First Time


It’s been about 10 days.
My Android B-Hyve app continues to run without any issues.

I did have a few minor issues:
– When I used the values button to turn on the valve, then went to the app to turn it off, it did not know I had turned it on from the value. Is this normal? I’ll have to test this tomorrow.
– Manually Watering via the App did not display the Timer status screen. This occurred only 2 times in the past 10 days.
– App occasionally gets stuck on the ‘Neighborhood’ loading screen, with a rotating circle.
What seems to fic these, is to long-press the B-Hyve app, tap ‘! App Info’, then, tap the ‘Force Stop’ button. Go back and start the B-Hyve app normally.

I’m looking for a Wifi/BT Watering timer that has a ‘Mist/Irrigation/Cycle’ mode. For example, turn on for 15 minutes, every 3 hours, between 8am and 8pm. Ot Turn on for 3 minutes every 15 minutes… I’ll be planting Sod and/or seed in a small area, and I don’t want it to dry out.

I found one set of times, but unfortunately, the max cycle values for ON was 1 minute!
Found and just ordered, another Wifi/BT Timer/Hub that lists 20 programs, and a Cycle mode that I think may have high max times. We’ll see in a few days. This system used the ‘Smart Life’ app to add the Wifi hub, then devices to the hub as usual. I already have several devices using ‘Smart Life’, so this should be more familiar and easy.
It will be interesting if Orbit allows this massage to be posted.

I’ll update again with my findings.
