I saw that this would work through fogged glass but I wanted to utilize a mirror tint over plexiglass. I have wondered if this would work. As the surface is opaque while light is on the outside yet when lit up from the inside it would then be viewable… So I was wondering what affect the mirror tint would have on the sensors in the Octolively?
It would likely work somewhat, but it will definitely have a large loss in sensitivity. The sensors send infrared light up, and look for reflections back. If it’s dark enough to look mirror-like to your eyes, it’s likely passing less than 1% of the light through, and there are two passes through it. Obviously, you’d have to try the specific material to see how well, if at all, it would work.
