CONTROLS — The B-hyve app is fully functional for Android, iOS or web devices and gives you control wherever you need it. Program your timer on the app, or let the weather-based software create a program for you.

SMART WATERING — Weather Sense technology provides watering based on site conditions such as slope, soil type, sun/shade, historical ET, and live weather feeds. It automatically adjusts your controller to deliver the right amount of water to your plants.

KNOW THE FLOW™ — The build-in flow meter lets you know how much water it takes to water your plants, wash your car or fill your pool. Knowing the flow also lets you water by volume.

BLUETOOTH MESHING — Uses meshing BLE to allow your system to expand beyond the signal strength of the B-hyve Hub by passing the signal through other B-hyve Hose Faucet Timers. This is ideal for larger properties with multiple timers in different locations.

CONNECTIVITY — It can be connected to wifi with the B-hyve Hub or the 2018 version of the B-hyve underground timers. It can also be connected with other B-hyve Hose Faucet Timers or as a zone with your underground timer.

WATER SAVINGS — Enhance your water savings by using B-hyve’s award-winning integrated catch cup feature and Orbit B-hyve Catch Cups (Orbit 26250) to save up to 50% more water than with traditional controllers.


With the B-hyve app and hub, you can control your faucet from anywhere in the world. But that’s not all. As a part of the B-hyve family, your faucet becomes smarter than you ever imagined. Real-time weather updates create the perfect watering schedule, implement rain delays, and give you detailed reports on performance and savings.
