    Good Sensor

    Scott Sutton (verified owner)

    Sensors have worked out pretty well so far.  Setup was pretty simple.  Tested each of the three sensors with a wet cloth and it was able to detect moisture and send an alert to my phone. The app itself is OK, but not as intuitive as I would like.  If you look at the video describing the sensors, it shows that it will report the current status and battery within the app.  I was originally looking at Settings/Devices but it wasn’t there.  You have to go to the Home page and click the part in fine print in the upper part of the screen that says ‘Active Devices Flood Sensor’.
    It is a nice compact sensor that fits inconspicuously under a refrigerator, sink, washing machine, etc.  I did get an alert once when it detected water from an ice cube that melted.  So in this instance, the sensor did its job and did it quite well.  During this situation I lost the WiFi connection for the sensor under the refrigerator and didn’t see an easy way to reconnect it back to the network.  So I had to select Deauthorize Device and do the setup again for that one sensor.   If I lost network connection from just a bit of water from an ice cube, I don’t have a sense on whether the sensor would continue to function during a major leak.  Overall, having leak sensors in general that are reliable are money well spent.

    Great piece of mind

    Kim Foster (verified owner)

    Got the 3 sensor pack. One for the hot water heater, one for behind the frig, one for behind the washer. Only took about 10 minutes to set up. Tested them out and they work great. Main hub was placed in the kitchen which is central to all three. One of the sensors was moved from the area and the app instantly told me it was no longer being monitored. Great to know they are hard at work even if I’m not home.

    Frustrated by the silly Orbit dedicated use per hub system

    catjavaatx (verified owner)

    As a word of warning to potential buyers…
    The flood sensors do NOT work with the Hose Watering Timer HUB, and the Hose Watering Timer does NOT work with Flood Sensor Hub.
    Depending on your home size you may need more than one Flood Sensor Hub.
    Apparently at Orbit Hub means ‘a single use dedicated WiFi connector’ rather than ‘multi-purpose central WiFi connection point’.
    The Orbit connected home is one where you may have Orbit ‘Hubs’ all over your home.

    Easy setup time will tell on functionality

    CJeffs (verified owner)

    I purchased the 3 pack of water sensors. Setup is very simple and easy with additional request for min max temperature. Drawbacks are that the sensors do not show much information unless they go off. When viewing from the app you only see the last time sync’d, MAC address and firmware and hardware versions. I have a couple of other sensors from a different vendor that include WiFi signal strength, battery life, current temperature and humidity which is a bit more functional than these.

    So Far - Pleased

    Jan Carstanjen (verified owner)

    Easy enough setup but not sure the advertised WiFi range means anything. Had to move the base station around to get all sensors to function. Furthest sensor was about 30 feet away before the relocation. I would really like to see a way this product gives you an audible alarm and even a text message. Seeing that something happened earlier in the day is not very useful. Product should make an immediate succinct alert.

    Nice product so far

    Bruce1234 (verified owner)

    Simple and easy installation once I found the best place to install the hub so it could communicate with each other. One review claimed that it doesn’t provide much information, however talking with their customer service, there is a way to get much more detailed information from each sensor (I had to change the upper temp limit on one of the sensors).

    For the price, I would purchase them again.

    Easy to set up and use

    Steve (verified owner)

    So far I have no complaints about this product. It was very easy to set up and I do like the information that each sensor displays along with high and low temperature alerts current temperature and alarm status. I was able to place my hub in pretty close proximity to my sensors so I’m not sure if you had to span further distance whether that would be an issue or not. So far I’m very happy with it and would buy additional ones if needed.

    I am sleeping better at night without the fear of flooding

    Geoff Chellis (verified owner)

    I bought the starter set of 3 flood sensors and it took just 10 minutes to set them up. I put one in the sink to test them out and as soon as I turned on the water I received a text and email alert informing me that the specific sensor went off. I have since added 5 more sensors to cover all toilets, dishwasher, water heater and washing machine. I did have 2 sensors cut in and out but the tech team gave great guidance to quickly reset them and reposition the hub. Great product!

  11. Does what it says it does well!

    Karl Loveridge (verified owner)

    We’ve had our sensors for a couple of weeks. We’ve had several internet interruptions and the devices still remained functional without going off–that’s always big issue with products such as these. They work great until your internet/wifi have issues. So far, it’s its been great and has survived through some rocky issues. We tested it and it alerted us within 5 seconds, so should be fine if something happens.

  12. Fantastic concept but needs some improvements

    trbement (verified owner)

    Having had flood problems in the past, this idea is simply GENIUS. I purchased the 8 pack several moths ago and the app is still reporting 100% battery level on all sensors. However, there are a few shortcomings I hope will be addressed. First and foremost is with the flood notifications in the app. A simple “text message chime” or an e-mail at 2:00 am is frankly insufficient. If a leak is detected, there should be a full on steady alarm until the notification is acknowledged. After all, this is the entire purpose of the flood monitor and without a sufficient notification system it’s value is severely compromised. I’m on an iPhone and understand that there may be limitations to overcome. Second, I receive notifications of individual sensors disconnecting regularly (7 were reported last week, which is average). The sensors will reconnect on their own, typically within 30 minutes to a few hours. All 8 sensors are within 40 feet direct line (probably less) of that hub, but even the two less than 15 feet away (but admittedly through a wall) disconnect on occasion. Overall I’m happy enough that I plan to buy another hub (which will hopefully improve the disconnection problem) and few more sensors. This system has already demonstrated its value with a quick warning on a leak from a recently installed water heater. Please address the concern with the notification system and this will be a solid 5 star product.

