I only have 5 zones for my small city yard. This feels like overkill but it's cheaper than the 8 zone at other retailers. Hmmm

I had purchased the 16 zone for my 8 zone home but glad i did because then i moved a year later and my new house had 14 zones. I took it with me to the new house.

I'm planning to hire a guy to install a backflow for the water meter, and get the irrigation system installed, but that won't be for a few months. I'm just going to skip this deal and hopefully a similar deal for the rachio 3 will be available then.

Got 6 zones with b-hyve controller. Going to try this out since city is reimbursing me for buying smart controller.

B-hyve is decent, not bad for first gen smart product. Their app used to really suck, it's a bit better looking and more intuitive now. Their GH integration by is notnthat great, have to say "ask b-hyve" before every command.

I just installed the 8 zone version and it's awesome. I have complete control of my sprinklers at my finger tips. It also brings weather information in from several weather stations near me to determine rain/wind/freezing. It will take this information and determine whether to skip watering for the day.

It also displays statistics such as run time for each zone, how much water used/saved per gallons, and soil moisture. It makes recommendations when setting up schedules too. You can define maps throughout your yard to see water coverage and what spots are missing.

Incredible step up from what I originally had. Highly recommend this product.

How is Rachio better than a Orbit BHyve?

The fact that having physical buttons would allow my gardener to tune settings makes that as a more attractive proposition for covering my 6 zones that I do with my archaic Orbit system. Don't they pretty much provide the same, otherwise?

P.S. I'm in NorCal, so not sure if freezing is something I really would worry about

I just called my local club to check stock, no stock but same price as online.
Since it's a manufacturer $50 off then I suspect this will be the same for all clubs.

Happy shopping Smilie

My guy didn't have a problem. He had seen them before. Worse comes to worse, you run it from your phone when they ask.
