Can I place my camera in a window, to monitor my car or driveway?

The cameras will not work when placed behind a pane of glass, this is due to the IR LEDs used for the cameras night vision. These will reflect off the glass back into the lens of the camera giving a blue blur rather than a useful image.

In daylight the camera can be used to monitor live footage through a window however the motion detection system will not work as the PIR seonsor will not detect heat through a pane of glass so is not something we would recommend. If monitoring an outside location is something you are looking to achieve you may be better served by a waterproof camera like the UCAM247HDO or UCAM247DUO cameras.
