ETC's aRFR mobile app offers up-to-date, touchscreen-based remote control for your Eos console, designed for use over a closed wireless network.
The app accesses most live mode commands available on a desk. The app also takes advantage of augmented-reality technology to turn your device into an interactive “Focus Wand.” After scanning an AR target placed in your space, you’ll be able to view and to select your lights using the camera on your phone, swipe up or down to control intensity, pinch for zoom, and point your beams with the “find me” function or by using your phone as a pointer.
The aRFR works with all Eos® family consoles, Eos and Ion® Remote Processor Units, and the Eos ETCnomad and ETCnomad Puck® software.
Use of the application requires Eos family software v2.6 or higher and Android software v2.2 or higher. Focus Wand functions require Eos family software v3.0 or higher.
The aRFR can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. Limited functionality is available at no charge. An in-app purchase unlocks the full operations of the remote. All proceeds are donated to charity. At the point of purchase, you will be able to choose between the aRFR – BTS (Behind the Scenes, a US-based group providing support to production personnel in times of need) or aRFR – Backup (a similar, UK-based charity).

Note: If you purchased the old version of the app (prior to July, 2017), you can update to the revised software simply by updating your aRFR application. If you prefer the original functionality, you can now download the aRFR Classic at no charge. Please note that only the
aRFR Classic is compatible with Cobalt software.
