meta BroodMinder-WS features

BroodMinder-WS combines a weather shield with a BroodMinder-TH. It will measure ambient conditions letting you know whether you reach too high or too low local temperatures in your apiary. Sometimes this can provide important insights e.g. inform about the hive requirements over food stores.

In MyBroodminder app local measurements are displayed side by side with those issued from the Weathersource service, allowing it to benchmark and assess its 10-day forecast.

Measuring local weather conditions also allows to compute the local nectar-index®  KPI, assessing whether local ambient conditions are suitable for nectar-flow occurrence.

The brood and fitness algorithms are also taking advantage of this more accurate measurement to compute hive daily metrics.

Works with the extensive BroodMinder wireless ecosystem.

If you own a Cell hub or a Wifi hub, you can inspect the data in real time: this option requires a premium subscription.

The data can be accessed both on mobile in BroodMinder Bees app (Android, iOs) and on the web
