I am also about to start a little opp and that was one of my worries as well, I thought the cops couldnt use helicopter detection without a warrant or something? plus im pretty sure if ur only growing a few plants they wouldnt be able to tell from the INFIR detection
I hope that is the case, but we get at least 2 helis around here everyweek so I would say that the chances of them just stumbling across it would be decent, which is why I want to be extra safe.. I'll definately look out for the sheeting aswell. Thnks for the replys. Keep em coming..

Depends how big of an Ops you have, you shouldn't worry if it's small (250 w, 400 w, 600w) the only thing these helicopters look for is HEAT BEING PUMPED OUT of your house at an anormal place. If you watch the DVD Never Get Busted again. This ex DEA agent will tell you all you need to know.
I will youtube it.. As for the wattage, maybe between 1500-2000w, now you can see why I'm looking for something reliable..

You said you get choppers flying around regularly, so you're definitely going to want some protection. Aluminum foil is an excellent reflector of infrared light (heat), so I'd cover the inside of your roof with the stuff.
Now if you're running over 1000W you're going to have to be sneaky with that heat. If you're pumping hot air out of this structure, that air is going to show up as a big colorful cloud of heat on an infrared camera. You'll want to find some way to cool the air before you pump it out. You may be able to use an air conditioner, though you would have to keep the unit off-site so that it doesn't add more heat to the big heat blob where you're growing.
I'm sure there's a clever way to manage the heat. Don't take any chances though.

There was a post on GC just last week by someone claiming to be an attorney and saying that FLIR detection without a warrant is essentially illegal search/entry. The logic of the courts that he was supposedly quoting is, in effect, that you are entitled to privacy behind the walls of your home so a technology that sees through those walls is the same as going in the door, so if LEO doesn't have a warrant to go through that person's door then by the same token they can't look through your walls without a warrant either. I don't know if this guy really is an attorney or really knows what he is talking about, but he was quoting law cases and sure sounded like he knew his stuff. Anyway, just more FYI...
This is the case with your actual house, but this law protecting your home does not include out buildings like sheds, garages that are not connected to your house, and barns. They can look at those with FLIR without a warrant and use that evidence against you.
