Starting around three months ago, the app started to report incorrect watering history. After many chats and phone calls with customer support, no fix for this problem has been offered. Very Frustrating!!! This feature is one of the reasons I purchased this product - to remotely see if my programs have run.

My Watering program is always getting turned off at the time it is supposed to beginning watering by a rain delay
It really hasn’t rained by me in 2-3 months but the rain delay always stops the watering program

Since updating the app a few days ago, I am having problems with manual watering. The app seems to work OK the first time, but then times out on subsequent manual watering requests. Restarting the app lets me continue.

Text messages not being responded to. Was asked to provide screen shot of wrong time being reported in watering history. Did that and no further follow-up or response. Please get your app working properly. Start by acknowledging issues being reported in the forums and state your intentions to fix with expected fix date.

I figured out how to solve my controller problem. I was having a similar problem as others here; the sprinklers were not turning on. The app would show that a water session was going to begin, and then when the correct time arrived, the sprinklers didn't turn on and then the app immediately displayed the next watering time. The sprinklers never came on. When I finally noticed they weren't turning on because my grass died, I tried running the app manually. No matter how many minutes I tried to do manually, the sprinklers would turn on for a few seconds and then shut off.

I was ready to return the unit because the suggestions of updating the firmware (I had already done this), deleting the app and restarting everything didn't work. I guess I bought the unit right around the time the firmware update came out because that was the first thing I was prompted to do. Unfortunately, that was the problem. My brother has the same unit and has had it for years without problems. He said he didn't update the firmware and his worked fine. We decided to reset the unit to the factory settings, and did NOT update it. That did the trick. Everything is running as it should. If nothing else has worked and you have not tried this, my advice is to reset the controller unit back to factory settings and don't update the firmware, at least not until the company comes out with a better update.

The performance of this app and timer has been absolutely infuriating this year. All I'm trying to do is run scheduled programs--no smart watering, nothing fancy. This thing won't even run programs at the scheduled times, and as if that weren't disappointing enough, it instead runs programs at completely unscheduled times and at totally inappropriate intervals. My lawn is suffering because this thing consistently fails to do what I tell it to. Can't you people even make a sprinkler timer that performs the most basic function of a sprinkler timer? I'm ditching Orbit for another brand, and will maybe even look for an old-fashioned non-"smart" timer. At least then it might be reliable.

The water history graph is not displaying my zone 7 usage nor the amount. I've checked and the zone is actually being watered. I've reinstalled the app from play store. I'm afraid to clear the cache and memory before re-installing. Not sure where all my app records are saved. My original email used when I purchased is [email protected]
I'd rather use my phones Gmail account. It's where the app is installed. Just makes sense.
Thank you

B-hyve xd 4 zone doesn't store watering history. New unit been running a couple days and I've manually watered a few times in addition to the schedule yet the history shows no watering at all.

Jul 13 2022

Since the upgrade, I am experiencing a few issues. Some have already been reported.
The time is not being reported correctly. My watering was scheduled to start at 1AM. History indicates it watered the zones starting at 8PM.
Can't stop manual watering when selecting 'test zone' from the zones page. It stops fine if you select 'water manually' from home page.
Generally the feel and navigation of the app is worse than before. Very disappointed.

By Ricksurly

The app no longer updates the history and no longer tracks watering. I ran it three times today, but it still says zones were last watered over a day ago. Watering history shows 0 gallons used today for all zones. What happened to this app? It used to be rock solid and I would have recommended B-Hyve to anyone. Now I am wanting to replace it with something that works as advertised..

I'm having a problem with manual watering on my Orbit B-Hyve 8 station controller. This is a recent development. The message I get says the the "Timer is taking too long to respond." The zone appears to start and then shut off after about 5 seconds. It will work when my Android phone is connected via BlueTooth but not when connected via Wifi.

I have tried to update the device firmware. It tells me that I am up to date. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the B-Hyve app. I have restarted my phone. All to no avail.

Why did this just start happening? What is the fix?

By Dick Campbell
Jul 10 2022

I was having the manual watering problem also ("timer taking too long"). Attempting to follow instructions by Rick 7/1/22, I found no "Update Firmware" option in my Device Detail page. Does this mean I have latest firmware? (My firmware version is 0033). Assuming I have latest firmware I proceeded per instructions: Uninstall App, Reboot Device, Reinstall App. This seems to have fixed the manual watering problem. I am hoping that other erratic behavior I encountered today will also be gone. BTW rather than omitting the firmware update option, how about a statement: "you have latest firmware version". Sure more user-friendly.

