    They restricted the use of HEAT SENSORS but they did not restrict the police from using estimates of exceesive power usage by the power companies. That's how they "caught" Zane. The thermal imaging sensors would have probably shown that the source was a computer and not growing plants. BTW they also use both technologies for detecking stills built inside of homes.
