TIMB

My post on 8/2 is the last official update.

But just to reiterate a bit…

As of now, all B-hyve underground timers and the App for iOS and Android function properly (will show on the app and timer that there is a sensor delay in effect) with Orbit Rain Sensors. Other brand sensors I have not tested and can’t vouch for but I’d imagine they’d work too.

Two things on the list of wishes I am tracking:

1. Notify the owner of a sensor delay as soon as it is triggered instead of waiting for a scheduled program to start. This is still a possibility but not currently a priority.

2. Ability to override a sensor delay from the app. This is currently not possible on the timer itself, they just don’t work that way. Will we ever change this? I’d like to see it change and will be a proponent for it but there’s a lot ahead of it.

Thanks!

Spread the love!