  13. Orbit you do your customers a disservice when you force us to buy another hub for no other reason but to pick our pockets

    palerider274 (verified owner)

    This is a 2.5 MZ hub just like the one for the wireless hose valve. Both connect to the internet through your home router. I have my router on one side of my house with a small repeater on the other side. this gives me good coverage all around the house. Due to the poor information on this web site, I purchased an unneeded hub with my wireless hose valve when I found out the hose valves work fine with my router. Imagine my aggravation when I found out the flood sensor doesn’t work with my router or the orbit hub. I need to buy “hub2”! Orbit you do your customers a disservice when you force us to buy another hub for no other reason but to pick our pockets. Plus the app only has a “scan QR code” with a large OR under it. Pressing it does nothing. Seems like it should have a link to the “manual” setup. Please make your products compatible with standard routers. Sell repeaters/hubs if you want. We will buy them as needed. Plus don’t force me to buy 3 when I only need one! I own the Indoor/Outdoor Smart Sprinkler Controller and 3 hose valves with one unneeded hub. I won’t be buying a “hub2”. I’ll be returning the flood sensor.

  14. Arrived in the mail the same day the house flooded (for the second time in three years with us out of town.)

    bryanfishkind (verified owner)

    So, 3 months later, the house is back in order (new flooring, drywall, baseboards, etc.) and I’m ready to install my 8 sensors. Having done so, I now am unable to get them all to work at the same time, due to distance, I guess. We’ll see what a second router does. BTW, I love my outdoor B-hyve sprinkler timer and really much want to love the flood sensors. Would like the company of Orbit to also love the flood sensor division enough to put some $$$ into their own app site, versus having to navigate through the timer site in order to get to it. Stay dry, everyone!

  15. Easy Setup! Works in the Same App as my B-Hyve Sprinkler

    George Wilhelmsen (verified owner)

    I love a good solution. My current leak system (1) is a “screamer” alarm. If I’m not home – I won’t know. With the new B-Hyve Flood Sensors, I now have 3 monitors and can monitor my utility area (2 water heaters, 2 water filters, lots of pipes), my sump pump area (placed in the pipe inset, so I get a few minutes warning before it hits the floor) and inside my back door (pit type door with no cover, but it does have a drain – we already got flooded when the drain got filled with leaves during a heavy storm and the drain plugged!)

    So now I have an alert on my cel phone if I get water in any of these three spaces.

    Setup was absolutely simple on my iPhone 8. As long as you know your WIFI access code and can use a smart phone, this is easy to install. The sensors even flash a white light so you can tell which one you are working with. And you can take a picture in the App to see where you put it, and add a title and description.

    I hope these won’t get “tested” by a flood, but if they do, I’ll know it.

    And the Noah video – GREAT WORK! I LOL’d a lot watching it.

    Quick Response time but needs better notification method

    Terry Townson (verified owner)

    Love the sensor size and quick response time! Purchased the 3 pk/hub and the 5 pk since the website wouldn’t allow purchase of 8 pack/hub. This made setup a little challenging since there’s a process required to 1st setup the 3/hub and then add the 5 pk. Overall setup is relatively simple although I’ve had several occasions where the sensor’s dropped off the network and have owned the system for a couple months.
    Notification only produces a very low db sound that would not alert someone leaving you dependent on the phone app. I’m attempting to figure out a way to have my phone alert me ONLY when receiving the email alert notice from orbit and to override silent/vibrate mode with an audible tone.
    The app has a bug showing Celsius although the numbers actually are Fahrenheit. Customer support has been easy to reach via text and say they are working the issue.
    I’m also using the sensors in my freezer and they work great! The orbit engineers didn’t recommend this functionality but it has been working great. Am also monitoring the HVAC drip pans in the attic for flood and temp(they have also dropped off the network 3-4 times in the past couple months and are then automatically picked back up after a period of time)
    OVERALL: A great sensor but needs better notification. I hope there’s an upgrade that includes this function without current users having to buy more sensors since they are already expensive.

    Great Product/Lousey Website

    Conrad Masterson Jr. (verified owner)

    I got the 3pack and installed it very easily. I liked it enough that I ordered the 8 pack for a second home. However everything Orbit does assumes you are buying or getting support on irrigation products. Try to find B-Hyve on their site. They have the worst website that I’ve seen in years. I think someone’s kid built it. Customer support phone number also assumes you are calling about irrigation products. The irrigation customer support has no idea what B-Hyve is or how it works. The app is in the same category. Lots of features could be added, but it is a very basic app. Finally, I find it amazing that they had their initial announcement and sale, but then were out of stock for reorders for days. This company needs real product managers.

      Hi Bob,

      Thank you for your review. If I understand correctly, your Flood sensor no longer works. I am so sorry to hear this. Please feel free to reach out to us regarding this! The sensors will work if submerged and you will be notified of a leak event, but it should be replaced with a new unit once the area is dry. They are reusable after a leak and should be removed from any water as soon as possible following a detected leak, and dried. However, with being submerged, you will need to replace the flood sensor. You can contact us via SMS (801) 905-8260 or call (800) 488-6156 if you would like to further discuss.

    izadinia (verified owner)

    Hi. I have bought 13 leak detectors and linked them to the hub. The problem is that some of these detectors randomly disconnect and reconnect a couple hours later. At any given time, one or two of my sensors are disconnected. They probably have a bluetooth connectivity issue.
