I cannot even explain how pumped up we are being able to share some of our product information! We plan to launch 2 product lines as soon as we feel they are perfect! The 2 lines will be:
The HHPRO-v1is our fully integrated monitoring hive, that will allow you to remotely monitor and control your hive. We are still working out all of the final to market devices. We want to make sure what we will be putting in your hands will be something that works seamlessly and sensibly. We know for sure, it will have the ability to track weight gain and loss of the entire hive. It will have internal and external temperature and humidity sensors, entrance gate control, and all powered by solar. The system will have integrated cellular data connections so you can check in from almost anywhere.
The 49P is the no glam, all guts hive. It has all the advantages of the HHPRO less the monitoring. It has the ability to accept a few accessories that we are not quite ready to talk about, but its not a dumb hive by any means and is much more advanced than your standard Langstroth hive.
Both Hyves (i cant help myself), will share the same insulating characteristics that mimic the trees that the bees have evolved to survive in. A normal Langstroth hive has about a 0.75R insulation rating and our hives are around the 8.0-9.0R and have gaskets that prevent air infiltration. Our initial tests are more than exciting. The cost of ownership when comparing a standard hive, a Flow Hive, other insulated hives, and the Hyper Hyve. The Hyper Hyve is be far the least expensive hive for cost of ownership, because it reduces your need to buy bees year after year, plus it increases the bees productivity, giving the beekeeper much more honey.
So, thank you for signing up and helping us build a community of beekeepers and hopefully a Hyve Cult (but not like that), we will have more information soon.
