If you’re considering installation automatic irrigation to your home garden or lawn, you can’t go past the Orbit B-hyve Smart Irrigation Controller for easy of use and installation.
The Orbit B-hyve Wi-Fi Smart Irrigation Controller is perfect for an entry level controller if you’re just starting out down the path of home irrigation.
What is a Smart Wi-Fi Controller?
Unlike a traditional tap timer or irrigation controller, a smart Wi-Fi controller has the capability of being connected to the internet. With the use of an app supplied by the manufacturer, you are able to control your irrigation controller via your smart phone or tablet.
You could literally be anywhere in the world and override the settings on your irrigation controller.
For example, if your irrigation is set to automatically come on at 4pm on a Tuesday afternoon, you’re at work and a storm rolls in sending down a bucket load of rain, you can manually stop the irrigation controller from coming on.
Same as if you don’t have it set to come on at a particular time and it’s been a bit dry in between waterings, you can manually set it to turn on when you like.
Another great feature of a smart Wi-Fi controller is that you can set zones, for example, a zone for a turfed area, a zone for plants that don’t need much water or a zone for plants that do need more water. All of these features can be easily set on the Orbit B-Hyve Smart Wi-Fi Controller.
