  1. Great Upgrade


    This sprinkler timer replaces an automatic timer in my garage that had been working well. I decided to upgrade to something with smart features so that I would not have to worry about watering in the rain and wasting water. Installing the unit was straight forward. I was able to use one of the screws from my previous unit and the built in level made it easy to get it secured to the wall. There were some holes in the casing where the screws are placed and where the wires come in that needed to be punched out and those worried me as I completed those steps, but it turned out fine. The app setup was easy and walked me setting up each zone even prompting me to test and take a picture of each zone in action during the process. I do like the displays on the front of the unit that let me see at a glance when my lawn will be watered next and the ring lights up to show how much watering time is left. Overall, this was a great upgrade.

  2. 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. Easiest way to control system

    bolfikx5 (verified owner)

    I have used a couple of Rainbird timers in other homes, and I was hesitant to get this. I am glad I did. Last year I got two of the hose end b-hyve controller and hub, which gave me a perfect test of the “Smart Watering” features. Now with this total system control I can’t wait to see the results. It was up and running in less than 5 minutes after wiring. It allows you to test, start, stop, adjust, from anywhere you are. No more running back and forth to the timer, you can do it all from the app. I have 5 rotary sprinkler and 3 drip zones set up, all I have left to do is run the zones with catch cups and fine tune. At first I didn’t agree with the way the Smart Watering program was set, but I let it run, and we had the best looking plants and shrubs without ever having to manually water. Enter as much detail as you can and let it do it’s thing. We are in Coastal GA, hot, sandy loam soil.
