Only Canon and Nikon cameras are supported, and it's not going to change any time soon:

Helicon Remote does not support cameras of other brands because they are not compatible with the required remote control protocol or do not have the relevant features (e.g. Live View, focus adjustment etc.).

Thank you, this is interesting. Although I've scrolled through the documentation and didn't see a way to control the focus position manually as required for focus bracketing.
