API-Smart for connected bees

Protecting our natural resources is now an absolute priority !

Protecting natural resources and biodiversity has become a global priority, and this means protecting bees, whose health is a bio-indicator of air quality and whose work as pollinators is crucial to the survival of farming. But bees are dying at increasing rates.

The API-Smart® programme is designed to reverse this phenomenon by helping to reintroduce hives into our local areas and increase their numbers while exploiting the potential of new technologies to make bees a natural bio-indicator of biodiversity measures.

API-Smart® involves fitting hives with smart sensors and cross-referencing the data they produce with other environmental data (weather, air quality, water mapping, plant and animal life, and more).

Real-time analysis of this data provides an overview of the bees’ health and helps to determine the condition of the environment in which the hives are located.

The benefits:

A honey bee colony biomonitoring service designed to:

  • Assess the quality of the environment (mortality rate),
  • Assess the resources available to pollinators (nectar and pollen),
  • Assess the impact of climate change.

The positive impact of your practices:

  • You gain access to the knowledge of renowned scientific experts.
  • You get relevant, reliable CSR indicators.
  • You can arrange visits to your hives for educational events and to showcase your commitment to your clients.
  • You can monitor and display developments in your hives in real time.
  • You can demonstrate your environmental responsibility.

You benefit from a dedicated communication resource to share your values!

Your biodiversity indicators

  • Assess whether your bees have enough resources to last the winter.
  • Measure the quality of flower resources over the course of the year.
  • Determine the diversity of flowers your bees have access to over the year.
  • Get recommendations on improving biodiversity.

Vital Data

Together, we collect data on bees’ activity and health.

programme apismart

The 1st AI hive monitoring solution for environmental biomonitoring.

schéma apismart

Our 360° measuring approach gathers bee activity and health data continuously and automatically

in partnership with two French start-ups

Our bee counter uses Artificial Intelligence to capture and perform on-board analysis of the video feed of the hive’s landing board.

It automatically counts the number of bees entering and leaving the hive, allowing you to:

  • Measure flows of foraging bees throughout the day,
  • Determine the hive’s daily mortality rate
