Hive monitoring helps beekeepers help their bees
The Eyesonhives Scout B is the easiest way to monitor your hive, view your bees remotely and keep an eye on your hive’s health.
Designed for citizen scientists who want a better future for bees
Eyesonhives is focused on backyard and rooftop beekeepers. The system does not disturb your colony or require modifications to your hive, and is easy to set up. Simply place the unit one to two feet away from the hive and point at the hive entrance.
Check your hive from anywhere
You’ll be able to check in on your hive from anywhere. You can see what your bees have been up to, conduct your own experiments and get measurable results. Imagine being able to measure the rate of your bees’ spring build up, observe trends, and setting an alert if your hive swarms!
Eyesonhives uses a camera and computer to visually monitor what goes on at the bee hive all day, every day. Activity is measured by tracking the number of flying bees.
Colony activity patterns are tracked over time using computerized video analysis. Hours of video is automatically translated into an easy to understand, visual, real-time summary for beekeepers.
A key insight is that it’s not just the ‘count’ of individual bees that matters, it’s their flight behavior. Eyesonhives doesn’t just look at bees, it measures flight behavior of the hive as a superorganism!
The Data Analytics subscription
The Data Analytics subscription includes the web app data visualization, alerts and video storage. It’s the best part of Eyesonhives – you can see the growth trends of your hive, better understand your hive’s health and see daily data and video highlights from your hive. It also includes access to our online community where you can see other hives on the platform!
Setup is Easy
Requires Power and WiFi. The system uses WiFi to communicate alerts, upload video, and report trending data. Setup requires access to 120V power and a usable WiFi signal at the hive.
Eyesonhives uses in-field video analytics to process video data, which means the system can work anywhere! While our our team and data center is based in the US, we have begun a soft roll out for select international Beta customers.
We have been focused on the US Market to iron out the kinks and provide enhanced support.
If you’re ready to be a non-US Beta customer, we’ll need your help in navigating the import details of your country. We will also ship your unit without an AC plug, so you’ll need to provide a USB power source such as a wall plug, or a solar battery / power source to use the device.
