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.


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.


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.

The app is great and I love being able to control my timer remotely. However, after some use when I would put a rain delay on, the rain delay screen wouldn't come up anymore so I could never tell if the request went through and I would have to go check my timer to make sure the rain delay was on . Then since the screen wasn't available, to take the rain delay off I would have to delete the program fully and make a new one.

Edit- changing my review back to 4 stars as they have at least streamlined and made the UI much smoother. Please revert the key features back to how it was. The whole update really slowed down the app including the calendar is now inferior to use or even view watering days with the contrast of color. I am now also being prompted to connect via Bluetooth to the timer repeatedly every time I open it now, even when I'm not anywhere nearby.

Bluetooth quits frequently or won't connect on timer. App says you can't program until you set up a zone. zone page is blank except the word "Done". Hub won't connect to wifi. Says it needs to flash blue every 5 seconds and only flashes green rapidly. I've exchanged for new devices with the same problems. This system is great ONLY in the rare instances that it works.
