Mine still does it, every time the power goes out. Firmware 0039, model WT25G2H-0001. Sigh.Spread the love!
Does not appear to be the case any longer…Spread the love!
This is the same as my observation, still behaving the same.
My firmware hasn’t been updated in the last year and a half or two years (still version 39 which I believe is the latest), so I’m not surprised it hasn’t been fixed.Spread the love!
Yes, this ^.
I suspect what JSEYMOUR describes is exactly what happens. Power goes out and comes back on, B-hyve tries to reconnect to wi-fi (or internet) that hasn’t yet come back (router still re-booting), B-hyve gives up and calls itself “offline”, B-hyve doesn’t try to reconnect beyond that point, email message received that controller is offline.
I’ve pulled the plug on the B-hyve and restarted it many times while the router remains powered and the controller reconnects without issue.
For me, it only seems to happen when they both lose power at the same time.Spread the love!
You can do this by creating the program, set an arbitrary start time, but then shut the program off in the app (turn off the radio button on the PROGRAM SLOTS screen). In this way it won’t run automatically.
Then from the REMOTE screen, you can click Programs in the upper right and manually run the program.Spread the love!

Mine was off for a couple of weeks. I ran a couple of manual zones today with it off, and when I got done it was back in auto. I may have hit the rain delay while I was running the zones manually, not sure if that had something to do with it.Spread the love!
Found that my date was set three days earlier and my time was way off. Doesn’t this controller get that info from the internet? All of my address info is correct – I could see this affecting the hour, but not the date being three days off.Spread the love!August 3, 2018 at 7:34 pm in reply to: External rain sensor testing and understanding its operation #5625
Thanks much. I will keep an eye on it. I will reset delay, no biggie. It’s been pouring here in PA for the last couple of weeks, so I haven’t watered in a while. It would be great to get that functionality to be able to see if the rain sensor has tripped (outside of a program) so I don’t have to keep resetting the delay. 🙂
Thanks again.Spread the love!August 3, 2018 at 1:43 am in reply to: External rain sensor testing and understanding its operation #5598
I believe mine is the Gen 2 HRC 400 and I moved from 0023 to 0037 this evening. You state that 0038 is the latest. Is that update pending, or is 0037 the latest and greatest?

Hardware: WT25G2H-0001 (it’s the HRC 400 in case that matters).Spread the love!July 31, 2018 at 8:37 pm in reply to: External rain sensor testing and understanding its operation #5464
This is exactly the way it should operate, and hopefully the app reflects the rain sensor status immediately as well. Should include a bypass option at the same time.
Can you comment if the same update will go out to the HRC 400 (my controller) and what it’s version number will be? I’m on 0023 for a WT25G2H-0001.

No response, but here is my suspicion.
My Mini-Clik was connected to wires in my sprinkler wire bundle, and did not have its own wire running straight to the controller. This could have contributed to noise or resistance.
Nonetheless, I installed an Irritrol RS1000 wireless and it has been working fine. I figured a wireless sensor would surely open and close the contacts, and this one worked perfectly.
I suspect the wired sensors can be used, but might be more suitable as an interrupt on the common wire instead of wired direct to the sensor inputs based on my experience. Unfortunately, that will give you NO indication that the sensor has tripped.
I do agree, we should get some notification from the app when the sensor is tripped, not just when a program is trying to run. Plus the ability to bypass the sensor from the app. I did request this in a recent forum post.Spread the love!
Thanks. I was aware of that. All the more reason to know, though, if the rain sensor is tripped – I wouldn’t want to remotely start a manual program if the rain sensor has tripped. I can make the decision, but I would need to know it’s active, which I can’t currently get from the app.
A feature to bypass it remotely would be good as well.Spread the love!
I purchased the Irritrol RS1000 and it appears to be working fine.Spread the love!
