    i was wondering what the verdict on this product is as im going to be doing a grow room in a shed outside in my back yard not insulated and made out of a plastic like material seriously consdering using this

    Discount Hydroponics - Block-IR

    since its outside in a shed with no insulation i figured id stick out like a sore thumb i know that they are supposed to have a warrant to do an ir scan but figure if this work might aswell use it all comments are apprciated thanks

    well this still happens to be very close to me and i talked with the employees all hydro growers "tomatoes" say a company called cap came in and did the test to show them the company also sells a ir camera/imager for the low price of like 6 grand but i want to use this but dont want to spend 150 bucks if it doesnt work

    is it indoor or outdoor?

    cuz if it's indoor u could just put on a tin roof, be warned this will prolly significantly increase the heat in there

    Absolutely works! My mother uses this in her shed grow. She coverted my stepfathers workshed into a grow room and covered the walls in this. I got it for her at a local Hydro shop I frequent. Store guy had some info with before and after pics through a FLIR camera. Just showed black space. But they might look for "Black space" now. Who knows. But my moms been using it for abou 4 years and hasn't had any knocks.

    wow it actually works i don't like the idea though of just a "black space" on a map but it's better than a weed signature no doubt

    "They" don't care about a black signature. That just means NO HEAT!

    Block-IR is great stuff. I went to my local hydro shop www.discount-hydro.com and they had an IR gun around (actually, the same one in the picture that is in their catalog...) and unless there is some voodoo going on, it works just like the pictures...

    Unless you have an array of lights you don't need anything like this product. For your grow to be detected it needs to be obvious and that means a number of hot spots in a row with obvious hot ducting. One or two heat sources just looks like a water heater and furnace or anything else in your house that produces heat.

    Even in a shed this is a complete waste of money unless you have numerous lights. For all they know you work in your shed and keep a space heater in there. It's not enough to get any kind of warrant to go looking.

    I am currently using it on my light hoods and ducting for my 4 1000w lights. Not sure if it works but worth a couple hundred bucks for the additinal peace of mind..

    If your looking for reflective material to block a flir camera look up fi foil. They have all assorts of reflective material. I recommend the double bubble reflective bc its vapor and and moisture resistant. Also check out radiant barrier you can put in your attic to reduce your costs of utility bills and get rid of your heat signature.

    well here's a thought as well...

    They say to cover the ceiling of your grow room with the ir block but... when they are in a chopper scanning ir unless they are directly above your house it's useless.. .you can still see a heat sig from the air from the sides heat sigs leak out ... so to to be sure it works well for you you need to line your grow room completely which can be pricey...

    yea i said fuck it im in cali for one and 2 im a med patient so if they come i shouldnt be in trouble unless they are feds and 3 they cant use flir on my house without a warrrent
  20. Have this lining all my walls. Harsh penalties encouraged my conscience to purchase. I'm putting some serious faith in this product as well.
