Product Description

Hydro-Rain’s HRC 400 B-Hyve Wifi Controller is an evolution in irrigation controllers. It combines the easiest to program timers industry wide with the remote capabilities of wifi. For locations without wifi, Installers can use Bluetooth on their phone to set-up the timer or just simply use the intuitive timer interface to program the timer.


Smart WeatherSenseTM receives local weather data and automatically adjusts the controller to deliver the right amount of water to your plants.

The Hydro-Rain B-Hyve Pro Wifi Sprinkler Controller lets you monitor and control your landscape/gardens from anywhere in the world, right from your smartphone, tablet or computer. Or simply set it to smart water and let mother nature determine the watering schedule. 

B-Hyve allows you to control multiple B-Hyve controllers from one location.  For the contractor, B-Hyve Pro allows you to maintain and schedule systems without costly travel or house calls. No more driving back and forth for simple programming changes. You can add an unlimited number of controllers to your account and easily access them through your account listing or use the proximity property function in the app to find clients close to your current location. WeatherSenseTM technology accesses real-time local weather and soil data to ensure that lawns and gardens get exactly the water they need.
