command, and the Sprinkler does not start up.

            Great in theory, fail in execution
            I was very exited to get this wifi-enabled sprinkler timer, but was quickly disappointed as it kept disconnecting. Finally one day it disconnected from my WiFi and customer support could not help. So they shipped me a new one as they said the first one was dead. The new one worked for a few months and then started shutting off one of my zones. I deleted the zone and reprogrammed it, but nothing fixed the problem. It would turn off and not alert me, so I missed watering our grass several days. Then the other week stopped working completely. Of course, this happened while we were out of town during a very warm week and all of my grass is dying. Now the digital screen simply says "No AC" when plugged into a functioning wall outlet. I have tested the outlet - I have confirmed it is hot and that other devices work when plugged into it. This product is great in concept, but the execution is awful. It has been so much more trouble than it was worth. I should have just gotten an old fashioned timer that does NOT connect to WiFi. I do no recommend.
