This is more to do with the software you are using vs. the camera itself. Have you tried other software. Try Sighthound free for 14 days and see if that resolvrs it.

Using IR on the camera looking outside is useless. The IR reflects against the glass, and even if it did not, that is quite a distance to cover.
