Orbit is the first big irrigation company to offer a smart sprinkler controller, and I’ve got it in my hands.
The 12-Zone B-Hyve controller is built into a weatherproof enclosure and downloads weather data to determine a watering schedule. It can be controlled with web, iOS and Android devices. It even has manual control buttons on the device itself.
I’ll be getting the controller installed and set up soon, so watch for my video and article on that process. Then, after a few weeks of testing I’ll share my review of the device.
