document: BeeHive Health And Status Monitoring

jeremy thomas submitted a new resource:

 

[plain]BeeHive Health And Status Monitoring[/plain] - [plain]Monitor your hive temp and queen status and weight, with options of weather and solar.[/plain]

 

 

Some Key points on the Product:

1-Can this system monitor and track per individual hive: Tracking of hive data/performance, that is really easy to do in the Arnia user interface. Each monitor and scale has a unique serial number which is assigned to a hive. You can generate graphs for selected date periods enabling trend observation and comparative analysis of data within a colony as well as between different colonies and different sites. The value of this data will be immense. So for...

I see the weather side of things plugs into a small station with rainfall sensors etc. Can this be adapted to use a station thats already been setup to WMO standards (ie a VP2+) ?

 

Also not sure why the power pack relies solely on batteries - any other unit like this would be solar with battery backup - there is an option ? This would be ideal for NZ

 

I notice its a 2G solution for the UK. We'd need to make sure the roaming frequency was compatible for NZ urban/rural

To cover your points:

1-I will see if your weather station can work with what I offer.

2-Yes we offer Solar as an option, but funny enough most people go for batteries..

3-Roaming should be fine, they are in 19 countries now and haven't had an issue, but will double check.

Are you interested in setting up the system?

It depends on cost. I wasn't actually aware that you were importing these as the reference was to a UK site.

My VP2+ is 'wireless' to its console and is sited between 2 hives, so this would be ideal, especially if it could also use the additional VP2+ sensors for inside the hive.

The solar option I'd be keen on would be solar to recharge batteries, with a 2nd battery backup in the event of insufficient solar/charge. My current system has run for 3 years on 1 set of lithium batteries using this method.

The best thing to do Grant is talk to you. I have some options to discuss with you. you can get my email address off the brochure.

jeremy thomas updated [plain]BeeHive Health And Status Monitoring[/plain] with a new update entry:

 

[plain]What Does Monitoring offer?[/plain]

 

 

There is a lot more Arnia can offer you than just scales to monitor your hive weight, if you are wanting to see what more we can offer then check out these links. What we specialise in is setting beekeepers up with a system to help them on there most important issues or areas they want to focus on with the hive management. If you want to arrange a Skype meeting to discuss further please inquire.

 

Lets list out some for an example.

Check sentinel hive is OK: Receive alters if the...