I experienced the same issue that others reported since June 2022. My iphone B-Hyve app displayed the “Device is taking too long to respond” message randomly when I manually watered any zones. The firmware on my Orbit controllers is rev 0087. The fix that worked for me was 1. Delete the B-Hyve application on the iphone completely (delete app, then shut down). 2. Download the current B-Hyve app from the App Store. I noticed the new app has a slightly different appearance then before. 3. Login with your credentials. All the timers and zone info reload from the server automatically. I am able to water manually now, without the "Device is taking too long to respond" message.

Manual watering "taking too long to respond" error. Water turns on but turns off after a few seconds. This problem appeared after last firmware update. I don't know if scheduled watering still works. I already power cycled router and hose timer. I would rather not delete app and re-install since I would have to re-configure it all, and I've read that it did not fix anything for someone else.

This new "Update" is unacceptable!
1) No longer can I stop watering in the middle of a Manual Watering.
2) It screwed up the interface and screen pictures and text. Text is half missing on screen.
3)When I start a Manual Cycle, it no longer shows the running Time and Time Left. It's useless to use this app, now.
5) MOST IMPORTANTLY: It updated WITHOUT MY CONSENT OR KNOWLEDGE even though I said "LATER" on the update AND it starts watering randomly, on it's own, in the middle of the day! THAT'S A HUGE FINE HERE.., UP TO $2000.00 DUE TO DROUGHT CONDITIONS!

Bhyve just resolved the issue with the manual watering. You must update the firmware then when complete uninstall App, reboot device then reinstall App. To update the firmware In the app, tap My B-hyve then Devices. Tap on the B-Hyve device then Update Firmware.

Instructions from customer support: below:

"In the app, tap My B-hyve then Devices.
Tap on the B-Hyve device then Update Firmware."

"To be sure the issues are resolved. Do the following uninstall the B-Hyve App.
Once done, reboot your mobile device.
Now reinstall the B-Hyve App."

I have noticed issues when attempting manual watering. I receive a message "Device taking too long to respond". The zone starts and a few seconds later, it stops. The programed start times work with no issue, only manual watering is intermittent. I see many other users are having the same issue in the last few days. Can B-Hyve implement a fix in a firmware update? This issue is very frustrating and takes away from the features that enticed me to purchase the product.

I am a technology specialist and have taken all the obvious steps to ensure my network equipment is functioning properly. At this point, I am convinced that the issue is with the B-Hyve device.

Please correct the reported issue as soon as possible.
Thank you.

Yet another frustrated customer. Often disconnects on manual watering. "Device taking too long to respond". Tried everything...reset wifi, phone, controller. Connected phone and unit to same network (2.4 vs 5.0). Ran Orbitz test app. Says connection "Poor" due to low upload speed (8Mbps) when Speedtest says 15! Firmware current. Nothing fixes this. This never happened last year! C'mon Orbitz..pay attention and get some stability on your hardware!!

I have an 8 Station B-Hyve controller and App. It is working fine except for 1 issue: The watering history is not recorded. I am not using Smart watering and I have not entered any information about the amount of water used on each zone. However, it would be nice to see the minutes of watering used on each zone. Is this possible? Note I have selected 'Enable logging' on the B-hyve Account screen in case this was something to do with it, but it has no effect. - still no watering history is available.

I have a few issues. First when I go to sign in it tells me my password is wrong. I have it in a password manager and have not changed it. I then go to set up a new one it has been a week and the e-mail to go set up a new one has yet to arrive. I guess they can't set up automated e-mails it is too complex for them.

I also have 4 generation1 B-Hyve hose faucet timers and a gen 1 wifi hub that has worked flawlessly till this year. Now they no longer show how much water they use or even if they have watered the area.

I decided okay maybe they are getting old I will go get new equipment. Ordered their new wifi hub and went out and purchased a B-Hyve XD 4 Outlet hose faucet timer. I'm getting ready to hook it up and watch a youtube video on it. Imagine my surprise when he mentions it is not working on Android products only I-phones and pads. I have been in the Android system for years and I am not about to change or go buy an old phone just to set up the irrigation system.

I try calling tech support it is no longer like they used to be when they were young they got back to you within minutes. Now I have been waiting for the callback for 2 days I get a lot of texts using the canned info in the manuals not much help. I have also learned to set up the new system you have to disconnect from the old hub and timers, not sure how confident I am in them to do this now.

