  • BHyve SmartSprink Timer

  • Water Control In The Palm of Your Hand


    Bring Smart to Your Yard

    Turn any outdoor faucet into an app-controlled water source that can help you save time, water and money.

    Thanks to automatic rain delays, B-hyve has saved over 30 billion gallons of water since 2016.


    Control From Anywhere

    B-hyve connects to Wi-Fi, giving you complete control over your watering, no matter where you are.

    No Wi-Fi? You can still connect to Bluetooth from up to 150 feet away, and begin watering.


    B-hyve Network Meshing

    If you want to use multiple B-hyve timers in different locations, network meshing expands the strength of your signal, extending it from your Wi-Fi network to your entire B-hyve system. This allows you to effectively manage your entire yard while minimizing inefficient water use.

    Smart Watering for a Smart Yard


    WeatherSense Technology

    Smart Watering automatically adjusts your watering based on site conditions, including slope, soil type, sun/shade, historical ET and live weather feeds, delivering the exact amount of water your plants need.


    Know the Flow

    The built-in flow meter lets you know how much water you are using to water your plants, wash your car, or fill your pool. This allows you to water by volume, not just by time. B-hyve also controls watering by seconds, making it ideal not only for gardening, but also for hydroponics and greenhouse applications.


    Expandable System

    Expand your system to control one or multiple timers with the B-hyve app. Combined with the network meshing enabled through Wi-Fi, the timers will communicate with each other to ensure they don’t water simultaneously.

    Easy to Install, Easy to Set


    Download the B-hyve App

    Get the free B-hyve app (available on Android and iOS) today by searching 'B-hyve' in your app store. Create an account to begin timer setup. Already a B-hyve user? Log in to your existing B-hyve account.


    Install the Hub and Timer

    Connect your B-hyve timer to an outdoor hose faucet where its Bluetooth signal to the hub won’t be obstructed. Pair to each device, turn on the water, and let B-hyve do the work.


    Program Your Timer with the App

    Use the wizard in the app to help guide you through initial setup. For access to a full user manual, videos, and other materials, please visit bhyve.orbitonline.com.

    Goes Great With...

    Additional B-hyve Valve(s)

    Don't limit yourself to just one B-hyve timer valve. If you have more than one area that needs water, get a couple extra valves (#21005) so you're all set.

    Garden Hose

    Now that you've picked your timer, get a professional-grade hose that's durable and long enough to reach where you need to go. Get one hose per valve/timer.

    Hose Manifold Adapter

    Sometimes you may have more than one area that needs water. A splitter gives you flexibility so you don't keep having to move back and forth every time.

    Lawn Sprinkler

    A smart watering timer is a great start - now just make sure you also get the sprinkler that's best-suited for the size and shape of your lawn.

    Instructions for getting through a poorly designed app and getting a pretty cool product

    I love having these faucet timers for my yard. I have 3 now (one purchased with this hub and 2 additional 21005 units). The majority of the negative reviews are due to frustrations working with the poorly designed app from Orbit. The documentation is not very clear either, so hopefully the following explains how it works.

    The Orbit B-hyve smart device app is used to control multiple devices. You can purchase this item which includes a WiFi hub, the model without that is Bluetooth only (but which can be upgraded to use WiFi with this included hub), another timer that will control other Orbit B-hyve products, etc. While using the same app for multiple devices in theory shouldn''t be an issue, in this case it can be confusing because some options are not relevant for the product you may have purchased, but are still visible even if you don''t want to or can''t use the feature.

    Things to note:
    Each device is separate from the other. You control and schedule them separately.

    Programs - This is where you "program" the faucet timers. You can create multiple sets of schedules for each device. You can have a device come on each day of the week (you can select the days individually), at an interval (every 1, 2, 3 etc days), even or odd days. You can specify multiple start times throughout the day (come on at 8am, 12pm, 3pm). You will pick the default zone and select for how long the faucet will remain open for the days/times you picked. You can also specify a watering budget (which admittedly i have no clue what that does because i couldn''t find documentation on it, it may not even be relevant to this device...so i left it alone at 100%)

    Zones - Although completely irrelevant and not meaningful for these devices, a Zone is the area that the device will water. They each only control 1 zone, but despite that possibly obvious fact, you still have to select that 1 zone when setting up the schedule. You will see prompts and warnings that you haven''t configured a schedule for the zones on the device. From reading others complaints, I think a lot of the struggles would be eliminated if they just defaulted to the only zone available, but once you realize that they sell other devices that control 6 or 12 zones and they happen to use the same interface for our single zone devices, it makes a little more sense.

