The BeeCam 5000 is back online. The Mark I model only lasted a bit over 3 days with the original battery and solar panel configuation. I had my top scientists work on the problem (thanks Matt!), and after a redesign with a deep cycle battery, it has been redeployed into the field.
So I’ll finally be able to check the bees in the evening with the cooler weather and see if they are still clustering outside the hive.
