meta BroodMinder-BeeDar installation

Install Broodminder-BeeDar box horizontal screwed to the facade of the hive with the two screws.

Try to place the active sensor in the symmetry axis of the hive entrance so that it measures both sides equal (this means box slightly shifted left hand side)

Vertical position can be a few centimeters up from the exit of the hives. The radar sensor covers 32° vertical (elevation) and 80° horizontal (azimuth)

Note that Beedar won’t measure just at the entrance but a bit further when bees are arriving or departing.
