The Beezum eHive Gateway handles the communication for your apiary via the mobile network. You only need one device for your apiary and you can view the information from home without having to go to the apiary. The device is water resistant and contains a rechargeable lithium battery. Place the device somewhere central in the apiary and all devices within a range of about 30m will connect automatically via Bluetooth. You don’t have to set anything up. Simple has no wires and can be charged with solar energy.
Used as a complement with Beezum eHive Heart and eHive Scale. We recommend that you choose a unit with a solar panel so that the battery is charged automatically, and your apiary can be connected for long periods of time and even during winter.
If you are monitoring more than one hive, the Beezum Gateway routes all the data from your hives through this intermediary node and sends information to the Beezum cloud server so you can access all the information via the Mobile App or web application on your computer.
Perfect to use if you have remote apiaries, as you don’t need to visit the apiary to get your information about your eHive hives.
For good radio coverage, remember that the device should be placed a bit above the ground, preferably on a bench next to a beehive, and not in the grass. Also, do not place it on top of a beehive if the roof is made of metal, as this may cause a poorer radio signal. If you choose a solar panel, turn it towards the sun to charge it properly.
Works with all other eHive Heart and eHive Scale devices.
