BuzzBox monitors your hive's health and provides live updates to the beekeeper's mobile app throughout the day. BuzzBox detects: swarming, missing queen, and healthy, sick or collapsed hives in real-time. You can monitor temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, and local weather conditions. BuzzBox* even contains anti-theft systems that alert you when your hive is disturbed.
BuzzBox is used in 20+ countries, as well as by Australian Parliament, renowned beekeeper Phil Chandler, and beekeeping associations throughout the world. BuzzBox is a smart hive monitoring assistant that utilizes artificial intelligence to perpetually learn and improve.
- Requires WiFi
- Solar powered
- Sets in slatted rack or attaches to hive
*BuzzBox is installed on a hive box directly or more easily, into a slatted rack, where it can be attached with zip ties without the need to drill your boxes. If attaching to a box, consider which boxes will be on the hive longest, since you won't want to have to move it often. Using a slatted rack allows you to set the BuzzBox inside without drilling, and obviously remains on the hive all of the time, eliminating the need to relocate it! On a Top Bar, moving it isn't an issue, as the BuzzBox just attaches to the back or end of the hive. If attaching to the back of a box, you'll need to drill a 15⁄16" hole with a spade bit or hole saw.
