Sitting on the Green

This once bare-bones backyard is now an inviting outdoor living area with an expansive and lush lawn. New sod creates a green oasis where the homeowner can play and even enjoy a movie on the newly added theater screen. To keep the yard healthy, drip irrigation and a smart sprinkler system is installed.

Ready to Go

Orbit's B-hyve™ sprinkler timer is easy to connect as a new installation or to replace your current system. The weather-resistant case allows you to attach the control panel indoors or out without worrying about water damage and the locking cabinet keeps your timer safe inside.

Making It Easy

The large LCD screen is user friendly and simple to program with easy-to-use rotary push-button dial. Everything can be set and controlled at the actual unit, but this system comes with additional smart technology.

Stay Connected

The B-hyve™ connects to your Android or iOS device, or to a web app so you have total control over your irrigation system no matter where you are. It also works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant so that you can turn on the sprinklers with voice commands.

Real Time Updates

Stay in the know with notifications that alert you when the timer will water and complete its cycle, if it's delayed because of rain or if there are any problems. Even when you're away from home, you'll know whether your yard is getting the attention it needs.

Look Ahead

The forward-looking calendar gives you a glimpse of the programs you or the timer has set so you can be aware of the next watering.

Make Every Drop Count

The B-hyve™ is designed to conserve water while still creating a healthy landscape. Weather Sense technology bases its watering on your yard's conditions (soil type, slope, how much sun or shade it gets) with live weather feeds to automatically adjust your controller to deliver the right amount of water.

Taking in the Weather

Smart controllers keep track of the weather forecast. When rain is expected, the controller will wait to water until after the rain has stopped. Then, it will recalculate the soil moisture and only water again when the soil actually needs it.
