New indoor b-hyve timer MAC address: 44:67:55:40:61:1f. Installed 5/2. It was rainy for the first two days (0.06 inches total), and the rain delay kicked in at first.
I have smart watering enabled. It schedules smart watering. But it never actually does any watering it simply reschedules it for the next day.
Example smart watering scheduled for 5/5 8:00 PM. The sprinklers never activated. When I looked at the schedule a few minutes after 8:00 PM it was now set for 5/6 8:00 PM.
I had a Orbit rain sensor connected. So I disconnected that and reinserted the jumper wire the morning of 5/7 There was a watering scheduled for 5/7 at 8:00 PM. Again nothing happened and it rescheduled it for 5/8 at 8:00 PM. I did a manual watering since its been a dry winter and spring. Is this normal?
Other minor issue was it would never pair with my Motorolla G2 phone. But I used a Samsung tablet and it did pair with it so I was able to set it up.Spread the love!May 9, 2018 at 5:51 pm #1587StephenKeymaster
@andersonas25 that is not normal behavior of the timer. I’ve updated the firmware of your timer and that should resolve it. Please let me know if you continue to have these issues.Spread the love!May 10, 2018 at 3:35 pm #1631
@STEPHEN thanks for updating the firmware. The Android app also updated this morning. It does appear to schedule watering less often. The next sheduled watering is this Saturday.Spread the love!May 10, 2018 at 3:40 pm #1632ldas1Participant
@STEPHEN? can you help me? My device has been offline and timing out for the past week. I am still unable to connect.Spread the love!May 13, 2018 at 1:18 pm #1751
The firmware update did fix the issue with smart watering never actually doing any watering. The device detail currently shows version 0018.

I have an indoor b-hyve and think it needs a firmware update. I don’t see any smart watering scheduled.
Also, I can’t select my weather station for adjustments. When I select current weather station, my hyve is shown on the map but not my weather station.

Hell dana you have smart watering restrictions enabled so that it is not watering on any day. I’ve turned them off so it will water. the red circles with the X’s in them mean no smart watering will happen on those days.Spread the love!May 15, 2018 at 8:26 pm #1829
I thought I had restrictions disabled in the app, but I see now that the firmware is updated and smart events show on the calendar.
I have a pws on wunderground but it does not show as one to select. Should it?Spread the love!May 15, 2018 at 11:09 pm #1838
hello dana, i’m sorry but I don’t understand your question.Spread the love!May 16, 2018 at 3:16 am #1853
sorry, poorly phrased. In the app what personal weather stations can be selected for weather adjustments? I see stations near me but my station does not show up.Spread the love!May 16, 2018 at 4:35 pm #1861
Hello dana, if you have include personal weather stations at the bottom of the screen enabled, and your weather station is still not visible then you could backing out and reopening it to see if it loads. If not then you will have to select another station.Spread the love!May 16, 2018 at 9:22 pm #1871
Is there more information on the b hyve aside from the online help? I haven’t found a manual.
What service do personal weather stations need to be registered with for use with the b-hyve?

Hello dana, you look on YouTube under orbit irrigation for videos. You can also use our bhyve help page http://help.orbitbhyve.com/Spread the love!May 23, 2018 at 2:32 pm #2149
The issue mentioned in the original post may be back, ( MAC address: 44:67:55:40:61:1f ). It did work for a few smart watering sessions after the firmware update. Then we had a few rainy days and a rain delay was activated, and the next smart schedule was last night 5/22/18 at 8:00 PM. The watering did not occur it simply rescheduled it for today (5/23/18). So are there any issues with smart watering activation after a rain delay expires?
In case it matters I did have to power cycle it once last weekend. It disconnected from WIFI and would not reconnect on its own with out a power cycle.

It sounds like the smart watering schedule just reprocessed and saw that it rained recently and the water levels were sufficient. So it rescheduled the watering for the next day. Looking at your timer I can see no visible issues.Spread the love!
