    That doesn’t solve the problem of being able to add additional zones.

    You do not need multiple zones according to the current info on Amazon. The app will turn the valves on one at a time.

    From Amazon:
    Expandable System
    Control one or multiple timers with the B-hyve app. Combined with the network meshing enabled connections (only available with B-hyve Hub – sold separately), the timers will communicate with each other to ensure they don’t water simultaneously.

    I just bought 4 B-Hyve faucet timers to connect to one outlet with an Orbit 4-Port faucet splitter. I need to know whether the statement above “the timers will communicate with each other to ensure they don’t water simultaneously” is accurate or whether I am going to find myself in a situation where all four timers open at the same time. It is my intention to use the “smart watering option” as I do not want to set manual timers for each timer.

    I am expecting the timers to be delivered next week and am now concerned that they will not communicate with each other and I am going to have water pressure problems.

    So where are we up to with this issue? If I were to go out and purchase one or two more faucet timers, can I program each of them to automatically come on and off and different times to each other? Can some of the times on one timer overlap with that of another timer?

    @ian the timers can be programmed separately and they do work as two separate units. There is no communication between the two right now, so if you were to use smart watering, they would likely program over each other and you would lose water pressure.
