Leading agricultural tech company upgrades its ability to track and monitor bee hives around the country. Company has automated data processing and is also marketing the product as a hive theft solution with accelerometer and GPS sensors.
PLYMOUTH, Minn., March 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NimbeLink, the world’s leading provider of cellular technology, solutions and services, today announced that The Bee Corp (www.thebeecorp.com) has selected NimbeLink’s cellular Asset Tracking Solution. In addition to using the solution for its own bee hive management purposes, The Bee Corp also white labels the NimbeLink solution and sells them to bee keepers all around the country and has plans to expand globally as soon as the LTE M network is live and available in Europe and other regions around the globe.
“We were in the process of automating the data analysis for our products, and needed a solution where we could use APIs to automatically bring sensor data into our internal database,” says Ellie Symes, Founder and CEO of The Bee Corp. “The hardware solution we had been using didn’t have this option. NimbeLink ended up being the best solution that not only met this need but also was an improvement in many other areas over the solution we had at the time. We got lucky that we found a Goldilocks solution.”
Since working with NimbeLink, The Bee Corp has automated and improved its data processing, and has also incorporated an additional hive theft solution with the accelerometer and GPS sensors in the product, which has already gained great traction in the U.S. market and interest from overseas.
“We have talked to several international beekeepers that are eager for the LTE M network to come to their countries so we can provide them with this solution,” continued Symes.
“The Bee Corp tested the device for about two months in its research apiary and was able to get a strong sense of how the sensor handled different conditions in the beehive,” says Scott Schwalbe, CEO and Co-Founder of NimbeLink. “Additionally, with remote locations and a small environment to work with, battery life and size were critical to The Bee Corp. And since our Asset Tracking Solution has a battery life of 5-7 years, and dimensions of 4” x 4”, the NimbeLink solution was a perfect fit. We are happy to be working with The Bee Corp and to be contributing to global sustainability.”
