Does Arlo Ultra detect motion and record through glass/windows

Will the new Arlo Ultra be able to record motion and activity through windows? The previous versions cannot.

Re: Does Arlo Ultra detect motion and record through glass/windows

Arlo Ultra uses PIR (Passive InfraRed) technology when unplugged. Like Arlo Pro and Pro 2 cameras, it will not detect motion through glass when unplugged.

 

When AC powered, the Ultra will utilize pixel-based motion detection.

If the Ultra Camera uses PIR , how does the camera track/auto zoom  in the demo video when there are windows in between the camera and the person
