Why is collecting data essential?

What is Nix?

Nix is a powerful online software platform for the collection, management and sharing of data from various sources including meters, loggers, sensors, websites, databases and your existing infrastructure.

While Nix can be used for any industry with monitoring needs we have developed special expertise in catering to the water industry. Nix is available on a casual subscription basis or as customised licensed software. There are options to consider, but typically the subscription is under $10/month per data feed.

Why is it unique?

The software architecture is open, with no ties to particular hardware and no limitations to the type, format or source of the data streams. We can integrate with your old systems and/or bring your data across alongside your new systems.

WHAT DATA DOES NIX COLLECT?

The data is anything that you need to measure against time. It might be temperature, a flow rate, distance travelled, soil moisture, pressure, voltage, current or bytes - to name a few.

Nix supports a large number of different types of data and units out of the box and more can be easily added
