Wouldn't it be great to track the weather in the apiary? Well, now I
can. Thankfully my apiary is close enough to run a cable from the
house to transfer the data back. But in reality, I should be able to
use the mobile phone system to transfer data if further away.
have an Arduino (in simple terms a small low powered programmable
'computer'), attached to a pressure gauge (or barometer),
temperature humidity and light sensor. A 'program' is run on the
Arduino that reads the sensors and not only uploads to the graphs
below in real time, but also saves the data to a SD memory card. At
the moment, the setup is sitting in the house, but hopefully I’ll
install in the apiary in the next few weeks. A photo of the Arduino
setup is shown in the picture to the right.
