    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.

    Constant disconnects

    Jim Axiotis (verified owner)

    I’ve had these water sensors for several months but they all daily disconnect and reconnect to my router. I receive notifications all the time. I’ve contacted B-Hyve but they don’t have a solution

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

    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.

    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.

  7. Smart flood sensor

    Alan Hausmann (verified owner)

    love the little discs, do not like the required hub. The hub uses blue tooth which has poor reception and limited locations because the sensors keep losing connectivity. I cant stand taking up plug receptacles with hubs.

  8. Disconnect issues all the time.

    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.
