The brood sensor is an internal device within the beehive that measures temperature and humidity. It communicates wirelessly with the Honeyinstruments “Dual-Connect“ scale. The temperature and humidity data of the brood, along with the weight data from the scale, are transmitted every hour via the Sigfox network.

Temperature and Humidity of the Brood
The temperature and humidity of the brood in a beehive are crucial indicators of the health and well-being of the bee colony. Regulating these environmental conditions is essential for the healthy development of bees and the production of high-quality honey. Here's why it's so important to closely monitor these data.
Appropriate temperature is vital for the development of bee larvae. Maintaining a constant temperature in the brood area allows worker bees to provide the best conditions for their growth.
Excessive temperature or humidity fluctuations can stress bees, making them more susceptible to diseases, parasites, and thermal stress. Continuous monitoring allows for the early detection of problems and intervention.
Stable and optimal environmental conditions lead to a more productive hive. Bees are more effective at collecting nectar and producing honey when their environment is well-regulated.
Extreme temperature variations can lead to temperature drift, where bees leave the hive and die from cold. Monitoring helps prevent this tragic situation.
