If you were among the first to order a BroodMinder, you may have already received your order. My own order has been delayed by a mailing address interpretation error, whereby Stamps.com suggests a variety of addresses other than the one I submitted, none of which work but all of which look nice. Or so I’m told.
I know the problem will resolve, but in the meantime, if any of you have impressions, comments, or data to share, please let me know. Since I cannot yet share my own info, I’d be happy to share yours.
As promised, I also set up a page where you can leave comments about the BroodMinder at any time. The page is labeled “BroodMinder” and a link to it can be found on the top menu of any page. You can leave comments there or, if you want to leave photos, spreadsheets, or other info about your BroodMinder experience, directions are on that page. Data sharing will also be available at BroodMinder.com.
If you don’t already know, a BroodMinder is a device designed specifically for bee hives that monitors and logs the temperature and humidity inside the hive once every hour. Wireless updates are sent to your Apple or Android phone or tablet so you can monitor colony health without opening your hive in freezing temperatures.
The folks at BroodMinder were shooting for a December 1 ship date for the new device and, much to their credit, the first ones went out right on schedule. I can also say I’ve been in contact with the company owner on several occasions and I’m quite impressed. Good people.
It appears that you can still order a BroodMinder device on the Indiegogo website for $60 plus shipping.
Please leave comments on my BroodMinder page. Thank you.
