Gila Mirror Privacy Control Window Film reflects light for daytime privacy and relief from bright sunshine.

  • Level of privacy: This film creates privacy during the day when the sun is out after dark, when rooms are lit from inside, it no longer conceals views
  • UV protection: UV protection reduces fading on flooring, furniture, portraits, blinds and draperies
  • Application type: Adhesive application; instructions included
  • Can be cut to fit any window, typically applied to the interior window surface
  • For best results use the Gila complete window film application kit

Answer: 
You can see in when inside is brighter. The film has a reflection on whatever a side light is brighter. At night, need a privacy, not another big mirror inside a room when a light is on. It totally wastes money and time.

Answer: 
Yes, especially during the day when it is brighter outside. At night, or if you turn on a bright light inside the space one can see inside. Under normal conditions this only occurs at night when you turn a light on in the space. During the day it is almost always one way viewing (inside can see out, outside cannot see in).

Answer: 
Yes... to the daylight privacy film. It works on the principle of the dark side (indoors) being shielded by the mirror effect on the light side (the outdoors light).
At night, the light is stronger indoors (usually), so people can see in without a problem, and the mirror effect is on the inside... so it reflects the light from inside back into the room.

I wanted this for my garage so no one can see in. If it is nighttime and there are no lights on in the garage, can a person shining a flashlight in from the outside see anything inside?

Answer: 
No, but he burglar can see your flashlight, the one that is mounted to your 45 caliber pistol, which is being aimed at them. It is common at which point for them to no longer be trying to rob you.

Answer: 
The flashlight would make the film more reflective, if they press their face against the glass and shield any outside light with their hands, they will be able to see inside like you can with tint on a car window. If you are looking for more privacy than this, you might prefer the frosted version.

According to the claim on the box itself... it indicates it can reduce the heat of the sun by 79%. . .
that's a bold claim.
I am not interested in that capability; I want it to reflect the light for a photo technique.
I hope that helps. . .

I'm looking to buy this film for energy efficiency as well as blocking UV rays. I read about it reducing heat which is nice in the summer but in the winter would it then work to shield cold air from coming in? Living in apartment in NYC so not like a large house. Thanks!

You'll just have to determine if the year-round privacy aspect of the film is more important to you than the seasonal cooling and heating aspect.
I hope this answer helped.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 102 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spend 20 minutes to read instructions/watch demo I have a 3 clear glass inserts in my balcony railing and wanted to darken them up for some privacy. I bought the mirrored film and briefly glanced at the instructions before attempting to install - big mistake. I found the installation process cumbersome and my results were awful (lots of creases, bubbles, etc.). Going back to the drawing board, I decided to go to the Gila website and watch the demo videos which were a big help. Key tips: clean the window thoroughly, be generous with the application spray, cut the film at least an extra inch wider than needed on all sides (to be trimmed later), follow their squeegee technique, and put the video on your phone/tablet as you install. Although the film-peeling process was still a bit finicky (would help with two people), my results were 10 times better (bubbles and creases virtually gone), and you can barely see through the balcony from the street. Very nice result! April 21, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not what I was looking for I was hoping to have a solution for my large windows for some privacy during the day and the night. This film is completely useless as night when the lights are on. you can see everthing inside the home plus it also has a mirror effect on the inside. I will have to replace mine with a better frost film or something of that sort May 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Some notes regarding the night mirror effect, applicability... Regarding the night time privacy, here are the things you should consider: * Do you have outdoor lighting near the window where the film is being applied that comes on at night? If so, this will lessen the mirror effect and the visibility from outside in at night. * Do you have shades or drapes you can close at night? I think this product is most useful for those who already have shading or drapes on their windows for night time and don't really need to look out the window at night (for example, home office). Also, other tip, make sure there are no signs of damage on the box and no marks or crinks on the film before you unroll. If there are, go return it and get a new one, don't start with film that is already marked... April 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible product - I bought two rolls and both were a horrible mistake. The product is rolled in the wrong direction causing it to not want to stay in place. With two people, you will still have a bad application experience. Home Depot will not take the rerun, don't waste your time on this product. May 7, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Blocks your view at night During the day it does give you privacy. At night your the one out of luck. Installed the tints on my family room windows and at night I can't see out the windows. All I see is a mirror. So I can have some perp looking in at night and I wouldn't know. Wish I was able to look out at night. Now I have to remove them and look for some other brand. March 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product We bought this product in early November and it works great! After we cleaned the windows thoroughly we cut the film to fit while leaving a little for trimming. I found that by taking my time, using plenty of soapy water in a spray bottle and working the air bubbles out, the film did stick quite well. There is one little spot where it will not stick but thats okay. Looking in from the outside, all you see is a mirror effect. After dark...it's a different story. You cannot see every detail but you can see in. I thought it went well, it didn't take very long either. I highly recommend this product if you want daytime privacy and the visibility cleared up in a few days. Take your time, Have the help of a friend and preparation are the key recommendations and yes, it becomes a mirror from the inside after dark. December 24, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for Garage Doors This mirrored window film is just what we needed for our garage doors. We wanted to still allow light in, but deter theft by making so you can't peer through the windows. On the first window we did, we struggled to get the backing off the film, but stumbled upon the instructions as we rolled more film out, and saw the tip about using tape. The project went quickly w/one person measuring and cutting, and another applying. We're very happy with this product, even though we understand that it loses it's mirror properties from outside when lights are on inside. We rarely have lights on in the garage at night,so it should be fine. December 27, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent daytime privacy The film is relatively easy to install, the one caveat is to make sure the glass is perfectly clean, especially the edges, otherwise the edges of the film will not stick and will curl up, leaving a gap. The film has a sticky side that is protected with a thin sheet of clear plastic. Getting the protective sheet off is a challenge, until you discover the "tape trick". Use two small pieces of masking tape. Stick one on each side of the sheet and simply pull them apart. The protective sheet easily separates from the reflective sheet. Handling the film with the protective sheet removed takes some practice so you don't get it stuck to itself. For larger panes just start the separation on one edge, stick it to the clean, wet window, pulling the protective sheet away as you smooth out the reflective sheet. During the day the window is fully reflective from the outside, so prying eyes are unable to see in. At night, as long as there are no lights on inside, the window is still reflective from the outside. Once a light is turned on though the window becomes somewhat transparent and one can see through to the inside. This film is a very inexpensive way to enhance security without having to replace the windows. August 11, 2015
