Hive Identification Discs (HIDs)
The HID uses a QR code (2-dimensional bar code) to individually identify any hive, anywhere. The Bee.Watch app has an embedded QR reader.
The Bee.Watch app will only identify the User's own hives and if HIDs from another apiary are read the app will report an error. When the app reads the QR code it either creates a new hive record in the apiary or allows colony details to be updated for an existing hive.
The QR codes are printed on weather resistant labels which have marine grade glue. They can be stuck directly onto untreated hives or onto a disc which is screwed to the hive. They are supplied in units of 6, the number on one sheet. The QR code should be attached to the front or the back of the brood box and there is no necessity to remove it.
