One simple solution is to mount an L-bracket on the wall adjacent to the window and attach the base of the camera to the L-bracket. That should put the camera's field of view facing squarely out the window.

The IR illuminator reflecting off the window is an issue many users experience. You can try using a non-reflective coating on the window (i.e. a matte finished glass sticker), although I haven't tried this myself. Other users purchased external IR illuminators and placed them at another vantage point or even outside.

I discovered this problem last night. The IR lights get a glare from the window and the video is no good. I intend to experiment over the next few nights by turning off and see what kind of picture I get, and also might try anti-glare tape. Once you turn off IR then you have to select day or night mode. I suspect that night mode will have to be used and that will mean my day videos will have no color. But, night is more critical.
