In recent years, stingless bee honey has gained popularity due to its health benefits and commercial potential. There is a worrying tendency of bee colonies leaving its hives suddenly, and a specific research has been done to monitor the insect's habits. This project proposed a testbed for a stingless beehive monitoring system capable of capturing sensory data that provides an accurate indication of the bee's health and activity. This project utilises a raspberry pi gateway as a LoRa packet forwarder and four Arduino end nodes to collect sensor data from stingless beehives. The outcome showed that all planned functionalities had been accomplished, and these characteristics are expected to provide sufficient information to the beekeeper to take appropriate action to avert colony collapse. Future studies will focus on the modelling and correlation of measured environmental data in order to forecast bee colony loss.
