About this app

The B-hvye smart sprinkler timer app allows you to control or monitor your sprinklers from anywhere in the world with the convenience of your smart device.
Smart Watering
Knowing how long and how often to water your plants can be challenging. When set to smart watering mode, B-hyve takes the guesswork out of watering and utilizes Mother Nature, along with some really great technology, to determine the watering schedule for your yard. When set and left in smart watering mode, B-hyve can save users as much as 50% more water over a traditional controller.

Weather

When set in smart mode, B-hyve uses local weather data to determine how much water is evaporated and transpired through your plants each day to know when it needs to water. It also accounts for any rainfall that is in the forecast, shuts off the system for rain, then looks back to see how much actually fell. That’s smart! But all yards are not the same. B-hyve also takes into account things like soil type, plant type, sun/shade and slope to determine a watering schedule that takes the water to the roots and helps avoid runoff.

WeatherSense

If you want to be the one in control of the schedule, that’s okay too. With B-hyve you can set custom programs to water how you want while still taking advantage of the local weather data to override watering in case of a weather event. This will shut off your system during the rain and resume your program when the rain has passed. That’s smart!

Integrated Irrigation Audit Tool

The B-hyve app also integrates the award-winning irrigation audit tool right to your smart device. By performing a catch cup test on your sprinkler system, you will know exactly how much water is being applied rather than relying on estimated sprinkler head water use that other timers/apps use, which can be off by as much as 50%, saving you more water and money.

This is the app for the best-selling, WaterSense and SWAT certified Orbit B-hyve Smart Wifi Sprinkler Timer. This is also the companion app for homeowners to the Hydro-Rain B-hyve Pro Wifi Controller.

Thus far I am having good success using this app I will update further when I have added a b-hub onto it. In about 5 minutes I was able to program all my zones using the app through Bluetooth. it was relatively easy. Through a recent update I am no longer able to see if the manual zone are running, the app won't show me anything. And who can be home to watch this thing all the time. Hope u guys fix this bug soon

This app used to be great. But there was a recent update that made it pretty terrible. Notifications are blank (and duplicated), the home screen says my next watering cycle will begin in the past, and the calendar is now useless (you used to be able to click on a day and see the details of what zones watered and how long they ran. Now I'm struggling to even use the calendar to tell if it watered or not). Please make it good again!

Same as others have stated. Worked great for years and then an update this Summer has resulted in blank notifications, inconsistent watering and an allow bluetooth access every time the app is launched. I wish they'd revert it, they obviously didn't test it well enough. I'll give them a little more time to fix it based on the previous years' performance.
