Satellite-connected beehive monitoring

Linking it all together

With the comms hub

These scales connect to our satellite or WiFi hub, which allows you to collect data over time and view it remotely, from wherever, in real time.

Hive weight scales

Reports the weight of your hive every 6 hours, and the ambient temperature under the hives on that site. Designed to fit underneath stand-alone hives or into some pallet systems (the 50mm height will slightly raise a hive that is mounted on standard 35mm pallet cleats). A typical installation would place, say, 4 scales per site to get a gauge on how well the site is doing even if one hive goes bad.

To collect and report data, you also need one satellite hub per site. However, scales can also operate as manual stand-alone scales by actually speaking the hive weight out to you at the push of a button.
