The SHIFTER ZR4 is Escorts most advanced defense system against targeting laser guns. The SHIFTER ZR4 includes (2) front-mounted and (1) rear license plate mounted laser transceivers, interface module, display controller with audible and visual alerts, and a remote mute button.
The SHIFTER ZR4's High performance "Multi-Shift" laser transceivers provide maximum protection against laser targeting and CINCINNATI MICROWAVE's exclusive "link" design allows you to connect the SHIFTER ZR4Â™ to select ESCORT radar detectors (Passport 9500i Blue, Passport 9500i Red, Passport 8500 X50 Blue, Passport 8500 X50 Red, Passport 8500, Cordless Solo S2 and Passport SR7) Beltronics radar detectors (RX65 Blue, RX65 Red, STi, Vector 995, Vector 965, Vector 955, Vector 940) providing the ultimate protection against all forms of radar and laser encounters. This combination of detection and "shifting" is the best protection available!
What is LASER?
LASER technology used to measure speed is actually called LIDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging. This light is invisible to the human eye, and is very difficult to detect.
How do LASER Guns work?
LIDAR guns project a beam of invisible infrared light. This light, or signal, is transmitted in a series of very short pulses, which move in a straight and narrow line to the target vehicle. Once this signal hits your vehicle, the light bounces back to the LIDAR gun. Your speed is then calculated by measuring the change in distance over time.
How widespread is LIDAR?
It's estimated that over 25,000 LIDAR guns are in use today. This number is growing every day. In some areas it has become the standard issue for law enforcement.
How serious a threat is LIDAR?
LIDAR is a newer technology for measuring speed than conventional radar, therefore, you may not encounter it on a daily basis. However, LIDAR is much more accurate, and because the signal (beam of light) is much narrower, it is extremely difficult to detect. In fact, some of the best radar/laser detectors may not provide enough warning to adjust your speed.
How do I defend myself against LIDAR?
Introducing the new Laser Shifter ZR3 - the ultimate laser (LIDAR) defense system from Escort. The new Laser Shifter ZR3 is equipped with a total of three (2 front, 1 rear) laser "Shifters." These highly sensitive transceivers detect the presence of LIDAR, and respond with a pulsed laser signal in order to "Shift" or confuse the targeting LIDAR gun.
Do I need front and rear LIDAR protection?
YES! Law enforcement officers can target your vehicle from the front or the rear. Some speed traps are designed with the officer positioned on an entrance ramp, providing no visual indication of their presence. The rear sensor of the Laser Shifter ZR3 protects you from this kind of ambush.
