I believe it will stick. If not, what are you out - $25?

Difference is that home tint is usually available in greater widths. Other than that, none that I know of. They are both made by the same companies (3M is the big one...). I have no idea what dual-pane compatibility is...sounds like marketing hype to me. Tint is simply a thin sheet of tinted plastic that is sticky on one side. That's it - no big secrets...spray soapy water on window, peel backing off tint, stick tint to window, squeegee out most of water, line up tint and cut off excess, squeegee out remaining soapy water, let alone for three days so residual water can evaporate and tint can really stick.
