I have had a few questions about the data logger that I have on my hives, the design of it, and some of the data. I am starting a thread covering my system, the data, and what I would do different. I am going to initially grab the first several posts as place holders, one post per data set/function. I am doing this because I think there is a 4/5 picture per post limit.
Keep in mind that all of this data is from a single hive at a single location. I started beekeeping in 2017, and started the data logger running (about a week) before I got my first package. I have learned what I am doing a lot better since I started and some of this may show up in some of the things I have done. Having data on a hive does not replace a proper inspection, and will not tell you if a hive is crashing due to mites, is queen less, or has some other problem(s) going on.
If you have any requests for specific data sets, generic questions, or anything else ask away, and I will see what I can do.
The data graphs are mostly in 2 formats, one where I display all of the data sequentially, and one where I display it based on the calendar date and overlay each year. In addition to the long term graphs I also have graphs for most months, but I have found the long term (year over year) data more interesting in most cases.
Unfortunately I lost this hive in October 2019, so the data sort of flat lines/follows ambient at that point. I lost this hives due to mites, but that is a discussion that I have covered elsewhere and do not want to go into detail about in this thread.
Enjoy, and hopefully this is insightful and interesting to some of the people on here.
