Can I point a camera looking out of a window?

We don't recommend this.

If you are just using to view Live during daylight hours then yes you 'could'. However if you want to use for motion detection recording then 'No' since the PIR sensor will not trigger when used against a window and infrared night vision will not work either (as the IR LEDs will simply bounce back from the window glass back into the camera lens).

For outdoor coverage just use our ProXT cameras, which can easily be installed externally (since there is no cable or drilling involved) and are weatherproof.
