IoT Behive Monitor

Please note: This is a Citizen Science project for demonstration purposes only

Dual temperature and humidity with internal and external sensors

The Beehive Monitor is based on the Arduino MKR WAN 1310 board, which provides a practical and cost-effective solution to add LoRa® connectivity to projects requiring low power. More information about the setup can be found on Paul Schulzs’ GitHub

There are 2 Temperature and Humidity Sensors in the Beehive below the Green Line is a sensor mounted inside the hive and the Orange Line is a sensor mounted on the outside of the hive. Note, the inside temperature and humidity of the beehive is held at a constant 34C by the Bees alone regardless of the Library Temperature typically 24C. The peaks in the library temperature are when the sun comes in through the window in the morning, which also hits the hive, but this has no effect on the hive temperature.
