IoT for beekeepers
What's the solution about?
With the help of IoT technology, the health status of the bees in the hive can be determined. In addition, the noise pattern recorded by means of an integrated microfron is analysed to prevent events such as bee mortality.
BeeAnd.me is a monitoring sensor system for bee colonies in the hive. The integrated IoT technology makes it possible to determine the health status of the bees in the hive. This works by means of the BeeAnd.me hive scale and the integrated microphone, which analyses the well-being of the bees on the basis of recorded noise patterns. The collection and analysis of this data will enable beekeepers to predict and prevent adverse events such as bee mortality (“predictive analytics”).
With BeeAnd.me, the data is recorded, transferred, stored in the cloud and made accessible via web or app. This enables beekeepers to observe the well-being of the bees even from a distance. The integrated hive scale also shows the amount of honey in the hive. In addition to the weight and sound samples, temperature and humidity data complete the picture.
BeeAnd.me uses Microtronics technology consisting of hardware, software & service. Sample data is only transmitted when a specified pattern is detected. This way, only relevant data is transmitted and the amount of data is minimised. BeeAnd.me thus relies on the Smart Data concept.
Microtronics makes the data available at defined interfaces. The evaluation and analysis of this data, on the other hand, is the task of BeeAnd.me.

These components are used
In 2017, BeeAndme was founded with the vision of helping many beekeepers and businesses to realise precision beekeeping with technological support. As if that were not enough, further innovations and new developments followed, such as the world’s first talking digital honey jar and the pollination computer.
