The system is flexible. It offers different sensor node setups and communication paths for different data acquisition requirements aka. “flavours”.
There are two different hive scale designs aka. “flavours”:
- Hiveeyes One sensor nodes transmit measurement values to a gateway using radio-link communication, the gateway receives and decodes telemetry data from Bencode format, then forwards it to the MQTT broker in JSON. This is specified in BERadio specification.
- Open Hive Seeeduino Stalker sensor nodes send telemetry data by issuing HTTP POST requests over GPRS.
- Open Hive Adafruit HUZZAH sensor nodes are using WiFi to send telemetry data to the MQTT broker in JSON format.
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 Handbook.
Exporting raw data in CSV format is just a matter of accessing https://swarm.hiveeyes.org/api/hiveeyes/testdrive/area-42/node-1/data.txt For more detailed information, please have a look at the data export handbook.
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.
