BroodMinder Citizen Science Package includes 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 Citizen Science Package is a bundle covering various parts of the hive box:
- BroodMinder-T2SM 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 that the temperature + humidity sensor TH2SM is on backorder until 2024 so this bundle now ships with 2 x T2SM sensors
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.
MyBroodMinder.com stores your data for free because of our primary goal: Better Bee Health.
This goal is accomplished through the creation of diagnostic hardware and software, working seamlessly to present bee health data.
Much as EKGs help doctors better understand the stresses of their patients, our equipment reveals the health metrics of bee hives. This allows the beekeeper to make hive adjustments based on facts, not hunches. While the collection of data is done at the hive level, the software allows for hive metrics to be shared publicly. This will assist the overall beekeeping community by presenting common insights, and answering the myriad of “what if” questions that are so common with beekeepers. Beekeepers and researchers alike will benefit from this free and anonymous shared data.