    So how do you actually program these timers?
    1. Once you download the app on your phone/tablet, you will need to create a Orbit B-hyve account.
    2. The app will attempt to enable Bluetooth on your phone for the initial pairing of the devices.
    3. You should then plugin the hub (choose an inside wall that is closet to where your faucet timers will be installed and where you have a WiFi signal). This device will connect on a 2.4GHz signal only. The signal doesn''t need to be very strong from my experience (mine is pretty far from my WiFi router).
    4. You will then add the hub to your account via the app (it should default to pairing mode).
    5. Next you install 2 double A batteries in the faucet timer (you will hear it click twice as it opens and shuts the valve to confirm it is functioning correctly).
    6. You will add a new device in the app and you should see the icon that looks like the timer with the MAC of device. You will need to tell it the location (which is annoying because you do it for each device you add...or it seems like you do. It remembers what you previously provided, but seems to keep prompted on each new device. I assume this is for people who will use the same account to control devices in multiple zip codes, but why that would be on for most people i can''t understand).
    7. You should get prompted to update the device (one of the 3 I installed did not prompt me at first so i went into Settings - Devices - select the device - scroll down to Update Firmware). This took about 2 to 3 minutes for me.
    8. Here is where the fun / confusion / frustration begins..
    9. You should be prompted to program a schedule for the new device now. You have the option of using their smart watering or to do a manual schedule. Regardless of which you want to do, it tells you that it wants to test the water flow. For me i wanted to do the manual schedule so that honestly threw me off because I was doing this on my couch and I also didn''t want to use the smart watering option so I didn''t know if I needed to do that to proceed...you don''t need to by the way :)
    10. If you go through the wizard and do manual setup it will walk you through the options I listed above regarding the "programming"
    11. Once you save it, you are all set. Hook it up to your faucet and click the icon that looks like a remote and test it out.

    Once you have it programmed it seems reasonably straight forward to use. Providing the zip code means that if it rains, it will / can automatically set a rain delay on (it happened to be raining when i was setting it up and it applied a rain delay automatically). But of course, you can always clear that or adjust it as you see fit which I think is pretty cool.

    There are more features and options but this should be enough to get someone started. The app does suck, but the product is totally worth it form what i can tell so far.

    When I initially set it up it sort of worked. That is, I was able to use my phone (Android and iOS) to control the faucet, set up programs, etc. The app was buggy on both Android and iOS sides, and UI was confusing, but if I lower my expectations, I can say that this at least can accomplish what a dumb timer can do.

    Then, after a few weeks, issues start to show up. The app push notification was completely crazy. It sends huge amount of notifications to the point that I had to disable it. And then the worse came -- I noticed that the plants haven''t been watered for about a week. I then tried to manually turn on the faucet (through the app) and got the dreaded "Device is taking too long to respond" error.

    Then I googled this and got to B-Hyve''s user support forum, and found that every problem I ran into have been reported by someone else and it is essentially a software/hardware problem. That is, the product was completely not ready and was released prematurely to the customers. I know this as I am an engineer working for a major company in IoT space. I hate to say it, but customers should learn from my mistake and refrain from buying this product. The damage done to the lawn and plants in their yard due to malfunction of the faucet is going to be huge. A very expensive mistake.

    And to add more insult, I tried to contact their support through online chat and nobody responded to my chat. My post on their online forum also went unanswered.

    Update September 10, 2020:
    I''ve been attempting to use this product for over two years, and I''ve finally just given up and put the two units I have in my e-waste pile. The software is still terrible after all of this time, even worse than I realized initially. By far the biggest problem is that sometimes, for no apparent reason, the units will just stop performing their scheduled "smart watering" routines. If this happened due to some glitch and I was informed of the problem, fine. However they stop watering and most of the time I''m given no notice whatsoever. So I will look at my plants and think "hmm, those look really unhappy..." and then open the app to see that no watering has happened for the past week or two despite clear, sunny California summer weather. They units will still have working batteries, they will have a connection, and I can perform manual watering. On occasion I will be given a low battery warning, or a device disconnection warning, but the vast majority of times I will only learn that something is wrong with the Orbit B-Hyve devices because I can see my plants are in the process of dying. I would strongly recommend against anyone attempting to use this product, if you care at all about keeping your plants alive.

