Howdy to All,
I’m sure some of you may use various types of technology in your apiary. We use a live, streaming webcam to watch our beehives year 'round along with electronic hive scales. In addition to keeping bees as a hobby, we also are amateur weather observers. As honeybees are directly affected by the weather, we keep a watchful eye on our bees throughout the year and seek to promote general awareness of how honeybees and weather are inter-related.
Our live webcam can be viewed here: http://www.sceniccityweather.com/wp/weathercam/
We use O’Keefe Electronics Inc. Wi-Fi / Cellular Hive Scales and an Amcrest Model IP2M-850E Webcam. Data is transmitted via a Ubiquiti Mesh Wi-Fi Network.
Application of technology to our apiary arises from life-long interests in technology & beekeeping. Somewhere along with the way I also became a ham radio operator (Callsign AK4ZX).
