Get actionable data and grow your apiaries
Immediately know which hives need attention with our easy-to-install monitors.
For U.S commercial beekeepers, from as little as $3 per hive per month, we can help you identify which colonies need your attention, ensuring that healthy colonies remain undisturbed and ready for pollination.
For our Irish and UK customers, our hobbyist product is now available.
Optimize all aspects of operation
With a new hobbyist product now available on the Irish market, ApisProtect aims to make Irish beekeepers the most technological advanced beekeepers in the world.
Dr Fiona Edwards Murphy, CEO and Co-Founder of ApisProtect, highlights the importance of using IoT (Internet of Things) to monitor honey bees, “For the past 3 years, we have worked side by side with commercial and hobbyist beekeepers in the U.S. and Ireland to develop our remote beehive monitoring system, collating over 15 million data sets.
As we have seen with smart technology in all elements of our lives, the potential of collating data for improved decision making is transformative. By utilizing sensor technology within the beehive, we can provide the beekeeper with data to improve decision making and increase the strength and health of their honey bee colonies.”
Kyle Petrie of OpenHive in Dublin is keen to get started with this technology in their beekeeping operation
“We are really excited to be working with ApisProtect this year. This sort of technology is really interesting for us and we’re very much looking forward to getting it in our hands and in turn, into our hives! ”

ApisProtect launches honey bee monitoring technology for U.S beekeepers proven to increase hive productivity and prevent devastating colony losses.
Commercial beekeepers in the United States will now be able to drive operational improvements including increased labor efficiencies of up to 50% and reduced transportation costs during pollination by up to 25%.
“The beauty of the whole system is that it can happen remotely. It takes me an hour and a half to drive to that bee yard and this technology reduces how often I need to open my hives, which can be extremely disruptive to my colonies.”

For U.S. Customers commercial beekeepers email us today to discuss details and pricing.
No additional tasks or special knowledge required
The ApisMonitor does not require you to learn new technology or take on additional tasks. Installation is easy.
The sensor unit attaches to the underside of the hive’s roof where it collects and sends data to the ApisProtect servers.
Because of its unobtrusive presence, the sensor unit won’t impede your workflow.
Monitor your Apiaries with cutting edge technology
You’ll gain valuable information about your colonies including the condition and activities of your bees. With this information, you’ll gain an understanding of whether your colonies are thriving, and receive insights about problems which may emerge in your hives.
ApisProtect turns your raw data into clear actionable insights about specific hives in your apiaries.
Know what to do for your colonies and when
You’ll receive smart alerts with actionable insights that brief you on the condition of your hives, identify problem colonies, and suggest a variety of actions to keep your colonies healthy and prevent loss. You’ll save time and your decisions will have a greater impact as you cultivate healthier, larger colonies.
You won’t have to disturb your hives to understand them at a deeper level.
ApisProtect uses unique, innovative technology to help beekeepers prevent losses and increase productivity in their hives.
Our beehive monitoring device may be small and unobtrusive, but it harnesses a powerful platform. Our machine learning gathers data from multiple sources such as thousands of examples of healthy and weak colonies. These data are then aggregated and anonymised. Our algorithms use these data to understand your hives and send you suggested actions for improved colony health.

The ApisProtect Dashboard
ApisProtect uses the information collected, along with insight from our experts to create and develop machine learning and neural network models which are finetuned by your feedback on our predictions.
These models are capable of predicting the status, trend, strength and brood levels of your hives and are stored in ApisProtect’s secured servers.
The models developed are then used to make daily predictions for your hives based on real-time information.
The predictions made by ApisProtect’s models are then packaged and presented in a clear way, providing actionable insights that allow you to efficiently manage the condition of your apiaries
Check on your hives – anytime, anywhere
Know how your colonies are doing, day or night. Easily monitor them in typically difficult conditions including stormy weather and wintertime.
Evaluate the condition of each colony
Stay up to date with colony condition and identify strong colonies early in the season. You will know which colonies are healthy and which need immediate attention.
Manage your time and resources
Make faster and more effective decisions to keep your colonies healthy, thanks to hive-specific actionable insights delivered straight to you.
Identify weak colonies for intervention
Act early to reduce or prevent the diseases, pests, or events which could lead to large-scale colony losses.
When beekeepers have the data they need to efficiently manage their apiaries, it results in happier bees and a healthier global food supply.
We would appreciate it if you could take some time to answer our surveys. Any information will be of great value.
