Prying Eyes In The Sky's ?????

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by weneedweed, Jul 15, 2004.

  1. WE COME IN PEACE.
    WE KNOW SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO START GROWING IN HIS ATTIC/LOFT.
    HOWEVER THEY ARE CONCERNED THAT THE HEAT MAY BE DEDECTED BY SENSORS ON HELICOPTERS.
    IS THIS POSSIBLE ? AND IF SO, HOW CAN HE SORT THE PROBLEM OUT?
    YOUR ADVICE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
     
  2. 1) Turn of caps lock.

    2) No...the heat *probably* won't be detected.
     
  3. thanks for that, i'm still a bit paranoid though.I've heard from a few freinds that the heat can be detected, by passing police heli copters
     
  4. the heat can be detected using the heat sensors a VERY good friend of mine lets me know when the copper chopper will be checking for exessive heat in attics (i live in wales )it is usually a thursday night here i use the plaster board with the foil on the back to decrease heat build up in the attic foil side down plus it helps deflect the light but it all depends on what your roof is made of slate is good but certain roofing tiles don't absorb the heat and the sensors wiull pick it up .....all depends on how many lights you got AND THE WATTAGE
     
  5. thanks for that mate we are using a 400 watt hps, so we'll do the thing with the foil and plaster board.
     
  6. i have a 400 watt hps and a 600 but even if they do detect your heat it's not enough to get a warrent but it is enough to get them wondering
     
  7. thanks again for your response.
     
  8. no problem anything to help a fellow grower
     
  9. well over here where i live dirty birds are flying round all the time... they haven't busted anybody here yet so i think u guys is safe as long as u take some precautions and don't get too careless... happy smokin

    peace...
     
  10. Growing weed is not a signifigant source of heat.
     
  11. It is when you have a 400w HPS system on 24/7.
     
  12. This is just what I've heard, but even if the police see your closet or attic blazing red on their heat sensors, they by law cannot do anything on that "evidence" alone. There must be some other cause for them to bust you, but then again, after the Patriot act, who knows what they can do now.

  13. I love Canada, while they still consider all forms of illicit drug transactions a form of terrorism, as apparently 60 percent of all narcotics are imported from rogue nations, they still can't stop on our rights without warrent notice and propper evidence.
     
  14. i dont see how you could grow up in your attic my attic is always unbelievably hot during the summer i mean unless its the middle of winter where you live
     
  15. we live in the u.k and don't have the pleasure of mich sunshine.
     
  16. there's never enough sun in the uk
     
  17. ^^^

    well that sux
     
  18. This sounds like a little paranoia to me.
    Lets get real here, do you really think that Police Helicopters are going to take the time flying around residential areas with heat sensors looking for private marijuana growers? That would be a little counter productive considering the cost of running a helicopter, pilot, specialist or whatever. Unless you are commercial and live in a known area for cultivation, I wouldnt even worry about it. All this heat/electrical stuff has people too worked up over things. Lets put things into perspective here. Did you know the average PC takes up 400 watts? In most households thats on 24/7. SO bills, i wouldnt worry about the police linking your bills to growing. And the amount of heat that a 400 watt growlight puts out, is probably a little blip on any heat screen. For all they know it could be the household heating unit, how the hell do they know what you have in there. I'm not saying its not wise to think about these things, but nothing to lose sleep over IMO. BUt whatever you do good luck
