I'm renovating a master bath and the entire wall between the bath and the master is completely removed. The view and light that this provides is very nice so I'm considering putting in glass instead of a solid (non-structural) wall that was there before.
The concern is privacy. It's a master bath so in theory, it's not really a necessity but I think that would be awkward in practice especially with a clear glass shower stall. Pattern glass or frosted/etched glass is another option but the SO and I are in complete disagreement on what would be appropriate.
The one option that would seem to allow us to have our cake and eat it too is using a switchable glass/film. There are various manufacturers but here's an example with some demo videos. There's actually a video on the site where they show putting the film on what appears to be a sliding door and a 'sliding door package' but I can't figure out what is getting power to the door. There's a mention of a 'power transfer cable' but no picture or detailed description.
I think this is pretty straightforward for something that is fixed but we were planning to have a sliding door. These products require a power source and it seems low voltage DC is not an option however the product above actually uses 60-70VAC power as pointed out by JPhi1618. I had assumed these were DC powered.
Is there a proper, legit way to connect wiring for something like this? It turns out all of these products run on AC as described in this thread.
