Beekeeping is a time intensive and laborious task, especially in the realm of commercial beekeeping. In his paper, the design and building of prototype model of a remote beehive monitor that a beekeeper could use to more efficiently manage a hive and garner useful data on the hive’s health is discussed. The main goal was to track their weight and temperature over time. Additionally, orientation was important to track in case the hives were pushed over or moved without the beekeeper’s knowledge. Finally, to further assist the beekeeper, the remotely feed the hives and automate the process without the beekeeper needing to be on site is discussed. The design methodology of the hardware and system is explained. The results obtained and future directions for more accurate automation of the system is also discussed.
