How can we help?

It´s easy with us

Monitoring of weight growths and drops in beehives remotely, via smartphone. A beekeeper can assess, when to process honey or add the supers. He/she also knows, when to feed the bees.

We save your time! You can monitor exact growths, temperatures and humidity. The system notifies you only after exceeding of set values. 

We save the transportation costs! It is not necessary to visit the apiary station and to control, when the harvest has begun, or when the beehive is full, and the harvest stagnates.


We will protect your bees!

We will ensure your calm sleep

Securing the mobile wagon, entry to the apiary station and securing the beehives against damaging. The beehive scales send an SMS notification in the app or up to 5 emails with the text describing which parameters are likely disturbed and calls up to two mobile phone numbers.

If a bear knocks down the beehive, the apiary station turns on the siren for 30 seconds to frighten away the bear, so it does not make more damages.

We detect and eliminate other effects of weight change. As for example, bee swarming, beehive looting by another colony.

Hundreds of beekeepers use our monitoring of bees and apiaries.

 Join us and make your apiaries a better place.

Our mission

Our objective is to provide the beekeepers all necessary equipment and accessories for beekeeping, and the technology for monitoring and securing the beehives and the entire apiary station, in order to maximize the automation and to remotely monitor the operation of the beehive, so it can be protected against bears and thieves.

We offer a solution for already existing apiary stations, as well as modern solution for new apiary stations. We work on systems for beekeepers since 2012. In 2012, as the first client in Europe, we had the GSM scales, which automatically connect to the WEB server. Our scales have been used already for 7 seasons, and now, they belong to the scales with the best price, regarding their design, manufacturing quality and functionality. We are improving them continuously and we add new and practical functions.

Currently, we work on electrification of plastic beehives, where the beekeeper does not have to take care about automation and monitoring the beehives and the apiary station. The whole electronics is hidden in plastic parts of the hive and it is maintenance-free and usable for 10 years.

Wooden-stainless steel apiary scales

Unique solution of beehive scales, which is fully sufficient for beekeeper´s needs. The best ratio of price and functionality, and practical usability in Europe. All benefits of hive scales are included in one solution.

The structure of the scales does not require wooden cover, as it is common in all-metal scales, since the scales itself are wooden cover. Thanks to stainless steel supporting legs located transversely from the bottom, it is possible to put the scales on the beams with various distances, or on any surface, on which the hives are commonly put. It is relatively small – only 45 mm, and it is produced in three different widths of 380, 450 and 500 mm, which makes it suitable to fit in the constructions of mobile wagons.

Plastic apiaries

Since 2018, we cooperate with Czech company Pokorný Dačice  which produces plastic hives. Within our cooperation, we have developed plastic hive scales under plastic hives, which is a part of the structure of the entire plastic assembly of the hive. The assemblies of such hive, or relevant accessories and scales, can be ordered at our shop. In near future, we will offer also the super for the cradle with solar panel, which charges inbuilt accumulator in the hive scales and monitors the temperature, humidity and buzzing in the cradle.

Technical information

The construction of our hives is adapted, most commonly in Czech Republic, in frame size ratio 39 x 24. The supers consist of three segments – bottom, middle and upper. These segments are connected in the corners by metal bolts and enable to assemble the supers of the hive with various heights. The most frequently used height of frame size ratio 39 x 24 consists of one bottom, one middle and one upper segment. By connecting of one bottom and one upper part, we get the super of the hive for semi-frames with the size of 39 x 12. This solution will appreciate mainly less physically able beekeepers for its half-weight by the manipulation, for example, with a full nectary. On the contrary, the super can be set with the use of only one bottom segment, two middle segments and one upper segment for using the frames with the size of 39 x 36, which is a size suitable for Dadant system beekeeping.

An important feature of beehives is their thermo-isolation in winter against the frost, and in summer against overheating. Here, we use air capsules with the thickness of 20 mm. Air has 6-times lower thermo-conductivity than soft wood, so the thermo-isolation is sufficiently ensured, which is confirmed by practical experience. The second important factor is airing the hives. Closely under the edge of the roof, there are 8 ventilation holes protected by grilles, and in the ceiling, there are ventilation rose windows, through which the beekeeper can fluently set the intensity of airing without the need to open the hive. As it was written above, slight ventilation must be ensured also in winter. The hive is made precisely, so it does not have any air-leaks. The hive bottom is provided with slotted socket under the stainless-steel grille VARO, in which there is inserted steam-permeable foil for mites control. If the beekeeper in hot days removes this foil, the hive can be ventilated by its whole bottom. There is a hole in the front wall of the hive, with the diameter 25 mm. It can be closed from both sides by a plug, or you can insert there a circular cap with rotary wheel with 4 different positions: total closure, ventilation only, passage only for worker bees, and fully open.

The circular cap at the bottom of the hive has its removable fly-plate, by which you can close the cap during the transport. In the cap, there are two movable segments able to set the width of the circular cap from 0 to 31 cm. One segment can close the fly-plate fully, and the second segment has ventilation holes, so the hive can be aired. At the lower side of the bottom, there are saddles and pressed nuts M6, by which it is possible to mount the hive to the structure made of any profile with the dimension 40 x 40 mm. On the sides of the facing, there are handles used for moving the supers. On the side of the upper segment of the super, there are lifting rods, by which is possible to raise and separate the frames, which the bees seal. Roof part has several latches, which ensure reliable attachment of the roof to the hive without any additional weights. For feeding the hive, it is possible to use the pocket feeder with the volume of 5 liters of the solution. The feeder has the same dimensions as two frames 39 x 24, so it can be inserted temporarily to the cradle and to the nectary according to beekeeper´s consideration. The part of the feeder are two foldable loops, which enable easy manipulation, and the gauze serves as a float. It is possible to insert the maternal grille between the cradle and nectary, a always put the grille under the ceiling for the collection of propolis, so the bees will not seal the ventilation holes.
