How to hide from IR

    I've been thinking of ways to hide from IR in the sky. I was wondering has anybody ever done any experiments or know of anything that will block your rays from the helicopters. Ive heard from some people that they use that foam in a can stuff and make a whole plenum space of that stuff above there grow room. Is that true does it work? Any ideas?

    Do you think people are concerned with IR when they are using high intensity lights for their fishtanks? I've been using high powered lights for years and no body has ever knocked on the door, and you can even see the light radiating out of my windows.

    if you are sketched out they do sell this insulation stuff that looks kinda like mylar that you line the ceiling with and it like evenly distributes the heat to make it look like the whole room is hot, not just the bulb. you should know though that it was declared invasion of privacy to use IR to bust people.

    Yeah the supreme court declared it unconstitutional to use the IR system to catch people so no more worries.

    you aint big enough. you gotta get your weight up in order to be fucking with the IR.

    if you aint a big fish, they arent trying to fry you, simple as that.

    polyshield works nice, air cooling the light to reduce temps helps as well

    you can insulate your space, but its not really worth it imo.

    like Loudblunts said, until you get really big, nobody cares... and by the time you are really big, hopefully you are smart enough to get a whole house setup and the heat is masked by the normal day/night cycle and the fact that its a residence and is supposed to be emitting heat.

    its when garages and sheds are glowing in the IR that LEO get crazy.

    Hey Aintgot....
    There is a great video on youtube (not promoting other sites) that discusses the legality (its unlawful to use) of IR. Also It discusses how to hide the heat. Basically the only way is to do it in your basement and have an exhaust fan going out mimiking a chimney, or dryer port. But like the above members said, don't worry. PS your pic is great!

    infra is the most ridiculous exucse for getting caught. the cops man hours, equiment cost is more than they want for some measly 2 plant closet grow. stop freaking out from what you hear on the news . You get caught becuase your friends turn enemy or you make a simple mistake and someone snitches you out. its becuase of people that people get caught. not technology. Moral of the story is. noone knows. and i mean knoone not even your own brother (which was hard not to show my own brother considering he smokes more than i do ) word of mouth travels real fast . trust .

    new ir technology makes aerial imaging like an xray .. not only do they pick up light/heat/ir rays them-selves . they can also use imaging to create computer generated images using all the for mentioned data to produce very detailed pictures . and as far as constitutional .... the gov. does what it wants when it wants ... " force shites on reasons back " -BF-

    Your cabinet produces no more IR than a hot kitchen or bathroom or boiler. Relax.
