Paint can take years before discoloration starts to be noticeable. However, if one of your clients is sure their wall is one color while your expertise points another direction, you can find out for sure with a Nix Color Sensor. This pocket-sized device should help you identify the color on almost anything, and it's only $59.

You might astonish your client when you can match their fading paint with a modern counterpart. Nix can scan almost any surface, including walls, vinyl, leather, plastic, fabric, dyes, and more. Your scan will be compared with a collection of more than 100,000 brand-name paint colors. If you want to find their digital color counterparts, get the HEX, CMYK, and LAB color codes.

Nix is a sturdy, simple precision tool that could travel in a pocket or tackle box. The lightweight solid-state tool pairs with your phone using Bluetooth and the Nix app to browse saved color palettes or share colors with customers, colleagues, and friends. The unique scanner design blocks all ambient light when you put it against a scannable surface.

If you're a rental property owner, you may appreciate a way to identify paint colors without hiring an expert. Maintain your property and see if it's Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore, or another major paint brand.

The Nix has worked well for a verified buyer who works in construction: "In construction these days, you have to be versatile. Painting has been something I'm able to do, matching paint is not my strong point. The nix Mini was easy to set up, easy to use and spot on with a match. Makes me look like a real paint pro."

For a limited time, get the Nix Mini Color Sensor V2 for just $59 (reg. $83.95).
