Following a 16.7% drop in bee colonies in 2015/16 alone, Irish start-up ApisProtect and satellite firm Inmarsat have joined forces to give beekeepers early warning if there is a problem with their hives.

The solution, based on IoT sensors and machine learning, is already being used to monitor the health of 10 million bees across Europe, South Africa and North America. An ApisMonitor Unit inside the beehive connects to an analytics platform optimised for measuring bee health via Inmarsat’s Long Range Wide Area Network and Broadband Global Area Network connectivity.
