Nix color sensors connect to your phone via Bluetooth and allow you to scan and identify colors you see in the real world. Imagine walking into a restaurant and falling in love with the wall color. It’s doubtful any employee will know the specific paint they used and a picture isn’t always accurate. This is where the sensor comes in handy. As long as you have a solid 0.5-inch area of the color, the Nix sensor can match that wall hue with up to 31,000 paint colors or color values in its system. The sensor blocks out all ambient light and uses its own internal light source to read the surface. Today, two nix models are on sale for up to 30 percent off—the Nix Mini and the Nix Pro. The Nix Pro model comes with all the same functionality as the Mini, but also allows you bring in your own custom color libraries, create A/B color comparisons, and export your saved data. $69 and $259.
