    Orbit B-Hyve Irrigation System platform plugin for Homebridge.


    NOTE: Option 1 is not working correctly with a bug in IOS 15.4 and 15.5. The bug will cause zone switches to be displayed randomly or not at all.

    This plugin provides 3 options for use in HomeKit
    Both option have additional switches as options for Standby/Off mode and a Run All across all devices along with any B-Hyve Program Schedules

    1. Irrigation System Accessory with zones that are linked (default configuration)
    2. Irrigation System Accessory with separate zones shown as a single tile
    3. Irrigation System Accessory with separate zones shown as a separate tiles (option in HomeKit)

    There are plus and minus to each, so why not have options.
    If you have more than one home on your B-Hyve account you may filter devices for a home based on the street address for the location you want to display in HomeKit. BLE devices such as Flood Sensors will follow the location of the Hub's address. (Did not work as expected). Addresses for flood sensors can be assigned here
    If you have set manual preset runtimes for you controller or set zone flow rates in the B-Hyve app you can use these values for inital runtimes seen in HomeKit
