BroodMinder-Citizen Science Kit

$239.99

The BroodMinder Citizen Science package includes all three BroodMinder devices. With this configuration of your hive, you will be able to compare data with all the other BroodMinder hives on BeeCounted.org.

BroodMinder-TH2SM goes on top of the upper brood box
BroodMinder-T2SM goes on top of the lower brood box
BroodMinder-W goes under the hive

NOTE: Supply chain caught us on this one, our current parts in the design are quoted as 2024! We hope to have the TH2 back in stock by October. Until then we can only deliver -T2 devices.

You can also select the 'classic' version of 2 -TH2SM devices or 2 - T2SM devices.

For more information, watch our installation video.

NOTE: All BroodMinder-T2 and TH2 devices include TEMPERATURE EVENT detection (including swarms). When a temperature spike happens, the sensor switches to 1 minute sampling in order to get a high resolution recording of the event. If you have a hub, it will also initiate a email message or text message to inform you of the event.

Features

W scale

  • BroodMinder-W hive scale helps to monitor all aspects related to colony resource management: food stores quantification with the total weight measurement. Nectar flow start-up and intensity with weight variations and productivity. Overwintering resource consumption rate and colony startup are also easy to assess with weight measurements.
  • The scale is also helpful to detect colony events like bees leaving for foraging in the morning. Swarming events are also well identified. When the bees leave the hive there is a sudden drop in weight. You can then quantify what time and how big was the swarm. Dearth or robing can also be detected in critical periods.
  • Weight and external temperature are measured every hour and stored into the device internal memory, able to hold more than 1 year data.
  • Works with the extensive BroodMinder wireless ecosystem.
  • If you own a Cell hub or a Wi-fi hub, you can inspect the data in real time: this option requires a premium subscription (learn about subscription plans here).
  • The data can be accessed both on mobile BroodMinder Bees app (Android, iOs) and on the web Mybroodminder.com where you will find advanced metrics like daily weight gain and hive productivity.
  • If you have a free membership, you will be sharing hive scale data with scientists and researchers through our citizen-science initiative BeeCounted.org. Premium Membership users can choose whether to share their data or keep them proprietary.
  • Apiary share with other Broodminder users is possible and only you decide and manage who access it (read only).

TH

  • BroodMinder TH internal brood sensor helps to get a full picture on the internal development of a colony: internal temperature and humidity of the hive, brood level, presence of the queen, difficulties related to eggs laying, swarming events, general health of the colony. Compared with a BroodMinder T2, humidity measurement adds extra information, in particular during nectar-flow periods, giving a clear view on dehydration progress. It is also helpful during winter allowing to control that no condensation (100% humidity) is reached within the hive.
  • As for any other device, BroodMinder TH is integrated within the alert system, and you will be warned in case excessive high (or low) humidity levels are reached within the hive.
  • Housed in a redesigned low profile wrapper, the BroodMinder TH sits on top of your upper brood box or super frames so that any heat and relative humidity created by the bees is recorded and stored within its internal memory.
  • Accurate to 0.2°C (1°F), you will notice the slightest of changes, allowing intervention before it is too late.
  • All BroodMinder-TH devices now include temperature event detection (including swarms). When a temperature spike happens, the sensor switches to 1 minute sampling in order to get a high-resolution recording of the event. If you have a Cell hub or a Wi-fi hub, it will also initiate an email, text message or application alert.
  • Works with the extensive BroodMinder wireless ecosystem.
  • If you own a Cell hub or a Wi-fi hub, you can inspect the data in real time: this option requires a premium subscription (learn about subscription plans here).
  • You can examine the dashboards built with your beehive data thanks to the unique algorithms, at any distance from the apiary.
  • The data can be accessed both on mobile in BroodMinder Bees app (Android, iOs) and on the web Mybroodminder.com.
  • You can compare data from your TH sensor with all the other BroodMinder hives on BeeCounted.org.

T2

  • BroodMinder T2 internal brood sensor helps to monitor the internal development of a colony: internal temperature of the hive, brood level, presence of the queen, difficulties related to eggs laying, swarming events, general health of the colony.
  • Housed in a low profile, hermetically sealed wrapper, the BroodMinder T2 sits on top of your brood or super frames so that any heat created by the bees is recorded as it rises to the top of the hive. Accurate to 1 degree Fahrenheit (0.2 degree Celsius), you will notice the slightest of changes, allowing intervention before it is too late.
  • All BroodMinder T2 devices now include temperature event detection (including swarms). When a temperature spike happens, the sensor switches to 1 minute sampling in order to get a high-resolution recording of the event. If you have a Cell hub or a Wi-fi hub, it will also initiate an email, text message or application alert.
  • The waterproof envelope keeps the sensor away from bee activity. Without any wear and tear, you will be able to keep the device for life.
  • Works with the extensive BroodMinder wireless ecosystem.
  • If you own a Cell hub or a Wi-fi hub, you can inspect the data in real time: this option requires a premium subscription (learn about subscription plans here).
  • You can examine the dashboards built with your beehive data thanks to the unique algorithms, at any distance from the apiary.
  • The data can be accessed both on mobile in BroodMinder Bees app (Android, iOs) and on the web Mybroodminder.com.
  • You can compare data from your T2 sensor with all the other BroodMinder hives on BeeCounted.org.
