West Chester, OH (PRWEB) June 19, 2012
ESCORT Inc. (http://www.ESCORTinc.com), designer of the world’s best performing radar and laser detectors, today announced it is continuing to build on the overwhelming success of its award winning ESCORT Live™ ticket protection network by releasing accessory products that directly support ESCORT Live™ app users. Now available are new Bluetooth® enabled Direct Wire accessory Smartcords™ that will allow the large number of current ESCORT owners with hard wired or custom installed radar detectors to conveniently connect with the ESCORT Live™ network.
“Our new Bluetooth® enabled SmartCord Live™ Direct Wire kits and custom installed cords will dramatically widen the reach of the ESCORT Live™ nation since a significant portion of ESCORT radar detector owners are already using direct wire and custom installations for their units,” said Dave Smidebush, ESCORT Vice-president of Marketing. “The population of ESCORT Live™ ‘scouts’ continues to grow exponentially and our new accessory products will reinforce that expansion.”
ESCORT Live™ uses Bluetooth® technology embedded in SmartCord Live™ cords, including the new Direct Wire and custom installed cords, and a unique app for the driver’s smartphone. When alerts are detected, they are transmitted to the ESCORT Live™ “cloud” and then broadcast across the ESCORT Live™ network, notifying a nation of ESCORT drivers of potential ticket threats.
Also recently released, ESCORT’s SmartRadar™ Bluetooth Enabled Radar/Laser Detector is a complete, supercharged, quick-install radar/laser detector with built-in Bluetooth® wireless technology for connection to mobile phones and other Bluetooth devices. Small and compact, SmartRadar™ is exclusively and fully compatible with the ESCORT Live™ ticket protection smartphone application (iPhone and Android models).
ESCORT will be demonstrating both the SmartRadar™ supercharged radar/laser detector and the ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app at two major New York City press events this week: Propel’s Gift Guide show on Wednesday and then on Thursday at the Pepcom Digital Experience press event. The Propel Gift Guide press event is scheduled for June 20, 11 am – 3 pm, at the Marriott Marquis Times Square – Pepcom is scheduled for June 21, 6 – 9 pm, at the Metropolitan Pavilion.
ESCORT Live™ has repeatedly been named a leading new technology (Edmunds ‘top ten best new product’, Popular Mechanics Editor’s Choice, Car and Driver ‘Top Ten Most Promising New Technology’ award winner, ‘Best New Mobile Product’, SEMA and a CNET ‘must see’ new product).
Customer reaction to the ESCORT Live™ app and its social networking protection has been overwhelmingly favorable. "Not only are our customers hugely favorable to the network, but now every direct wire and custom installed user has the opportunity to easily join ESCORT Nation," said Smidebush.
The new Bluetooth® enabled SmartCord Live™ Direct Wire kits and custom installed cords and the new SmartRadar™ unit along with ESCORT Live™ and ESCORT’s complete line of premium automotive accessories can be seen at ESCORTinc.com or, call 800.433.3487.
