  1. Not exactly what I expected

    Paul Johnson (verified owner)

    Once you get it set up with firmware updates and on line, it is a far cry from any other standard hose timer. But the reason for only 3 stars is I purchased 3 units hoping to have 3 lawn zones working in harmony. Unfortunately with the hub, the app doesn’t know the 3 units are there and you have to switch manually between units and program individually. That’s my biggest disappointment. I did find a workaround by adding water restrictions to each one with only an hour each day allowed to water. Making that 1 hour window consecutively different for each one allows it to schedule without me worrying about overlapping. Seems like their software could be updated and not sure why they’re not dojng it. Would make it a 5 star purchase.

  2. Useful, but problematic

    Mark Harris (verified owner)

    Having the ability to set my sprinklers to water at zero-dark-thirty without having to get out of bed is quite nice. While lots of people whine about how the zones confuse things (and they kind of do), still, one gets the drift if they have a functioning brain and tinker with the hub/timers for a few minutes. I don’t leave my sprinklers positioned any one place, so I just place the sprinkler where I want, program the b-hyve watering timer, and enjoy the relatively effortless way to water my yard at the correct time of day (while I’m still fast asleep). The only problem is the timers tend to disconnect from the hub and I can’t figure out how to correct it. I have a strong signal anywhere outside next to any wall of my home (like where the timers are), the hub has the latest firmware, and my DNS settings are the most stable I can find. Doesn’t matter. I repeatedly have to start from square one setting up the timer to connect with the hub after these random disconnections. That it happens randomly makes it frustrating. The manual water start (pressing the button on the timer) doesn’t even work when that happens. Real head scratcher, but it doesn’t entirely spoil their worth for me. Beats the heck out of getting up at 3:30 am to start watering, or spending thousands to install a yard sprinkler system!

  3. B-hyve availability

    Joseph Sico (verified owner)

    I bought the b-hyve With the possibility that I could expand it to more units only to find out that I cannot buy it by itself but only with the hub which I do not need also the batteries only lasted two months good quality Duracells
