How the Beebot Works

The Beebot is very easy to install and takes less than 5 minutes to set-up before you can start monitoring your beehive anytime and from anywhere you have an internet connection.  You can watch our step-by-step instruction video on the specific steps to follow, or continue reading the high level steps below.

 

Step One:   Connect the Battery

After removing the battery panel from the Beebot, connect a fully charged battery to the white plug shown below 

Once connected, replace the back panel of the Beebot and secure with the screws provided.

Step Two:   Install the Beebot on a Frame

The Beebot can be placed in a horizontal position as shown below or vertically.   If using a new frame, it's recommended you start wiring the frame from the second eyelet.

Step Three:   Connect the Beebot to Wi-Fi

Follow the instructions provided with the Beebot to connect to your Wi-Fi network.

Step Four:  Install in the Hive

For best results, install the Beebot on a frame in the centre of the brood box.  Once placed in the hive, you can start monitoring your hives 24 x 7.
