In this paper, the construction of an IoT system for precision stingless bee farming is presented. In the proposed system, the weight, the internal and external temperatures and the relative humidity of the beehive are the data being monitored. Sensors utilized are load cell sensors and DHT22 temperature and humidity sensors. The main hardware setup was built using a NodeMCU microcontroller. Data from the proposed system were collected for 36 hours and the collected data was periodically saved into a cloud storage for an interval of every 7 seconds. From the results obtained, the honey produced by the beehives are recorded at 2.63 kg. Meanwhile, the maximum external temperature recorded was 30.6 0C, and the minimum external relative humidity was recorded at 67.6 %. From these information, the production of the stingless beehive honey production, as well as the security of the beehive from being stolen or vandalize can be predicted. Moreover, the health of the beehive from fungus growth can be estimated in the future. The platform has all functionalities of an advanced monitoring system, complete with an IoT application.
