Escort ZW5 with ShifterMax laser shifters

The Escort ZW5 is the wireless version of Escort’s most advanced laser jammer ever, the ZW5/ZR5 and is being positioned to be the most effective and efficient laser jammer on the market. The Escort ZW5 replaces the now discontinued Laser ShifterPro and is designed to combat the most advanced police laser guns being used today by traffic enforcement.

How the Escort ZW5 works

The Escort ZW5 comes equipped with two high performance Shifter Max very small laser transceivers that you mount in the grill area of your car or truck.

Once a police laser threat is detected, their Infrared diodes will light up, jamming the police officers laser gun while also alerting you of the threat with both an audible and visual alert.

While the laser jammer is activated, you will have time to check and adjust your speed accordingly. Once your laser jammer is activated and you have adjusted your speed, it is advisable to deactivate the jammer either manually or automatically through it’s software, so the officer can capture your speed (while you’re doing the speed limit).

Being wireless, there is no need to drill through your vehicle’s firewall, making installation much easier.

Wireless communication between sensors and radar detector provides a simple installation.

Required Hardware

ZW5 will not operate on its own. A compatible radar detector* is required to use ZW5.
*ZW5 is currently compatible with MAX 360MAX 360c and RedLine EX. Compatibility with the following detectors will be added at a later date: Passport MAX, MAX 2, ESCORT iX, PASSPORT, X70, X80, and Beltronics GT-7.

Software Upgradable

Unlike Escort’s ZR4, you can update your ZW5/ZR5 online using your PC, so your jammer is always up-to-date.


Typical install time for a do-it-yourself install is about an hour, and you will be guided through the entire process using the enclosed step-by-step instructions.

If you don’t feel comfortable doing the install yourself, I would then contact your local Best Buy store that has a 12-volt install department or any other mobile electronics installer.

Installation prices vary by location and the type of vehicle.


As an authorized reseller for all Escort products, your Escort ZW5 comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.


Laser is regulated by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and not the FCC. There are currently no federal laws prohibiting the use of this device on a passenger vehicle.

However, there are currently 12 states in the USA that do outlaw the use of laser jamming devices, they are: South Carolina, Nebraska, Minnesota, Utah, California, Oklahoma, Virginia, Colorado, Illinois, Texas, Tennessee and Washington DC.

Therefore, if you do drive in these areas it’s advisable to program your device as a receiver only or to automatically shut off once activated.
