This is the BuzzBox setup of our friend Richard in London, taken during the BuzzBox video shoot in March 2018. Richard is the head of the London Beekeepers Association, and has 3 x Commercial Beehives (a popular hive style in the UK) in the back of his garden in London.

It’s quite a long garden, but the WiFi signal reached us without any issues!

BuzzBox install was very smooth. A 7/8" drill bit and 4X 1" wood screws did the trick. Keep in mind my hive is 1-1/4" thick. Installed my buzzbox upside down so the antenna would not interfere with the lid.

Installed two packages of bee’s in my yard and added those pics for fun.

Welcome @dingbatca great photos!

Wow @dingbatca, what hive style is that you’re using with the BuzzBox? It looks super solid!

ps. Our team are working on responses to your other requests! :wink:

They are traditional Langstroth hives built from red cedar scraps. The lumber happened to be 1-1/4" thick. I got some cool style points and more insulation for the Portland OR USA winters. I affectionately refer to them as my apocalypse hives, as they will survive just about anything.

New pics below with my own temperature monitoring setup installed, and a BuzzBox.

Hi Everyone,

Here’s my backyard hive.

  • Langstroth
  • Carniolan honey bees
  • Plastic foundation with beeswax coating
  • BuzzBox mounted on the back of the bottom hive body

(Note: i’ve rotated the hive body, so that the BuzzBox is on the back)

Hey everyone!

This is my first attempt at Beekeeping and I went all in with a BuzzBox. I have a Langstroth with beeswax foundations. The monitor is on the backside of my bottom brood box. Feel free to follow me on Instagram too @simplyand

Here is my BuzzBox setup in my backyard bee yard…

Here’s my set-up so far:

Might want to look into extending the solar panel cord so it actually sees some sun:

Mind you there are no bees in the buzzbox hive yet. Only in the other one + a nuc I made that had smaller frames.

Hi,

My name is Matt and these are 2 of my Saskatraz colonies in southern Minnesota.

I have one buzzbox installed on the right hand side hive. I have found a strong, reliable connection with the TP Link WiFi Extender and antenna extension at 300 feet from the house.

Really liking the new app updates, ordering a second buzzbox.

Cheers,

Matt

Tristan, I am wondering about my buzzbox mini delivery. I received the email about delay in delivery but no further updates.
