HM-5 Hive Scale (2017 Model)
The SolutionBee Hive Scale just got even better! With the Brand New HM-5, a more streamlined build and software has helped to produce the most user-friendly Hive monitor on the market at nearly half the cost. Reading both the weight of the hive and temperature, it can provide a constant flow of data you can use to follow your hives growth or decline during the weeks in-between inspections and through the winter. We have worked along with SolutionBee and the Bee Informed Partnership to help beekeepers better understand what is happening in their hives.
- Works with the exact same SolutionBee app and software as the previous model.
- The entire scale, from the monitor box to the scale legs have been refined down to help keep it stable when your hive start to get taller.
- WiFi not required in the field! Data is transferred securely through the NFC (Near-Field Communication) chip in your Android phone or device (NFC works directly with Android Devices or Apple IPhone 7 devices or higher).
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A HIVE SCALE?
- Weight of the hive can help you determine which hives are healthy and enjoying a good nectar flow (weight increasing), or which hives are not healthy and/or are not collecting nectar (weight constant or decreasing).
- Quickly send you an alarm indicating which hives have suffered possible theft, bear attack or toppling (sudden weight change).
- Show which colonies are not within normal temperature and humidity ranges.
- Show which hives are experiencing the heaviest nectar flows map out their location.
Each Hive Scale comes with Software & Activation, which includes an online account, data storage in the Internet Cloud, technical support, 1-Year Warranty and web/mobile application.
