Orbit brings more smart tech to outdoor watering

Techstination feature for Thursday, March 8, 2018

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    With spring not too far away, it’s not too early to talk about some outdoor tech.   Orbit has new smart watering solutions in the B-hyve Hose Faucet Timer…that lets you control the watering of container gardens, lawns and potted plants through an app.   There’s also an expanded line of 4 and 8 zone timers for in ground solutions.   Orbit’s Director of B-hyve and Digital Brad Wardle…

“If you want a smart timer that will take weather input, shut off during the weather, adjust based on what kind of sprinkler you’ve got on the end of it…we’re putting all of that in there…but we’ve gone a step further.   We’ve actually put a flow meter built into every one of these units.   So that sometimes you might wash your car on the front lawn and not know how much water you’ve used.  You’ll be able to see that now.”

Important in many parts of the country.   For more, check out
