SURFiR Companion Remote Control
The SURFiR adds the convenience of hard buttons for tactile control to systems using Apple® or Android® devices as the main graphical interface.

The SURFiR adds the convenience of hard buttons for tactile control to systems using Apple® or Android® devices as the main graphical interface. This eliminates the numerous screen swipes needed for control tasks that require frequent interaction such as channel changes, DVR control or volume adjustments. The SURFiR allows the user to enjoy the other benefits of their smart phone or tablet device: checking email, reading news feeds, accessing social media, etc. To further enhance the experience for the user, the SURFiR can track which electronic device is being controlled by the RTiPanel app and automatically controls the same. Powerful and intuitive control in an inexpensive package — everything you desire in a companion remote.

NOTE: SURFiR does not have IR capability. Also, an RM-433 433MHz antenna or ZM-24 2.4GHz Transceiver Module and an XP series control processor must be used with this model of remote. When used with an XP-3 control processor, 2.4GHz Zigbee RF must be used. 433MHz RF is NOT supported with XP-3 via the RM-433.

  • Integration Designer software only available to authorized RTI dealers.