    Review from on April 5, 2018 (three stars):
    I was excited to buy two of these to replace existing Orbit "dumb" faucet timers. The hardware that attaches to the faucet looks and feels solid, and I assume that it will stand up to the elements as well as past Orbit products. The hub appears to be a USB dongle permanently glued into a power adapter, with a sticker prominently placed saying "DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE". This strikes me as a bit odd, like they didn''t have the time or resources to design an integrated unit, but it seems to work just fine, so whatever.

    I only experienced one problem while doing the initial setup and configuration. During the setup you''re taken through some of the steps twice, entering the same information over again. In retrospect, I think that this is to configure both the hub and then the faucet timer, but this is not clear at all. At the time I assumed something was wrong so I quit the app. When I came back it appeared that my devices were all configured, but I could only connect to the faucet timer directly over Bluetooth, and not through the hub. After a bit of fiddling I just deleted both devices from the app, reset the hardware (click the button 5 times), and started the pairing process over again. I went all of the way through, got up and running, and the connection has been fine ever since.

    Using the app, I have been able to configure a schedule and control the two separate faucet timers I have installed. Each of my faucet timers are using a different hub since they''re at opposite ends of my house and I doubt that the Bluetooth range is sufficient. So, I''m pretty happy about that. The devices work, the connection seems reliable, and the app (iOS) doesn''t crash on me or anything.

    HOWEVER, the software is real bad. First off, the design and layout are just confusing. You have devices, device groups, zones, programs, etc. In some parts of the apps you''re looking at things by zone, others by device, others by device group. Going to the "Home" section of the app shows you the information for one active device, but then when you look at a calendar or zone it''s unclear that what you''re seeing is filtered to only display things corresponding to the one device, or which device that might be. It would be far more useful if the home screen showed you the status of all of your devices. Then there''s just a bunch of bad user interface design components. You are allowed to touch the text indicating the current active device and switch to another one, but there is zero indication of this. The prominent button used to go to the home screen inexplicably changes to a remote once you''re there, while all of the surrounding buttons stay the same, etc. The smart watering option appears in multiple places, and sometimes it looks on and others it looks off, and I can''t tell when that is referring to a smart program, versus a smart override adding rain delays to my fixed schedule...

    Then there are the bugs. None are showstoppers that keep the app from functioning, but they are pretty egregious for a shipping product. Links to help within the app have bad URLs that don''t work. The calendar for some reason shows my watering times, but on the wrong days. The battery indicator doesn''t seem to change when I look at different devices. Asking Alexa when my next watering is seems to give me the answer in GMT instead of my local time zone (I think?). The website basically doesn''t work at all, so don''t plan on using that. The basic options from the app don''t even exist, not all of my devices are shown, etc.

    So... I really want to like this product, but the software needs some serious help. Overall things appear to function (my landscaping is getting watered), and I''m not going to return the product to Amazon, but I''m really hoping that they make some serious app updates in the near future. I''m a bit wary that Orbit doesn''t have the software development expertise to handle this, but hopefully this one was just rushed out the door, and they have some UX and QA people on staff who are dedicated to getting things into shape.

    When this initially arrived I was thrilled with it. Despite a somewhat non-intuitive app setup, I got it working great, accounting for weather, etc. If I wanted to do an extra watering I could do it remotely from my phone, all was great.

    Fast forward a month, and it just stopped working. Although watering is scheduled, it just skips it. If I try a test it won''t connect to the network. I''ve tried rebooting, reinstalling the app, reconnecting, you name it...no joy. At the moment if I want to water my garden, I need to go out to the unit and push the button. Not a big deal when I''m home...but that kind of defeats the purpose of this product. I''ll be tossing it and purchasing a normal hose timer so that my garden doesn''t die while I travel. Sadly now in addition to wasting water on rainy days I''ll be adding some plastic to the dump...

