The Orbit 'B-hyve' has been shown off at CES 2018 as a new piece of equipment for the smart home to help optimize the amount of water being used to keep gardens healthy.
The device works by being affixed onto a water source and a hose to instantly go to work restricting usage to ensure you're only using the amount you actually need. Users can then take a look at the accompanying app to see how much water they're using, adjust the time of day it will operate and much more.
The Orbit 'B-hyve' also incorporates local weather information to ensure the water isn't flowing when it's rainy out to further automate the system. This speaks to consumer preferences for conservation methods within their home when it comes to energy and resources.
