Features & Benefits

Putting Smart in your Smart Yard

The B-hyve Sprinkler Timer allows you to water-smart by helping you make watering decisions based on the ecological needs of your yard while giving you the freedom to control your watering from anywhere with your smartphone.

Easy-to-Use App

The B-hyve app allows you to completely program and control your timer straight from your smart device. Additionally, B-hyve connects to local weather data giving your landscape the exact amount of water that it needs.

WeatherSense

Smart WeatherSense receives local weather data and automatically adjusts your controller to deliver the right amount of water to your plants. It does the work - allowing you to sit back and enjoy the results.

Water From Anywhere

The B-hyve WiFi timer allows you to control your timer from anywhere with a cell or internet connection. So whether you're in the garage, the comfort of your bed, at work, or half way around the world, you can monitor and control your sprinklers as if you were right next to the timer.

B-Hyve 6-Station Smart Wifi Sprinkler Timer

Adding to its legacy of top-of-line controllers, Hydro-Rain is pleased to announce the addition of our most intuitive, feature-rich controller to date. The HRC 400 Wi-Fi combines the easiest to program the controller on the market with the remote capabilities of Wi-Fi. But not to worry, for locations without Wi-Fi, contractors can use Bluetooth on their phone to set-up the controller or just simply use the intuitive interface to program the controller.

A great controller for replacement applications, the HRC 400 Wi-Fi is available in 8 and 16 stations to cover most residential and light commercial applications. For site managers and professionals, the multi-site management feature allows you to access all of your HRC 400 Wi-Fi connected controllers from your phone. Simply pick the controller you need to connect with from anywhere in the world and you have the controls. No more driving to job sites to change a run time or watering day.

And there's more! You can set up the schedule or let the controller do it for you. We've integrated the award-winning catch cup application right into the controller app! Once you enter your catch cup results, the controller will program itself based on those results and automatically adjust for seasonality. A rain sensor can be added to interrupt watering during rain events, or the weather feed can automatically adjust watering to prevent water waste.

The HRC 400 Wi-Fi builds on the easy programming & reliability of the HRC 100, offering all of the features you've come to love and so much more! The revolutionary dial on the HRC 400 Wi-Fi makes programming at the controller faster than ever.

The age of the Wi-Fi controller has arrived with the HRC 400 Wi-Fi!

Excellent controller for a fair price
This controller is extremely easy to use and set up from phone app. I am a first time user and it took me 10 minutes to setup 6 stations for two initial programs. Easy to adjust ion the fly as rain is inconsistent in Wisconsin

Great little unit, easy to set up and install for a novice
Works great. Easy to install. No problems. I was replacing a Rain Bird controller that had no Wifi and was a little concerned it wouldn’t match up well. But no problems. Setup was pretty easy. Very detailed however and did take a bit of time to set up the zones for the smart water feature. The software has so many details that can be controlled, I am sure a more knowledgable lawn care person would take much advantage of the many details. For me so far so good. It seems to be watering no more often than needed.
The wifi control works fantastic. I can see historic activity as well as control existing behavior and look at a schedule of what the system plans to do.

Constant Pump Fault Warnings
I purchased this controller because of the great features, wifi and the mobile app you can access anywhere. After using this controller for several weeks now I am getting more frustrated with it every week.
First issue I found out only after I purchased it, you CAN NOT run multiple zones simultaneously. I have 1 zone that is much smaller than the others and with my old controller I could run it along with any other zone and had no problems. This controller only runs zones 1 at a time. So I had to connect my small zone to one of the other lines to avoid high water pressure, but now I have lost the ability to water these areas independently.
Second issue the controller is constantly throwing a “Pump Fault” warning, and fails to run the programs. This is just unacceptable; I bought this controller to make sure my irrigation runs when I need it. I bought a brand-new K-Rain 24V Pump Start Relay [1522] for my system and that is the only device connected to the pump terminals of this controller. It kicks a pump fault probably 1 out of 5 times it tries to run a scheduled program, and does not irrigate the zone. What good is that?
I have modified my system to adjust for running only a single zone at a time, but I cant have a controller that doesn’t water where/when I need it.

How do you set this controller to run multiple zones at the same time? I have a few zones that are much smaller than my other zones, I usually run them at the same time as one of my other larger zones with no problem. However with this controller it only runs one zone at a time. This causes high water pressure on these smaller zones and my sprinklers are now going nuts. Not to mention working the pump harder.

can this product be operated directly and not necessarily by a smart phone app?
A shopper on May 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It has the controls built into the unit and does not require a smart device to operate it. We really like this controller and the cost was perfect. We do use it with phone app and that works flawlessly as well. Great choice.
Can I use this timer to replace my old hunter timer?
A shopper on Jun 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It may require new mounting holes however
