Data visualization

Navigate to the automatically populated Grafana testdrive dashboard to watch measurement values floating in. For guidelines about how to link to or embed Grafana dashboards and panels and about how to specify datetime ranges, please read the Grafana.

Data export

Data alerts

The first preliminary implementation of an automatic Schwarmalarm using mqttwarn for detecting sudden weight-loss and data-loss events and sending alert notifications to beekeepers is ready, enjoy.


The registration for alerts is currently a manual process. Please get back to us for getting support on that.
