Title: Orbit B-hyve wifi timer and vera
Post by: wsyaeger on November 30, 2016, 12:28:32 am
is there anyway, via app or otherwise, to connect Vera to the Orbit b-hyve wifi sprinkler timer? The timer links and can be controlled by an online web account (https://my.orbitbhyve.com/). if nothing currently exits, is there any other interest in developing an app, if possible?

Thank you in advance.

I'm also interested in a solution -   If there is one.

Thanks

also interested in Vera control or monitoring of B-Hyve

There is B-Hyve control via Alexa, so maybe there is a way to do via the Amazon cloud.

Still have not been able to find much in terms of a public, documented API, but I did find something interesting when I was experimenting with enabling the Amazon / Alexa skill.  One of the many interesting URL's I saw fly across my browser was: https://techsupport.orbitbhyve.com/

If you login with your account, you get access to a few interesting features, and prior to this post, there was also means to modify the firmware.  It seems that feature has been removed.  The interface looks awfully JSONish.
