    While I would love to see this functionality implemented, the b-hyve system remains the best smart solution out there. I’ve simply managed each b-hyve unit with its own schedule. Pain to have to hit rain delay on four separate programs but a small price to pay overall. Other solutions cost three times as much and offer no additional functionality.

    PS. Also waiting for HomeKit support which is also long overdue.

    Here is the error I’m getting:

    Request failed: bad request (400)

    Definitely looks like a server error.

    Yup. Here too. I suspect their server has crashed. Do they have a Twitter account?

    @Stephen Thanks for the workaround! So by inputting tight windows for each sprinkler, I can still use the “smart watering” option? I’m thinking of giving each sprinkler two 30 minute windows per day. Will this interfere with the smart watering algorithm or will it work in conjunction with these restrictions?

    Good news that the advertised option is being worked on. Hope to see it soon!

    @Stephen Can you help us out here? Your own company’s advertisement seems to contradict what you’re saying.

    This is a direct quote from the Orbit advertisement from the manufacturer on Amazon (with a pic of a 4 way splitter equipped with 4 timers):

    “Expandable System

    Control one or multiple timers with the B-hyve app. Combined with the network meshing enabled connections (only available with B-hyve Hub – sold separately), the timers will communicate with each other to ensure they don’t water simultaneously.”

    Is this a totally false statement?

    Wow…Stephen…this is very disappointing. I just spent over $200 on four timers only to find out that they will not sequence with each other. What is the workaround? If I am using the smart watering feature, how do I build restriction times that will allow the smart watering feature to function while at the same time ensuring that timers don’t all turn on simultaneously?

    I am in total disbelief as I figured this would have been a basic function.

    I just bought 4 B-Hyve faucet timers to connect to one outlet with an Orbit 4-Port faucet splitter. I need to know whether the timers will communicate with each other to ensure they don’t water simultaneously. Reading this thread, I get the sense that I am going to find myself in a situation where all four timers open at the same time. It is my intention to use the “smart watering option” as I do not want to set manual timers for each timer.

    I am expecting the timers to be delivered next week and am now concerned that they will not communicate with each other and I am going to have water pressure problems.

    Can I use the smart watering option with four timers connected to one outlet? Are they going to sequence or are they all going to run at the same time resulting in water pressure issues?
