BroodMinder T2SM Beehive Temperature Monitor allows you to measure internal temperature with a device designed to meet the needs of the beekeeper. Housed in a low profile (1/4″), hermetically sealed wrapper, the BroodMinder-T2SM 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, you will notice the slightest of changes, allowing intervention before it is too late. Consider adding humidity and/or or a scale for additional monitoring capabilities.
All BroodMinder T2SM beehive temperature monitor 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 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.
