    I have a Bhyve 12 station timer for my lawn sprinklers connected via Wi-Fi. We have a vegetable garden that we are using drip hoses for watering. The Bhyve faucet unit looks like a good fit to schedule watering times for the garden. When I look online, there seems to be two units available. The 21004 that comes with a WiFi hub and the 21005 that is just the faucet unit itself. Since I have a Bhyve WiFi enabled watering time working onsite, do I need the unit with the WiFi hub or can I use the cheaper 21005?

    Thanks for your question SCOOBYBRI! Yes the Smart Hose Faucet will be an excellent addition to your yard. If you bought your B-hyve 12 station timer before March 2018 then you will want to purchase the 21004 with the Wi-Fi hub.

    I just purchased the timer in the past week. Will it be ok to order the unit without the hub?

    So look at the manual buttons on the timer itself. On the program button if it has “A,B,C,D” then yes you can purchase the Smart Hose Faucet Timer without the hub. If the manual buttons on the timer have “A,B,C” then you will need to purchase the Smart Hose Faucet Timer with the hub.

    Can you be more specific about the requirements? I think you are implying that if the B-Hyve 6 station (57946) or 12 station (57950) timer was purchased after March 2018, then the blue tooth feature in the main timer can act as a blue tooth hub for the hose timer 21005, is that correct? Or is it the host timer 21005 that needs to be March 2018 or later? Or both?

    Also, which device do you check for station A,B,C,D, is it the 6/12 station timer, or the hose timer? Is there another way to tell from the android app or http://my.orbithbhyve.com web site if it has the support or not? Or a range of the serial number?

    I have both old and new timers, so you need to be specific so I can determine which ones I have that are compatible.

    Also, how many hose timers can pair to the base station in blue tooth mode, can I have one, two, or even six?

    If pairing to the 6/12 station timer, does it still have the 150′ distance capability like the Bluetooth hub 21006?

    So basically the later manufacturing date of the 6 station (57946) or 12 station (57950) timer can act as the bluetooth hub (21006) for the hose timer (21005), correct?
