Using your WaggleNet system is as simple as sitting by the fireplace on a winter morning. Just connect your sensors out in the field, and monitor your bees from the comfort of your home.
Sensors act as the eyes and ears of the WaggleNet system, collecting data about the hive and its surroundings. Different sensors collect different information, such as temperature and humidity, and in order to get a better understanding of the hive, multiple sensor can be chained together.
Nodes are responsible for powering, connecting, and taking information from various sensors and transmitting it wirelessly to a WaggleNet Router. Additionally, nodes can work together and form a network in order to extend their wireless range.
WaggleNet Routers connect the entire node network to the Internet by receiving, translating, and relaying messages from nodes to the WaggleNet Cloud.