    I received this product as I was leaving on a 10 day business trip so I really, REALLY wanted this thing to be great to help keep my plants alive.

    I have two Echos and have added plenty of devices to my smart home including video cameras, Philips Hue bulbs, and smart switches; I''ve generally had good success and few quibbles with the setup of smart devices with Alexa...until I tried to get this working.

    Let''s break it down:

    PHYSICAL HARDWARE: 4 stars.

    As you can see in the video review, the hardware feels really solid. The female connector is solid brass and has a very nice rubberized finish on it with ribs to make it easy to establish a watertight connection on the input. The battery compartment opens and closes with a very satisfying *FWIP* The entire unit feels nicely constructed. However, I don''t understand the plastic connection on the male side. Why go through the trouble of a brass female coupling and then a plastic coupling on the male side?

    INSTALLATION: 3 stars.

    The physical installation was simple and the high quality female coupling made it a snap to get a nice connection. However, the software installation is a different story. During the initial setup, it immediately went into an update cycle and got stuck (see photo) with no obvious recourse. I was even worried that a hard reset might fry one or both parts of the system (timer and hub) so I waited and waited for several minutes before doing a hard close on the app, removing the device, and adding it again to get it to cycle the update correctly.

    SOFTWARE: 3 stars.

    The software has a nicely designed UI (user interface), but it has a terrible UX (user experience). I am director of software engineering at a software startup; I design software on a daily basis to address complex business requirements and meet complex business processes. Our requirements documents are sometimes 100 pages long for a release. That''s what using this software feels like. There are devices, device groups, zones, areas, programs, etc., etc. and the relationship between all of the entities isn''t very intuitive.

    I have one device. I want it to come on at certain times. I want it to water my plants for a while. I want it to turn off. This very basic use case is made very complex by the software.

    I was familiarized with a term "super-normal" which was used by designer Jasper Morrison which describes a product which is simple to use, obvious in its complexities, and intuitive at the core. While the hardware is "super-normal", I could not say the same of the software. It is complex beyond comprehension because the designers missed the mark.

    If I need a solution to manage multiple zones and complex schedules, it means I probably have enough money to invest in a more complex sprinkler system to meet the needs of my use cases. If I''m buying this retrofit solution, I don''t need the capability to set up multiple device groups and zones and areas and so on; it''s simply a misunderstanding of the market. I have one or two hose outlets that I want the be able to turn on and control remotely.

    Beyond that, the various features in the system are far too complex for what it does. Weird decisions abound like why do I need to set the physical geo-address for each device separately for weather purposes? Wouldn''t it make more sense to set one address and assign devices to the address (assume a use case where you have multiple properties and devices assigned to those properties)?

    The software is visually well designed, but so unintuitive to use. Even to just test a device is not obvious. They need to go back to the drawing board and focus on making it "super-normal".

    ALEXA INTEGRATION: 0 stars.

    After spending time on their website, reading through manuals and FAQs, reading through Alexa instructions for their skill, I simply could not get it to work with Alexa. First of all, the app itself uses "Zones", but Alexa insists on using "Areas" in the example commands. Hmmm....so which is it? Even "Alexa ask BHyve to water all zones" would fail to turn on the timer (but I could turn it on manually via the software so I knew the software was connected correctly).

    SUMMARY:

    I really, really wanted to like this product and set up the integration with Alexa, but it''s just not ready for primetime from a software perspective. I give it three stars because it is still convenient to be able to remotely turn it on/off versus a non remote solution where I have to go outside and manually set a delay if I know rain is coming. But really, I just want software that lets me do that instead of the mess that''s there now.

    Two stars is "I don''t like it" and three stars is "It''s okay". I think it is not quite in the "I don''t like it" category and definitely not in the "I like it" category. With better software, this could be a really great product.

Not sure why the first 2 didn''t work. Once paired, you then have to navigate the app. Good luck with that. I have two timers attached to one hub. The app has the concept of zones and groups. But as far as I can tell, they don''t actually accomplish anything. each of my timers are their own group and zone. The smart watering feature appears to work well, but I really had to dial back the amount of watering it was planning on doing. I''m pretty sure if I let it go with it''s standard plan, my grass would have died from over-watering.

