About This Product

The B-hyve Smart Hose Faucet Timer with Wi-Fi hub gives you complete control over hose faucet watering from your smart device. No more dead plants because you forgot to water them. No more soggy lawns because you forgot to turn the water off. Download the Android or iOS B-hyve App or use your computer with a Wi-Fi connection to program your timer. The Wi-Fi connection allows you to make changes to your programming from anywhere and allows the timer to receive instant weather updates. With instant updates, the timer will adjust the watering scheduling delivering just the right amount of water to your plants; this avoids wasting water with the added benefit of saving on your water bill. 1-touch watering is available on the timer so you can water without using your phone. Add on additional smart valves to create multiple watering zones in your yard, these timers will network together to boost the signal strength without the use of repeaters.

Program the timer using the B-hyve App (Android, iOS, or web) or let the weather-based software create your program for you.
  • Smart Watering: Weather Sense technology provides watering based on site conditions such as slope, soil type, sun/shade, historical ET and live weather feeds. It automatically adjusts your controller to deliver the right amount of water to your plants.

        Q:If I want a 4 splitter to attach at main hose and this set has gateway can I add more hives on each of the splitters for different hoses. Will this work and can I use the gateway for each? Where do I find the bhives without gateways?

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hey Jes, You can use up to 64 Hose timers (product number 21005) with the 1st generation Wi-Fi hub. If you have a splitter attached to your spigot you could add a hose timer to each end and set them all the run at different times so that they will also receive adequate water pressure from that spigot.

          I'll give it five stars however the two double A batteries don't seem to last very long due to the unit doing its thing. I will eventually upgrade to the plug in type eventually from Orbit B-Hyve

          Others have posted about problems with connectivity, I've had a very different experience. I already have the B-Hyve 6 valve timer for my irrigation valves, so the app was already installed on my phone and working. I was able to easily find the router in the app, and then the faucet timer also appeared and automatically updated the firmware. It's been working perfectly for 6 weeks since the original setup, and I just added a second hose timer to the router with the same positive experience. The app itself is very flexible with schedules, manual controls, and weather based smart watering influence. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this timer.

            So far, and it’s only been a few mostly damp months, this is a great product. I bought this for a simple drip irrigation system that was needed for some flowers and shrubs in my new front yard. It avoids the whole issue of plumbing and electrical connections that normally come with irrigation systems. Easy to program and install and great to operate with your phone. You can water from anywhere in the world. The automatic weather monitoring and rain delay features are awesome. Only the lack of long term experience prevents me from assigning 5 stars.

            Illogical Human-Machine Interface; Too Many Bluetooth/WiFi Signal Dropouts; Too Much Time Wasted Rebooting Timers
            Using the B-Hyve Timers and WiFi/Bluetooth Hub is an exercise in frustration. The software requires a random walk through many pages in order to control more than one timer. It was apparently adapted from an earlier, single timer system and not designed from the ground up. In addition the system is unstable when more than one timer is connected to the Hub. One or the other timer is constantly disconnecting and will not reconnect until I walk out to the garden and physically reboot it. If I had not received the Timer/Hub as a Christmas gift I would take it and the second timer I purchased myself to the basement and work both of them over with a hammer.

              Requires some technical skills and knowledge.
              After reading many of the reviews I was hesitant to purchase this item. However, it quickly became apparent that most of the bad reviews are because users are not technically inclined. It works as advertised. The app is a little clunky and not the best UI but it does the job.

                I consider myself reasonably tech savvy. This product is a failure and waste of my time.

                  Great product battery doesn't last all watering season though. 2 AA battiers work the faucet device and have to be replaced a couple times a season and there is no warning they need to be replaced you have to find out by looking and seeing that last time it was watered and your schedule is off.