Very frustrated with B-Hyve at this point. Unless they come up with some sort of solution soon I see them losing a lot of their faithful customers as we look for alternatives. I have already started sadly.

I have a b-hyve 21005. I recently bought a b-hyve 21005 that I want to add as a separate zone so that it can have its own program. If I go to the zones screen on the Android app, I just see the one (previous) zone (zone 1) and there doesn't seem to be any way to add a second zone even though the app shows two devices registered. I've seen videos on Youtube that suggest that one can add zones from the zones page of the app, but there is no Edit button that lets me add more zones.

I have used Orbit "manual" sprinkler controls reliably for years. I updated to an app sprinkler control unit and programmed it and it seems to work OK. With Insteon going out of business I need to replace my leak detectors throughout the house and Orbit seemed like a good choice. My issues seem to be the internet connection to the Orbit/B-hyve servers as reported by Orbit Assist but request to customer service for the IP addresses of these servers and the ports used have gone unanswered. They want me to turnoff my firewall (are they out of their minds with all that is going on these days!) I have setup a fixed IP address for the B-hyve device using the MAC address and I have also allowed traffic from that device to to out to the internet, but I know that some connections are two way and the inbound connections may be blocked. I have looked at traffic on the firewall (seach using Orbit, b-hyve, bhyve, etc.) but no luck finding the servers. I have also used WireShark to see if I can identify outbound traffic, but I I get is ARP transactions. This issue is not a unique issue to Orbit/B-hyve but the outbound rule in the firewall usually fixes this. To further debug this issue the IP addresses of their servers are needed to see if the inbound traffic is being denied by the firewall or if there is some other issue.
1. Need IP address of Orbit/B-hyve servers and ports used
2. The temperature over/under settings do do not work unless the sensor device is otherwise triggered.
3. Just because a company sells a reliable device you like does not mean that a new device will be as good (sadly.)

I have had my 12 station b-hyve f for 5 years without any issues, none , zero, nada. Then 2 days ago while I was manually running 1 zone my phone stopped communicating with the unit. The unit is attached to the internet and so is my phone but they won’t connect to each other. I think it’s a b-hyve server issue because they sit between my phone and the unit. Of course they won’t admit it and I spent over 4 hours trying to fix it, customer service sent me instructions on how to fix the issue, they did a copy and paste from the manual. No help at all. Anyone have the same problem?

Have the Orbit b-hyve at a couple of properties. Sadly, my phone was stolen so I can't use the App until I recover my PW. I'm at one of the properties and want to water manually. However, when I attempt to adjust the system manually, the screen is either blank and unresponsive, or goes blank before I can even finish telling it to manually water my lawns. My other system I just purchased last year and returned because of a similar issue. I ended up getting a different one of your systems (no screen). This system is only a few years old and shouldn't, in my opinion, be having these issues. What do I need to do to fix this?

When set in smart mode, B-hyve uses local weather data to determine how much water is evaporated and transpired through your plants each day to know when it needs to water.  B-hyve also takes into account things like soil type, plant type, sun/shade and slope to determine a watering schedule that takes the water to the roots and helps avoid runoff.  When set to smart watering mode, B-hyve takes the guesswork out of watering and utilizes Mother Nature, along with some really great technology, to determine the watering schedule for your yard.  When set and left in smart watering mode, B-hyve can save users as much as 50% more water over a traditional controller.  With B-hyve you can set custom programs to water how you want while still taking advantage of the local weather data to override watering in case of a weather event.  The B-hyve smart sprinkler timer app allows you to control or monitor your sprinklers from anywhere in the world with the convenience of your smart device.  This is bhyve for the best-selling, WaterSense and SWAT certified Orbit B-hyve Smart Wifi Sprinkler Timer.  By performing a catch cup test on your sprinkler system, you will know exactly how much water is being applied rather than relying on estimated sprinkler head water use that other timers/apps use, which can be off by as much as 50%, saving you more water and money.  The B-hyve app also integrates the award-winning irrigation audit tool right to your smart device.  This is also the companion app for homeowners with the Hydro-Rain B-hyve Pro Wifi Controller.  Knowing how long and how often to water your plants can be challenging.  It also accounts for any rainfall that is in the forecast, shuts off the system for rain, then looks back to see how much actually fell.  That’s smart! But all yards are not the same.  This will shut off your system during the rain and resume your program when the rain has passed.  If you want to be the one in control of the schedule, that’s okay too.  ALEXA – Works with Alexa.  Please let us know if you have questions or problems.
