PS. Is it possible to trigger a zone for x minutes from this interface?
To follow up on @ETTMAN8’s comment, the JSON-based API certainly looks straightforward enough to open up to those of us who would like to do the dev work to integrate it with the smarthome systems to which they contribute (in my case openHAB).
Obviously there would need to be rate limits, etc. to manage server load. And, of course, it would be nice to have service (e.g. using socket.io) to be able to asynchronously receive events, such as when watering starts & stops, etc.Spread the love!

Check the status of your batteries. Mine went to off with no warning whatsoever. Took me hours to figure out that a low battery level was the root cause. Once I replaced the batteries, everything was fine again.Spread the love!
Any update on all these requests for an API? The last response from anyone at bhyve/orbit was about 2.5 months ago. It should be evident that there’s a desire/need for an API given the number of requests in this thread.
You could start with something simple. Exposing a notification API, for example, would allow notifications to flow into various smarthome platforms. Once in the smarthome platform, those notifications could be used to trigger rules to perform other actions, update status on smarthome UIs, generate TTS (Text to Speech) messages, etc.Spread the love!
I’d also like to see a published API. I develop bindings for the openHAB open source home automation platform. I’d consider writing a binding for the b-hyve is there was an API available.Spread the love!
