Advancing Art through Science
Welcome to Real Time Monitoring!
HiveTool™ is an open source project that uses readily available, off-the-shelf hardware and free software to continuously monitor a beehive. Computerized hive monitors provide real time and historic data and graphs of weight, internal and ambient temperature, humidity and light levels which give the beekeeper a noninvasive view into the hive. HiveTool won the 2015 Bayer Bee Care Community Leadership Award.
Order the parts needed to build the HiveTool Hive Monitoring System from the Center For Honey Bee Research HiveTool Monitor Kits are made available through the kindness and hard work of volunteers at The Center for Honey Bee Research, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. They assemble and test the Hive Interface circuit broad, provide sensors and accessories and fulfill and track orders. Thanks!
