The Escort ZR3 Laser Shifter Has Been Discontinued and Replaced by ZR4 Laser Shifter
Escort ZR3 Laser Shifter:
This isn't a laser detector, it's a laser defense system. Introducing the new Laser Shifter ZR3 - the ultimate laser (LIDAR) defense system from Escort. This product will work as a stand alone unit or can be connected and controleed from Escort & Beltronics radar detectors.
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.
Is Laser "Shifting" safe?
YES! The Food and Drug Administration regulates the use of Laser. The Laser Shifter ZR3 is safe, and accurate against targeting laser guns. However, this type of product may be limited or prohibited in some jurisdictions.
There are no federal laws restricting the use of laser jammers. However, some states may regulate their use. The use of laser jammers is prohibited and/or restricted in California, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Utah. Check your local laws before using the laser "shifting" feature of the ZR3.
What control do I have over the Laser Shifter ZR3?
The Laser Shifter ZR3 is packed with useful features including front and rear indicators, volume control, mute, and manual "receive only" mode (patent pending). Since some of the LIDAR guns are equipped with "jamming codes," our exclusive "receive only" mode allows you to disarm the shifters during an alert - minimizing attention from the targeting officer.
Can I use the Laser Shifter ZR3 with my current radar/laser detector?
Yes. In fact, Escorts's exclusive design allows you to link the new Laser Shifter ZR3 to the award-winning Passport 8500 X50 - providing the ultimate protection against all forms of radar and laser encounters. This combination of detection and Laser Shifting is the best protection available.
The Laser Shifter ZR3 may also be used to add laser shifting capability to the Cordless Solo S2, the Passport 7500S, or the custom-installed Passport SR7.
Comes Fully Equipped
The Laser Shifter ZR3 comes complete with a comprehensive owner's manual, installation instructions, two front laser transceivers, one rear laser transceiver, in-car display controller, remote mute button, 12-volt interface with modular connections, complete wiring harnesses, mounting hardware, and Link Cable for connecting to the Passport 8500 or the Solo S2.
