Smart Watering VS WeatherSense

Smart Watering #

Our Smart Watering system utilizes your manual input on specific lawn characteristics like soil type, sprinkler head count, and sunlight exposure in each zone. By integrating this data with local weather information, it tailors a water-efficient program for your yard.

WeatherSense™ #

When WeatherSense detects adverse weather conditions, it will automatically pause watering to protect your plants. By adjusting the customizable thresholds for rain forecasts, wind speeds, and freezing temperatures, users can ensure their garden is well cared for. Access these settings in the app under device details by navigating to the “My B-hyve” tab, selecting your device, and choosing “Weather Adjustments”.

For instance, if you set the threshold to delay watering for a forecast with a higher than 30% chance of rain, over 0.13in. of rain, 20MPH wind gusts, or temperatures below 37 degrees, WeatherSense will intelligently delay your watering schedule to keep your plants healthy and thriving.