    Tip to customers - Take the time to dig into all of the screens of the app. You can get it to do whatever you want...but it ain''t easy
    Tip to Orbit - Hire some UX people and revamp the entire app experience. It is seriously unacceptable as it is. I cannot in good faith recommend this product to anyone who isn''t a software tinkerer.

    I got a response within 15 minutes of me emailing customer support. They offered to replace the unit. Orbit appears to stand firmly behind their product. I will be buying more in the future just because of this support.

    OLD (formerly 1 star)

    Unit stopped working after 3 months. The seals are poorly designed and cause water to leak into battery bay. The unit turns on and the solenoid valve sounds off, but weaker than when it came out of the box. The solenoid does not open the valve. The unit appears bricked. I spent 30 minutes waiting on their online chat and over the phone waiting for assistance. Their customer service does not appear readily available for assistance.

    Pros:
    - Great compact design
    - Remote access from any location with phone service
    - Beautiful minimalist design

    Cons:
    - Poor seal design
    - Internals are not properly waterproofed
    - App has not been properly troubleshooted and does not work for "smart watering"

    Took a bit of fiddling around to understand this system, but I got it figured out. And it works pretty good once you have it figured out. First, you''ll be guided to update the firmware on both the hub and the sprinkler adapter. The sprinkler will apply the firmware update and turn itself off. I waited until I realized it was off. Hold on the power button for a second and the light will turn green. Firmware was updated. Just touching the power button makes the light flash yellow and nothing happens. Hold the power button down for a second or two. When adding the hub and the sprinkler in your phone, they are not automatically linked to each other. The sprinkler only worked via bluetooth on my phone forcing me to always be close to it. In the app, you have to add the sprinkler to the same group as the hub and then you can control the water via the hub. It''s cool that I can control the weeping hoses in my front garden from my phone. Hopefully this device is durable, but it has been okay with a few nights of below freezing. UPDATE: Make sure you have no night of frost in the forecast. This will not withstand the slightest frost. Mine is now leaking from the inside.

    The first thing I did when I bought this was update the firmware. It worked okay for a few days and then it turned on one night and didn''t turn off!! My Utility bill is going to be through the roof. The only reason I bought this was for a 3 week trip I had planned, but there''s no way I will trust it now. I would have been better just getting a normal water timer instead of the wireless one. I can''t recommend this.

    This product is one of the best I ever had. The app works perfectly. Don''t believe some bad reviewers in which they don''t have enough patience to read the instructions. Both, the hub and the faucet timer have a push button. You will have to peer them before trying anything else. Follow the instructions. The app is absolutely flawless. It is working on both, the Ipad and the Samsung Note 5 I have. No issues. Very customizable. It is showing even how much water it consumes, it is also connected to a weather station, so will not run if is a rainy day, reduce or delay the watering if is cloudy, windy, etc. I was camping for a few days and I could see remotely what my watering does. 5 stars right here.

    So far the product is doing as expected. I’m very satisfied with the app. It has many options can I can add more sprinklers in the future. No leaks on the faucet to smart hose B-hyve device. 4 stars so far. 1 star is being taken away. I don’t know who to point the finger at but my package was not new despite being advertised as such. I could tell as the packages had an Amazon inspection sticker and extra tape. In addition I know it was set up because when I added the hub it states it was already programmed and it wanted to take it over. This caused an unnecessary delay in the programming and set up. The item on Amazon stated new but clearly not the case. Will be contacting Amazon customer service. Update: called Amazon customer service and they were very helpful and made it right. To make it right they offered me way more than I was asking. I turned it down for a smaller adjustment. I only wanted the price to reflect a discount of a used item versus the new item price. Product. After a few weeks the timer is working very well and have had no leaks on the faucet and timer goes off when needed.

    Works really well. I am able to automate my lawn watering and remotely turn on and off my sprinklers. Delivery was fast and the product looks to be well built. My only confusion was the installation process. It says to set up wifi hub and that was fine but then it got lost during the setting up of the timer. What worked was actually set up the timer first as it needs a firmware update then link it to the wifi hub. That and the app could be a bit more user friendly... but it''s quite functional. All in all this device allows you to connect any water hose into an automated irrigation system. It also works with Google Home and Alexa.
