FYI, if you’re trying to watch the live flow rate on the app (while watering) with the app connected to your B-Hyve hub/wi-fi, the flow rate displayed will be *far* lower than reality, like half. However, the total gallons used will be correct (which just shows the app is multiplying your calibrated flow rate X runtime, not counting actual gallons going through the device during that watering session).

But if you connect directly to the timer via Bluetooth and start a manual watering cycle, the flow rate will show the correct value. Weirdly, doing the flow calibration through the hub/wi-fi works fine (reports correct value after 10 second test). Unsure why the “live” rate is so low.

I confirmed with Orbit support that this is a bug.
