Orbit's B-hyve Smart Sprinkler Controller is on sale for one of its best prices in Amazon history
Keeping your lawn looking the best on the block while not over-watering and spending too much on your water bill is a fine science. The Orbit B-hyve Smart Sprinkler System Controller (opens in new tab) is a great help in making sure you're only watering your lawn when you need to, and today's sale at Amazon bringing its cost down to just $65 is a pretty big help as well. This deal is one of the best ever to reach this 8-Zone sprinkler controller which regularly sells for up to $80.
Orbit's B-hyve is designed to be mounted indoors, such as in your garage. It connects to your home's Wi-Fi so you'll be able to control it using an Android or iOS phone no matter where you are at the time. You'll even be able to use your computer if need be. It utilizes Weather Sense technology which intelligently waters your lawn as needed based on local weather conditions and site conditions. That will help you conserve water while ensuring your lawn and plants all receive the right amount of watering, and since it's EPA WaterSense and SWAT certified, you may even be eligible for rebates from your water or utility company.
Along with the smart, automated watering mode, Orbit's B-hyve can operate four custom watering programs with up to four start times each. There's also a built-in manual watering override on the controller itself which allows you to start or stop watering without using the app. Shipping at Amazon is free on this item, though you'd receive your order even faster with Amazon Prime. If you've never been a member, you can start a free 30-day trial (opens in new tab) to see how it is, score free two-day shipping, exclusive members-only discounts, and more.
