How to open ESS files

Did your computer fail to open an ESS file? We explain what ESS files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your files.

What is an ESS file?

ESS files are Ekahau Site Survey File files, which you can read more about below.

The ESS file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So an ESS opener may not be able to open all kinds of ESS files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.

These ESS files contain the Wi-Fi site surveys created in Ekahau Survey, a professional Wi-Fi site survey application. These ESS files are used on iPhone and iPad to give you a optimized and fast user experience.
