The deal is over, but FYI, all cameras work fairly well during the day, with maybe some slight glare from the window (depends where sun is shining) but at night, if a light is turned on in the room, there will be lots of glare from the window because the interior light is reflected back. One way around this is to put something behind the camera, such as cardboard, so interior light isn't reflected back.

The biggest advantage of doing this is because you can use any camera, not just outdoor-rated ones, and you don't have to run cables to the outside. Also, if it's in a corner of your window, it won't be as obvious compared to an outdoor camera (although sometimes you want it to be obvious).
