The camera lens itself sits behind glass. It wont be a problem to use an Outdoor camera behind a window.

Thank you for the quick reply. Since I will be ordering the Outdoor camera's to be used indoors, I just want to make absolutely sure that I will be successfully mounting them on a double pane window to record outdoor activity with the IR on. Will that work? Or will motion not be detected by the shear nature of IR and it's heat detection. Will it capture and record motion outside the window? Will the IR "lights" cause a reflection issue?
Thank you again.

I think that there is a high probability that the IR from the camera would be reflected off of the glass. This is not unique to Logitech's cameras either. You could use an outdoor camera and never enable the nightvision, but why pay the extra cost? If you get an outdoor camera I would recommend placing it outside of the window to eliminate the potential of IR reflection.

Speaking from my own experience, the windows do reflect back and mounting outdoors is the best option. The IR is pretty powerful and will reflect off of a lot of surfaces back into the lens. Mounted outdoors it works great, like and invisible floodlight.
