Orbit launches new B-hyve smart WiFi sprinkler timers

Orbit announced its newest B-hyve smart WiFi sprinkler timer, the B-hyve Indoor. This new model features a streamlined design and provides unmatched value by eliminating the cost of a weather-resistant cabinet.

Similar to other B-hyve family members, the B-hyve Indoor includes smart WeatherSense technology that adjusts the user’s watering needs based on site conditions and local weather data. Available in 4-zone and 8-zone models, these WaterSense certified timers provide an affordable entry to smart-watering technology while still offering the same features available in other B-hyve products, including programmable water schedules, and Wi-Fi connectivity.

“The B-hyve Indoor timer represents a major leap towards providing smart watering to the masses,” said Stuart Eyring, president of Orbit. “Expanding and integrating our B-hyve portfolio allows us to better serve consumers with smaller lawns who have not previously had access to smart-timer technology.”

Additional key features of the B-hyve Indoor timer include:

  • Sleek and intuitive design — The B-hyve Indoor timer features one central button to manually select a zone and power on or off the device. This button illuminates when the system is active or pairing, and users can also easily determine which zone is currently active using the display on the controller.
  • Easy installation process — B-hyve Indoor timer features easy-to-wire angled terminals with a slide to connect the conduit for a simple and clean installation process.
  • Bluetooth compatible — The B-hyve Indoor timer includes a meshing Bluetooth chip, allowing it to be paired with other B-hyve devices. It can serve as a hub for the B-hyve Smart Hose Faucet Timer.

The B-hyve Indoor 4-zone and 8-zone Timers will be available in the spring of 2018 for $59.99 and $79.99 respectively.
