Can I use an indoor camera and point through a window?

Unfortunately using a camera through a window will mean that the infrared LEDs will reflect off of it at night, you will see this issue with any kind of IR night vision camera. A way around this is if you have an external light you can lock the camera to day mode (Log in to the Camera Interface and click on Setting, Camera, Night vision setup and set everything to off) and rely on the external light to provide sufficient illumination for the camera to record. Ideally to view and record events outside we would recommend you opt for one of our dedicated weatherproof outdoor cameras.
