Low-maintance realtime monitoring of groundwater levels
The Blik Sensing dashboard is made for water management en offers a simple and clear overview of all measurements (also available through Excel – CSV).
The measurements are delivered to the cloud through the network of KPN and Blik Sensing securely stores them. It is no longer nessescary to visit the node to get your data.
Safe up to 94% on your operational cost compared to manual measuring. With a clear price-structure Blik lowers the bar to an automated grid.
The Blik Water node fits perfectly into any watermanagement strategy build on affordability, empirical workflow and quick response times.

Efficient and clear
Purpose built and streamlined to deliver a clear insight into the groundwaterlevel. Already within one hour of installation the first results can be studied* and the node requires no maintenance. The whole chain consists of 1 integrated sensor/telemetry solution to save time and money.
Simple and robust
Our node is simple to use, build robustly and can operate up to 8 years* on one set of batteries. The node is placed on top of the well and the digital depth gage is placed inside. The length of the cable can be specified before installation ensuring a perfect fit. No other infrastructure is needed – the measurements are sent to the dashboard through LoRa by KPN. No need to install cables for either power or data. The node is robust – it can survive submersion in water and drift is kept to a minimum. Additionally we have developed proprietary software that allows us to resend any ‘missed’ messages due to adverse connection interference to ensure there is never a gap in your data.

Built with experience
Blik Water has been built with the experience of more that a million measurements completed. It exceeds the needs of hydrologists and water managers alike. In cooperation with our research partners, users and government compliance programs we have incorporated a lot of feedback in this new version of our product. Our node also users the reliable and accurate sensor produced by Keller AG. This sensor is a worldwide class leader in accuracy, reliability and durability. Swiss reliability and Dutch innovation ensure our nodes are easily and durably deployed for any type of project.

Built for water management
A solution made by Blik Sensing especially for the demands of the groundwater community. We are open to feedback and new features are rolled out frequently.
See all the information the node collects in one easy to use dashboard and make your organisation data-driven. The data is also accessible with Excel.
Integration with your systems
By utilizing a REST-API the same data that is delivered through the Blik dashboard can also be processed automatically with other systems, for example a hydrological software suite.
Our customers utilize our sensors for a wide range of projects, from agriculture to protection of infrastructure and communities. Below you can find a number of examples where Blik Water contributes to quick, simple and effective solutions.

Easy and reliable installation
The latest (v2) version of our Blik Water node is designed and engineered with the input of our users to be even simpler to install and use. With a new, innovative modulair design our node is easily installed in any environment with minimal calibration and maintenance work needed. Next to this we enhanced our digital platform so that keeping track of changes and installation parameters has become much simpler to ensure accuracy. These improvements make our Blik Water node an excellent choice to minimize operational risk and streamline your operations.
We haven taken a lot of care in ensuring our node is reliable. Drift is kept at an absolute minimum and the node can survive harsh external conditions, including being fully submerged. Additionally the node will use our proprietary software to resend any ‘missed’ messaged due to adverse connection interference to ensure there are no gaps in your data. These elements ensure a long, durable and reliable life-span.
De node and antenna are joined together to create a simple and robust product that’s class-leading in operational efficiency.
What are the capabilities of the node?
With the node it is possible to simply and durably get insight into groundwater levels. The node measures the water level up to the top of the well it is installed in and the water and (outside) air temperature. The node can be extended and modified to fit the needs of your organisation.
How long do the batteries last?
The node has an exceptional lifespan of up to 8 years when measuring twice a day. With a higher frequency of measurement we can match this lifespan with the help of extra battery capacity add an extra cost.
What do I need to get started?
A finished pipe (well). Other than that there is no need for extra infrastructure – no expensive cables for data or power.
How do I get access to my data?
Via the Blik Sensing dashboard you can see the measurements per node en download them to Excel (via CSV). Additionally we can integrate the data with your technology stack via a REST api – contact us today!
