Beehive anti-theft protection
The alarm function can be set up in multiple ways. The beekeeper can protect everything by setting up micro-switches, magnetic sensors or sensors to cover a certain area.
Micro-switches are mounted under the SMS Scale, beehive, beehive lid, inside the vehicle… and with one two wire cable is connected to the electronics of the SMS Scales which has an alarm spot. In case of some movement on the protected area the beekeeper gets a warning SMS message.
The magnetic sensors work on a similar principle. They are made out of two connected parts out of which one is connected by cable to the SMS Scales. They are set up to protect the door of the vehicle or any other object that can be moved. When a movement occurs the beekeeper gets a warning SMS message.
Sensors which cover a certain area work the same way as alarms for protection of a business area or living area by covering a certain space and in case of anyone entering the area which is protected the beekeeper gets a warning SMS message. All the sensors are connected to the SMS Scale and should be placed properly so no space is left unprotected. For setting up this system it may be best to consult with a person who's job is to install this type of alarm.
Once the beekeeper has finished setting up the protection he needs to send a text message with the following contents:
From that moment the alarm is turned on and any breach will result in the beekeeper getting a warning SMS message.
When the beekeeper needs to visit his hives he needs to send the following contents:
The alarm will be deactivated and the beekeeper can go on with his activities normally.
In the case that somebody copromise safety the beekeeper receives SMS:
