The police claimed that using IR cameras to look for grow-ops didn't need a warrant since the IR photons were leaking out into a public place.
I imagine they would claim that in this case that it is the equivalent of looking through your window from a public place. The same excuse celebrity photographers use.
The real issue is whether this allows "no-knock" SWAT raids to become even more no-knock. Simply target the radar return and shoot through the wall.
