Yes, it can be pointed out a window for a driveway. I'm not sure of the distance, but we use one of ours out the window and there is a zoom option. You will get constant notices for any motion detection. Any time someone drives or walks by, or any animal walks or flies by, you will get a notice. So, you will need to decide the purpose. If it is merely to record the front driveway when motion is detected or it is a high traffic area, you probably will want to turn off notices or they will drive you crazy.
