Beecon

Beecon is a new approach to managing your hive from anywhere in the world. Utilizing
embedded internet of things (IoT) hardware, we have developed a system that keeps the
beekeeper informed in real time. The collected hive data is presented in an easy-to-use and
modern cloud-based platform, accessible to the user from anywhere.
The product is two-fold in that the customer purchases a physical hive monitor that is fixed
beneath the hive and collects the data. The hive monitor transmits hive weight, temperature, and
humidity data once every hour over the users local Wifi network to the cloud. The device itself is
battery powered with a built-in solar charger.
The second product offering is the software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform. The platform is where
the user can view and interact with their hive data and set up SMS alerts critical to the health of
beehives.
There is a broad market opportunity for Beecon. This system will benefit individuals and hobbyist
beekeepers, commercial apiaries, and education/research institutions. The data collected is
universally beneficial for all users.
