What others are saying

  1. Orbit B-Hyve XR

    James Braja (verified owner)

    Wiring and installation was very straightforward for my seven zone system. Each zone is clearly identified and the included instructions even had a reminder to take a picture of the previous wiring to ensure that the wires were reinstalled correctly. My wiring already had a single common wire so the included wire nut and jumper were not required. Getting the unit setup on my network was straightforward and within less than an hour I had the new unit functioning and watering. It’s great to be able to control the sprinklers from anywhere and also be notified about the completion of each program. A minor quibble is that you have to drill down to each zone to actually see the history, as the main page is only the most recent completion status. Although there is an Alexa skill and control of each zone or a program works as expected, the unit does not show up as a device. I wanted to be able to give Alexa a command, such as ‘squirrels’ and quickly activate a single preset zone, but have not been able to do so, yet. Although I don’t expect to control the unit from the front panel, except in limited circumstances, seeing the unit’s overall status at a glance is a welcome addition over the previous B-Hyve model and along with the improved Wi-Fi, is one of the main reasons I waited for the XR to be available.

  3. Excellent update in Technology

    Ricky Crist (verified owner)

    I updated from a rain-bird controller to the B-hyve XR Smart controller and have been very happy so far with the result. The insulation and setup was simple and the APP based smart watering feature has already started saving me on water bills. I would recommend this product as a great update.
