  1. Great Concept

    [email protected]

    I bought this for my pool fill line. I put the WI-FI hub on an inside wall next to the fill valve. Device works great via Bluetooth. But when I try to use via WIFI (ie remotely) it fails to work. The app will show it starting, but it never actually does. If I pull the batteries and hard reboot the device then it work… for a little while. Bluetooth always works, but that defeats the remote usage ability. I have excellent WiFi coverage in my house.

  2. Good concept, not fully baked , perhaps a BETA product.

    Jim (verified owner)

    Pros:
    1. Was relatively easy to install and activate. Followed the directions.
    2. Competitive price.
    3. The secret Tech Support online site where you can log into your system is cool once you learn about it.

    CONS:
    1. ORBIT will only sell you their combo product with the hub, they are ‘out of stock’ on the standalone B-Hyve BT Timer units.
    2. New batteries lasted 5 weeks after installation in one of my timers. The other is working after 12 weeks. Five (5) weeks is UNSAT.
    3. Customer support is difficult and frustrating. The ONLY way I was able to reach Customer Support was to hang-on HOLD 40 minutes on the 800 support line. I NEVER received a response from ORBIT from their suggested email and fill-in-the-question form for support. Some days the Customer Service Line would just hang-up on me.
    4. Timer units randomly stop working and you won’t know it unless you check the logs. ORBIT Tech support could never explain why it stopped.
    5. Smart Watering OFF, Rain Delays OFF. Timers set to water the palms trees 2x every day . Unit randomly goes into RAIN DELAY mode or 100% Water Saturation and stops watering.
    5. APP Design is fairly complex/powerful and there is NO HELP or walk-through for the more complicated watering tuning modes.
    6. Documentation links provided in the start-up guide take you to wrong products. I never could find the B-HYVE documents they described were available online.

  3. Good remote timer, but smart watering doesn't work well

    Mayday

    I got this as a cheaper alternative to the Eve aqua. I do like the product overall, but there is one feature I just do not like at all which is Smart Watering. This is supposed to be based on the weather, but here is the truth. If the threat of rain is in the forecast, it will not water. When the rain is 10 miles north and there was no rain on your lawn, it will brown and die. I switched it to just do a timed based watering and disabled the smart watering. I would prefer if this feature used a more reliable weather API, maybe weather underground’s API, and tried to gather how much rain will or how much rain did fall. The actuals would prove all the difference between a green lawn and a brown lawn. The “smart” feature needs to be smarter. The other option would be to allow this product to interface with a digital rain meter or even a weather station. The Tempest weather station will record how much rain was received today and yesterday and could recalculate based on that amount. I ended up moving this product to my garden that can tolerate the extra watering.
