For working of some services such as Internet it is necessary to set Acces Point Name (APN) by sending one SMS.
The beekeeper sets APN (for mobile operaters in Serbia) by sending the scale a message:
APN gprswap – for Telekom
APN internet – for Telenor
APN vipmobile – for VIP

After this SMS, all services are activated.

GSM position

Geolocation is a new service available in our beekeeper's SMS Scales of second generation.

Some terms often affiliated with the SMS Scales are GPS Scales, GRPS Scales… Here we would like to clarify that the SMS Scale of second generation uses GSM technology for positioning.

Using the GSM technology the SMS Scales can approximately (will relative accuracy) send the beekeeper a text message with the coordinates and the link for a visual using Google maps or Google Earth. The SMS message will be sent to the beekeeper after he previously sends a message with the following contents:

The SMS Scales replies with a message containing standard information and the coordinates with a link to Google Maps or Earth. When you click on the link you get in your message either on your smart phone or e-mail it will take you to an address where the location of the SMS Scales will be shown. The message looks like this:

ID001 – MyApiary A1
Mountain 2
Lat: 43.392325
Lon: 21.494751

Note: Due to imperfection in the GSM technology, locating can be off by up to several hundred meters. The SMS Scale Team is constantly working on improving this function with a continuing consultation with experts in local mobile operators.

E-mail report

E-mail is a function available from the second version of the SMS Scales and it enables the beekeeper to get reports from his beehives via e-mail as well. It is necessary that the SIM card be from a package which supports Internet of any mobile phone operator.
The beekeeper sets to which e-mail he will get reports by sending the scale a message:
EMAIL This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
The e-mail the beekeeper gets contains all the information as in SMS message in MOD1, along with the balance of the card in the SMS Scales.

For slightly advanced users there is also a possibility for themselves to set up their own e-mail server.
