CES 2018: Orbit Adding HomeKit to Lawn and Garden Watering Systems!

iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch users will have the ability to control their lawn and garden watering systems through Apple's Home app or with Siri. 

HomeKit will enable users to control basic watering functions, such as turning on or off sprinklers. In the Home app, users can schedule their sprinklers to run at specific times, and find out when the next watering is. 

Orbit's new HomeKit-enabled B-hyve products will be available to purchase from Water Ketch Sprinkler

HomeKit added support for sprinkler systems and faucets in iOS 11, and the first accessories compatible with Apple's smart home platform are beginning to roll out.
