Beekeeping Today Podcast: Rich Morris: Lead Drone – Broodminder


Jul 31, 2019

Rich Morris is a beekeeper and
electrical engineer whose passion and career combined to produce
Broodminder.  Broodminder is a set of battery powered sensors
and scale that provide insights to beekeepers on the changes within
their monitored hives. The sensors include separate devices for
temperature, temperature and humidity, and weight and (external)
temperature.  While this is interesting information on a hive
by hive basis, the real power of the data is when it is combined,
tracked and monitored across regions or even countries. Rich and
Broodminder are achieving this through their beecounted.org
website.

In this podcast, Jeff and Kim talk to Rich about Broodminder,
beecounted.org, their beginnings, and future. It is an interesting
discussion and a peek at one tool useable in today’s beekeeping
management approach.
