The modern autonomous beekeeping system developed in this research is the real example of Internet of Things technologies (IoT) in the beekeeping sector. It performs a bee colony maintenance control without interfering with its processes, while optimizing frequency of the apiary inspection. The system helps to analyze data correlation with video, meteo data, mass changes in time as well as interpretation of nest temperature, humidity and linking to local geographic and biological conditions. It allows a beekeeper to request and receive key data indicators and in accordance with the indicators to react on time and provide the best required maintenance of the bee colony. By implementing the autonomous beekeeping, the hives conditions can be tracked remotely, e.g. whether the inside temperature is critical, if the family is missing feed, therefore the critical deviation can be detected and prevented in time.
