The iRFR from ETC provides a remote for any Eos family lighting system (Eos, Eos Ti, Gio, Gio @5, Ion, Element and Eos/Ion Remote Processors). This application requires Eos family software 2.6 or higher on the connected lighting system. Please note the iRFR is NOT support by Cobalt.

The iRFR supports most features needed for programming and playback. It does not support remote patching and system configuration. A tab-based system changes the displays from the full keyboard, moving light controls, direct selects, playback tools and a cue list. Security controls prevent un-authorized access to a lighting system.

Now is not working


I have been using this app for last 3 years and it has been awesome. Viewer with the newest update I can’t use it anymore. The app still sees the console but it says “the remote is disconnected”

Tried to delete it and create a new one obviously with the same console name since everything is the same plus the regular updates on council, iPhone and the app itself.

Does anyone has similar problem or does is know how to fix this “remote discovered”



How GH


Textual. Doesn’t utilize the graphical Power, flexibility, intuitiveness and beauty of the iPad.
It should basically be a touchable, shapeable Magic Sheet.
Not a hard representation of the light board face.

You were ahead of your time in light board software.
But need to catch up in the current paradigm: wireless screens.

I’ve ideas. If you want, get in touch.

Issues, but good overall


For a combined cost of about $350 for an ipod touch, wireless router, and this app, you can have a full function RFR device. For that reason alone, I'd buy it again in a heart beat. Add an iPad, which allows for notes to be taken on individual cues and you've got a great system.

But, there are some issues and improvements that need to be made. The device often disconnects from the console. Some days it will last for hours with no problem, some days it will disconnect about every minute (and yes, I pulled out a stop watch). This is a more of a pain if you're in the Cue List, or Playback screens as the button to return to the Welcome screen will vanish and a force close is required. Most of the time it's mearly an annoyance.

In Cue List, and Playback, the timing column is almost useless. It displays only the overall cue duration (including any delays), not the split up/down time. This makes it very difficult to take accurate notes during tech about timing issues.

On the plus side, the moving light pan/tilt control is wonderful, and usually more accurate and less frustrating than the virtual moving light control on the Element.

I have iPod Touches equiped with iRFR and Lightwright Touch in the hands of both of my electricians and will never regret this decision. They now have everything they need for preshow checks and trouble shooting in their pockets instead of a 3 ring binder and RFR device clipped to a belt.
