  1. Makes watering your lawn a breeze

    Ed T.

    I saw the product on social media and figured I would give it a try. Boy am I glad I did. This has made watering my front and back yard so much more easier. I hear that people have had connection issues but I didn’t have any. I would recommend this product if this is what your looking for.

  5. Where has this been my whole life?!

    Kevin Hazelwood

    Originally purchased the 4 station sprinkler control and then added two hose control units – east to install, outstanding to “set it & forget it” on smart watering. Lawn looks better than it has in years. I travel for work and the bonus of controlling my watering from anywhere is a game changer. Thanks Orbit.

  6. Finally a solid solution for hose-end sprinklers

    kwokyd2000 (verified owner)

    I’ve been waiting for a solution like this for years and it has not disappointed. No longer do I have to go out in the rain and hit the rain delay button if I forget to do it ahead of time. No longer do I have to guess how long to water my lawn and how often. The app calculates watering time based on a variety of parameters such as water PSI, slope, sun/shade, grass type, sprinkler type and reach. I’ve had it for a few weeks and it’s delayed watering due to a series of heavy rainfall. I didn’t have to do a thing. Setup was fine. I think you just need to understand that when you enable smart watering, that you don’t need to create a program. Yes, the definition of “zones”, “devices”, “group”, etc. could be clearer, but I was still able to get it up and running within 20 minutes of taking it out of the box, I can’t really complain.

  8. Great product!

    Bill Thompson (verified owner)

    I just bought a pretty nice mechanical timer before I discovered this unit. I am a recent owner of the Orbit B-hyve WiFi sprinkler controller so I purchased the WiFi timer to try. I’m very impressed with the ease to connect to the WiFi system and I love using the app on my phone. I’m using the timer on 10 hanging baskets of ferns and the advantage this unit has over the mechanical timer is I can water the ferns twice a day for different lengths of time. Just bought a second one to use to water pots and containers on my deck.

  9. Timer & WiFi Unit - Super!

    Lee k. (verified owner)

    I’m old and in a wheelchair, so simple things like turning faucets on & off take extra effort for me. Being in the desert means I need to water my garden every day. I first bought the wifi setup to try out. By the time I got it, they were sold out of the individual timers, so after seeing how great this was for me, I had to wait until today to order a few more timers. These really are great and make life easier! I’ve tried leaving water in the hoses and using on/off valves at the end of the hoses, but with our 115 heat, the hoses explode and run non-stop water everywhere when the pressure from the heat expansion builds up in them. With these, this won’t happen anymore.

    When you first connect, they download the latest firmware version. Easy peasy. Setup was a breeze, too. Make sure you use new batteries and don’t leave it in setup mode after it is finished, as it drains the batteries. I like the wifi option, as I can be in another state and still turn the water on and off. I’m super glad I bought these.

  10. Great product!

    raidermaan (verified owner)

    This is my fourth one. Bought first one at Home Depot. They don’t sell controller by it self. It is cheaper to buy controller add ons. App takes a little getting used to. I am using this for my second house, which had no in ground irrigation. I love getting notifications on my phone that zone has completed watering.

  11. Great product.

    ktcc3029 (verified owner)

    Purchased a 8 station about 1 year ago and loved it. Just purchased their smart hose watering timer. I setup a drip system that I can control when i travel. Saved on my water bill, a lot. Love it. Would give it a 10.

  12. Great Solution

    William Hildebrand (verified owner)

    My property is in a very rocky area which makes digging/trenching in really challenging, and expensive. To compound the problem, my back yard is where my septic system and drain field are located, and I have large mature oak trees, so trenching for an in-ground irrigation system is out of the question.
    The B-Hyve controllers have allowed me to irrigate my entire yard, and gardens (drip systems) with relative ease and considerable savings over an in ground system. GREAT PRODUCT.

  14. I love my new watering system

    Donna Zink (verified owner)

    I am very happy with these timers and I haven’t even started using all the features. I just time them individually and just being able to control each timer by phone is fantastic. So much better than the old timers. I can’t wait to see if I can still control them while on vacation.

  15. Bhyve faucet timer and hub

    Product works great. Easy to use and setup.Only thing I feel would make it better is to let the customer set different duration times for multiple watering times

  17. Great tool for porch plant watering using mister drips

    Richard Rhodes

    Great device to automatically water porch plants. I have 7 of them using the mister drip irrigation drips. I can selectively control water for my fountains, orchids, and plants that need varying amounts of water. If it rains it turns off stem for 24 hours and you can change all of the control times from your phone app. Device needs alert on app to notify you of low battery.

  20. Good product. Solution to automatic watering

    Bryth Halpin (verified owner)

    Setup was tricky as the timer struggles to switch between Bluetooth and wifi. I had to unplug the hub to get the timer to connect to the network. I wish the Alexa integration was better. The skill for Alexa is not the best. Overall, once setup it does the job.

  21. B-Hyve watering timer

    Anthony Antkowiak

    I just purchased this product. B-hyve Smart Hose Watering Timer w/ WiFi Hub.
    It was real easy to install and setup with the APP. I was looking into a underground watering system and this seemed to fill my need as a very cost effective price. So far it has operated as expected, and it has put me into a RAIN DELAY due to my weather conditions so saving water YAY!! It has a manual button on the device that you need to setup via the app so you can test the system without you smart phone getting wet. I recommend this product for the following reasons. 1). Ease of Setup. 2). Has built in connectivity to the web for rain delays. 3) Ease of use thru the smart app. 4). just a nice product to look at!

  23. Exactly what I needed

    J Colmenero (verified owner)

    Bought 2, one for each zone. The app is easy to understand. Setting up the timers on the app is simple and making edits is VERY convenient. Planning on buying a 3rd timer very soon. Thanks!

  24. Does what it's supposed to

    Yousef Ghalaini (verified owner)

    Great product, using the smart watering to try to revive a lawn that’s been neglected for a long time. Waterings are on time, rain delays are accurate. A couple of notes on the app:
    – the navigation isn’t easy or great, needs to be easier to manage, especially when creating custom programs
    – there should be some function that knows what your soil types are based on your address – I find it hard to believe that there isn’t that function since many other subscription services have it (Sunday, Scotts, etc) – took me a little bit of research to figure out what my soil type was based on government surveys.
    – One of my units didn’t work right away, I contacted customer service and they had it replaced free of charge in a week – stellar response and a really great experience.

  25. Love the app and the unit

    Bob Larson (verified owner)

    I have had the B-hyve Smart Hose Watering Timer installed for a couple months now and I have really enjoyed it and especially the Android app. I am a programmer so I loved all the different setup options. Might be too much for non-computer people. I love how it automatically knows when it is going to rain and defers watering (not that it rains that much where I am).
    Someday I plan to get a second unit.

  26. Worked perfectly right out of the box

    Tara Jensen

    I bought this to replace a manual timer that I’ve had to replace every year. I love that I can set it to water any time, once a day or every few minutes. The options are endless. What I appreciate most is that it seems to monitor the weather and gives me notice that I may want to delay watering because of having had rain. I can also use my phone to add a manual watering whenever I think it needs it. I love my timer and had no issues at all pairing it to my home wifi, bluetooth and phone.

  27. So far so good

    Daniel Saska (verified owner)

    The installation and software setup was a breeze. Using 3 timers/valves and decided to buy 5 more to help make sure my fall grass overseeding is as successful a possibly.
