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.

Lots of potential...awful performance. My experience started out great: I set everything up, and it worked just like I'd hoped - I had control of my irrigation from anywhere! Then I made the mistake of saying out loud, "It's so nice to find a product that actually works like it's supposed to!" I kid you not, since that day, I've had nothing but problems with the app/devices. The devices will lose connectivity once/twice a month, and the only solution appears to be removal/reinstallation. Boooo!

Thank you for you review! Is there anything that could possibly align with the connection issues you are having? Internet/power goes out? Certain watering events? Also, Which type of device do you have?

I love this device and the fact that it takes all of the guesswork out of watering your lawn! Connect it to your daily forecast and it will do everything else for you; it doesn't get any easier!!! The set up and install was extremely easy, and only took about 30min from start to finish (running test on every zone and signed out of app fast!) I definitely recommend this product to anyone who wants a system that is truly just install, set your preferences in the app, and then forget!

This is my 2nd summer using B-Hyve. Many option settings which is good, yet also provides some confusion when setting up watering programs. Seems like there are multiple ways to do the same thing. This year, i can't seem to find the options for setting input to the rain delay, and can't get the watering history view to show the number of gallons used. I guess that's why tech support exists!!
