ApisProtect set for UK launch of product to protect beehives
Device installed in beehives uses sensors to measure temperature, noise and movement and helps beekeepers to decide which actions are required
ApisProtect, a business that creates sensors to protect beehives, is launching its consumer product in Britain this month.
ApisProtect develops a device that is installed in beehives which uses sensors that measures temperature, noise, and movement. The data is processed and converted into information beekeepers can use and indicates what actions are required, such as moving a hive that is overheating into a shaded area.
“Our big focus is to tell the beekeepers what they care about,” Dr Fiona Edwards Murphy, chief executive and co-founder of ApisProtect, told the Business Post.
