This ApisProtect sensor is placed in the hive and continuously
monitors the temperature, humidity, bee movement and sound levels inside. The
data is transmitted to a base station, and onto a cloud-based server. There,
it's analyzed utilizing machine learning – based on data gathered from hundreds of
hives over a three-year period.
Utilizing an online dashboard, beekeepers can check on their
processed hive data. Additionally, if the system determines that problems such
as disease or pest infestations may be occurring in one or more of the hives,
users are notified immediately via a smartphone alert. https://newatlas.com/good-thinking/apisprotect-beehive-monitoring/

commercially viable technologies, not economy destroying taxes”.”
