Pico Paint Matching Device sequentially bursts red, green and blue light onto the surface you scan. Pico sends the results via Bluetooth in your phone’s Pico app. Pico reports the RGB values and matching branded paint colours.  Pico finds the RGB and HEX colour of a surface. There are other colour spaces as well, like LAB, CMYK and LRV.  

The Pico Colour Matching Device is third-party verified to be among the most accurate colour matching devices available. Matching accuracy on collections of thousands of colours is typically 90% or higher. The device has been designed to be more sensitive on near-white colours (the most critical to get right).

The Pico Paint Colour Reader seamlessly pairs with the Pico smartphone app using Bluetooth.

Built almost entirely from brushed aluminium, the Pico Paint Reader is tough and able to withstand significant abuse without any deterioration in quality.

The sensor is recessed and protected by a cap when not in use, which also doubles as a calibration tile, keeping the device accurate at all times. A lanyard helps keep the device conveniently attached.
