The Escort ZR5 laser defense system from Perzan Auto Radio in Upper Darby gives your portable radar detector the ability to defend against police lidar. Designed as an upgrade for the Max 360, the MAX 360c, the RedLine EX and the Escort iXc, this laser shifter system not only alerts you to the use of police laser guns, it prevents an officer from measuring your speed until you deactivate the system.
How Does the Escort ZR5 Work?
The ZR5 is a stand-alone laser defense system that uses the same technology found in our MAX CI 360 custom-installed radar and laser defense system. The base system includes a control module, an interface panel and a pair of our ShifterMax laser transceivers. For clients who are concerned about the use of the latest lidar systems like DragonEye, we can add a third ShifterMax transceiver to the front of your vehicle for increased protection.
When the ZR5 detects a signal from a lidar gun, it automatically transmits a signal that confuses the software in the gun and prevents it from taking a reading. You have a few seconds to ensure you are traveling at a legal speed, then you can cancel the signal transmission to let the officer get a reading. Knowing you are legal, you can continue on your merry way.
Radar Detector Integration
The ZR5 system can operate as a stand-alone laser defense solution or be integrated with one of the aforementioned portable radar detectors. Information about laser alerts will be displayed on the screen of the portable detector, and the control module under the dash provides an audible warning at the same time.
Expert Installation and Configuration
The installation of laser defense systems like the ZR5 requires professional integration and calibration. The position of the ShifterMax sensors and their alignment is crucial to the performance and reliability of the system. Our team has installed thousands of radar detectors over the years and has the tools and training to ensure that you get the most from your investment. We take care to mount every component securely in a location that maximizes performance and reliability. Finally, we will mount any control panels or displays in the vehicle so that they look as though they are part of the car and not an afterthought.
