Disconnects from wifi every 24 hours and you must reset by unplugging from outlet. Pointless for being away from home.

      Great hose controller so far. 2 months and unit works as described. Easy interface with decent programmability and advanced features with clear summary screens. Only negative was less than clear documentation of advanced features in order to follow all calculations. Very happy with quality and operation so far.

              Works well. Used for a garden drip system. Easy to use but was slightly hard to get connected to the network. One pair of AA batteries for the season.

                      My auto fill on my pool has a water leak so I decided to try this as a alternative way to keep pool water at a consistent level. For this purpose this thing is excellent. Don’t have to worry about forgetting to turn water off or running the pool over. I imagine it is great as an irrigation tool as well. I also have the B-Hyve WIFI irrigation clock and it works great also. Both the B-Hyve products work through the same app on phone and you can also log into your products on line with any internet connected computer!

                      Have it set on smart watering and don;t worry about setting it for rain delays. Only thing I would like is to be able to adjust the amount of time the water is on. I went through all options available and it seleceted the time. This unit is on a drip system and covers a large are with primary feeds of 1 1/4" pipe.

                      As many reviews have said, the Bhyve app is incredibly difficult and unintuitive to use, but once you figure it out, this device is very smart and nifty. There are videos and instructions provided by other reviewers that were very helpful for the setup process. Now I don’t need to worry about my grass dying while I’m away from home.

                      The smart hose faucet is normally working as expected however programming is somewhat complicated. It goes offline at any moment and understanding the issue to reprogram is confusing. Even thought, I like it and have recommended it to my friends.

                      Scheduling function not working
                      The timer scheduling function does not work. Per Home Depot's request I have rewritten this review. The product advertises a scheduling function. It does not work. The product has manual functionality, which so far appears to work perfectly. The duration function of the "timer" works in manual mode. I am using the free app that is included, and it specifically advertises the scheduling function. I noticed no such problems in reviewing the pro app reviews. Draw your own conclusions. I do not recommend this product as advertised. If all you need is a wifi manual start to your irrigation, this product, along with the included free app appears to work.
