BeeBox is a Smart Beehive solution that helps beekeepers make the right decisions based on measurements in the hive, and satellite data from the surrounding vegetation.

Beekeepers do not know the status of their hives often for days. BeeBox is helping them to get timely information about the status of the hives and the status of the surroundings, using space data and IoT devices. Our hive-scale solution is designed to work every day, there is no need to recharge, as we are using solar panels, and energy management – just like satellites – to keep the system up and send as much measurement as possible. The internal data collector monitors the health of the hive to know in advance whether any bee activity is approaching. Our Hive exit cam monitors the movements of the bees, while AI scripts analyze the photos and videos arriving in our servers. We help the beekeepers with a beekeeping map where they can monitor the plants and surroundings around their hives coming from Sentinel satellites. Also, they receive the latest national bee-health information and quarantine zones on their map.
