What others are saying

  1. Sometimes good sometimes bad

    Brian Bates

    There are times when it works as advertised and my lawn, trees and shrubs are happy. Then other times…. When bad, it can stay that way for weeks. The technical support line nor the community forum are much help. The “smart” schedule indicates that all zones should receive the exact same schedule without respect to slope or sun exposure. I am expecting the full sun, west facing, high slope zone should water for less time with more cycles to avoid runoff and account for the additional sun exposure.

  2. Great Smart Controller!

    Gregory Gilpin

    Installed a new Orbit Smart sprinkler control box at the start of this season. The set-up is relatively easy if doing a basic setup (non-smart), but gets relatively more complex when you set up the smart features. The installation was standard and isn’t difficult to complete. The smart features have loads of options to assist in determining how much to water your lawn. The app is really what makes this product shine. Control zones from your phone (anywhere in the world), but mostly in the backyard while trying to adjust or repair a sprinkler head. I had a dripline crack and I typically have to take a few trips back and forth to determine where the break is, to turn it off, and then to turn it back on. With the app, repairs are done at the site. You can also water the lawn from anywhere.

    Because this is a smart device, you may that the initial set-up is a little frustrating. I accidentally set my program to run at 5 am, 5 am, and 5 am. After the sprinklers completed the first cycle, it ran two more times and I had no idea why. I figured it out but realized that the versatility is a double-edged sword.

    Very pleased to switch to a smart controller. The controller is one of those things that you really don’t notice as it sits in the background. Having an app to run the system from a phone is a huge step up.

  3. Bhyve Smart Controller

    Frank Iorio (verified owner)

    This wifi-enable controller does everything I wanted and more. The convenience controlling your system from an app, to water conservation via “smart watering”. The orbit store experience was trouble free also.

  4. Nice appliance with lots of adaptability

    Greg Kelly (verified owner)

    The only hiccup in the process was the receipt. Because I was applying for a water district rebate, the invoice needs to have the model number on it. For that reason, the model number should be included on all invoices and notifications. The notes that the order was received, packed and ready to go, etc. If that’s as tough as it gets for a brand new program, they did a great job.

  5. Great Smart Controller

    Steve Hartley (verified owner)

    The controller is very easy to set up and operate via the app. It works flawlessly and has many options. I especially like that the latest model has the ability to set up 4 programs, versus the 3 that the older model has. I needed to group my zones in a way that required 4 programs. I have been using the B-hyve for several years now and am very happy with it.

  6. Very Convenient

    Scott Masbruch (verified owner)

    It has all the features I wanted and more. I personally don’t think I will ever use the manual control panel. The units could be less expensive if it were offered as an option. They seem well designed and built.

  7. Set up

    Ed Johnson (verified owner)

    With the help of a friend the set up went relatively good until u get into that smart stuff I’m an old guy not up to the technology of today so that’ll stay unused but otherwise it works great the old fashion way.
    Be nice if u supplied a user manual for set up instead of trying to get the info instructions on a smart phone in fact my phone never got picked up. Oh well so is life in the past lane

  8. Sometimes works

    Karen McNeilly

    Very disappointed in this unit. Keeps disconnecting from the WI-FI even though the WiFi is working. We were away and had no idea if it was even watering but I found out that even though it is disconnected from WiFi it holds all previous settings. Would think about getting another brand next time
