API-Smart for connected bees

Protecting our natural resources is now an absolute priority !

Protecting natural resources and biodiversity, which is now a global priority, depends upon our ability to protect bees.Bee health is a bioindicator of air quality and pollination by bees is vital for the continuation of agriculture. At present, the death toll among bees continues to rise.

API-Smart® is a program aimed at reversing this trend, taking part in the drive to re-establish and increase the numbers of beehives, using the potential benefits of new technology to make bees a natural bioindicator of action taken to protect biodiversity.
API-Smart® is used to equip beehives with connected sensors. The data collected is compared against other environmental data (weather, air quality, hydric stress maps, flora and fauna, etc.).

This data is analysed in real time to assess bee health and define the environmental health of the area in which the hives are located.

The program focuses on 3 types of action :


Manage your beehives and help protect biodiversity.

Protect biodiversity and manage your connected beehives.

Supply of
connected beehives (3 per colony).
Complete beekeeper’s management software.


Monitor environment quality using our bioindicator.
