The Internet of Things for Beekeeping ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
An unofficial report on the Beekeeping meeting.
What happens when a retired database expert takes up beekeeping? We Found out. To over simplify the discussion, Ray told us about inexpensive sensors, available commercially with Bluetooth and WiFi communications. We also learned vendors are re-purposing obsolete cell phones into an inexpensive local to cell network packages. From there to data plotting and bee management was the easy part. The big take-away for me was to learn that information can be collected at a low cost where that is important. This is a joining of inset managment with the Maker Movement.
ANNOUNCING THE FAMOUS WISA SHRIMP BOIL
Next Tuesday, the 24th Wilmington Section ISA will be holding our annual Shrimp Boil! The event kicks off around 5:30 at Applied Control Engineering's facility in Newark. There will be plenty of free food and drink for all thanks to our generous vendors.
We hope to see you there!
FLYER please post
The Longwood Tour was Great. This was a rare oportunity to see the completely new Longwood from 'behind the curtain' all the new pumps, the controls, the nozzles which will send water into the air. We saw the control room and the computers which will create fantastic displays beyond anything seen before. The new substation and the huge emergency generators, all new and perfect. The tour guides were very knowledgable and helpful.
Since we still have several spots available for the tour of Longwood Gardens next Thursday, we are opening the event up to guests as well.
If you have a friend, coworker, significant other, or potential new ISA member who would be interested in seeing and learning about the systems that help Longwood Gardens put on their spectacular shows, please have them RSVP by registering with the link in the attachment.
I need to provide David with a final head count by the end of the day on Friday so he can ensure there will be enough food and reserve a shuttle with enough seats for all of us.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
