What beekeepers say

Alichos Vasilis

It is a reliable scale with a very good accuracy. Configuration is very easy and the 3 batteries are enough for at least 6 months. It has become an absolutely necessary tool in my beekeeping occupation.

I got it working very easy. Just use 3 AA batteries with a sim card without pin. The scale includes an embedded anti-theft system. If someone steal it it starts sending sms every 20 minutes with its coordinates. So I put it under one beehive and it starts sending me messages every day at 21:00…
