I am trying to find the best solution for adding a film or any other product on windows to have privacy.

I know that I can put films but what I want complete transparency from inside which blocks any view from outside. Because I do not want to block the light to my house. But let's say if I have no certain no one can see inside but I get all the lights and I can see outside.

Any suggestion?

Thank you for your inquiry. There are some companies that specialize in commercial and residential window tinting/films that provide various functions such as cutting down heat gain from the sun. They would be better informed than myself. I do know that reflective coatings work as long as one side is considerably brighter than the other. On a sunny day the office high rises all look like mirrors here in Calgary. Unfortunately at night it is the other way around and i can easily see right into an office that has the lights left on.

Your best would be highly reflective glass. Kind off like you would see in Police stations.
