The smart Orbit B-hyve Hose Faucet Timer (starting at $69) allows consumers to automate, manage and optimize the entire watering process all from their phones or using the device¹s smarts. Whether that is potted plants, container gardens and lawns, B-hyve Hose Faucet makes it easy to control. It is the first and only smart, EPA WaterSense-certified faucet timer on the market, saving water while maintaining a lush landscape managed from anywhere with a cellular or internet connection.
Working similar to the hose faucet timer, the Orbit B-Hyve (starting at $99) is for homeowners with an in-ground sprinkling system. It can be controlled with a smartphone, Amazon Alexa or on the controller itself. It is truly a plug-and-play that is easy to install and leave alone.
The B-hyve Hose Faucet timer is the first and only smart, EPA WaterSense-certified faucet timer on the market. It saves water while maintaining a lush landscape that can be managed from anywhere with a cellular or internet connection. B-hyve products also include proprietary Smart WeatherSense technology that receive local weather and soil data and automatically adjusts the controller to deliver the right amount of water to plants and lawns.
Additional features include:
- Custom smart watering schedule – Users can choose the level of automation and monitoring they’re most comfortable with.
- Built-in Flow Meter – B-hyve tells users how much water they’re using and allows them to program specific amounts. It can also be programmed by time.
- Integrated, “Daisy Chain” System – Multiple B-hyve timers can be connected to one B-hyve Hub. This allows users to coordinate all of their watering needs on one system, while providing the flexibility to set different timers as disparate “zones.”
