Projector operates from inside your home and displays on window screen
Fits almost any shape and size window
For best results, project from a completely dark room onto the white screen and turn off outdoor lighting above and near the window.
The focus adjuster is located on the front lens of the projector. You may turn it left or right to obtain a clear image.
The arrows on the rear of the projector are for the size of your windows. Pushing to the right will produce a vertical image. Pushing to the left will produce a horizontal image.
The image is best viewed from the outside.
The display screen can be located at the bottom of the box, under the Styrofoam tray holding the projector.

Here’s a Fun Fact for You
“Walking in a Winter Wonderland” was first written in 1934 and has been covered by over 200 different artists. In 1997, a small business selling windowpanes in Lexington, Kentucky released a lesser-known single with a similar name, “Walking in a Window Wonderland.” As of now, no artists have covered it.
@tinamarie1974 Yay! First-hand knowledge. Do you leave yours outside projecting onto your house, or have it inside projecting on a sheet over the window? I’m wondering if these can handle being outside like the cheaply made (but not cheap cost) ones they sell at Lowes/HomeDepot.
@tinamarie1974 I’ve seen a lot of posts that mention you need to have enough space between the screen and projector, but none that actually clarify how much distance that is. How far away are you running it from the screen, and what’s the shortest practical distance you think might work?
I have a bow window I’d like to use it on, but the projector would sit no more than 3 feet away from the window itself, and I’m thinking that might be pushing it.
@jnanas Watch the video review linked below, it’s a surprisingly long distance just to fill a 54" wide window, and a longer distance also makes the image dimmer. The review also brings to light a few other glaring shortcomings. It’s really poorly designed, IMO.
@Serafyna@tinamarie1974 You have to shine it from behind. If you were to project directly onto a surface, then everything would be reversed. Any snot-nosed kid dressed as Iron Man would surely notice that the skeletons’ left femur is where their right femur should be, and vice-versa, ruining the realism. Of course, you could bounce your projection off a mirror which would also help give you more throw distance in a shorter space. Be sure not to use a front-surface mirror though so you can get a spooky ‘ghosting’ effect.
@stolicat@vlpronj true. I bought a cheap projector from meh. I am going to see if I can also use it to project YouTube videos on a different window, but getting it to fit the window size perfectly will be tricky
I only have one front window, and Amazon sells one for a penny less. But reviews say quality control is poor, and I might need another as a backup. But quality control is so bad that if I chose this deal, I might have two of them perpetually collecting dust in a box somewhere instead of only one…
@djslack Well “technically” there’s 36 videos (18 per projector), but really only 18 unique videos. That’s the kind of marketing language I’ve come to expect from the “As Seen on TV” family of useless products.
@jml326 Make sure it’s almost completely dark on both sides of the window or no one will see it. Also make sure you have plenty of distance between the window and where you can set up the projector or the image will be too small. Watch this video review to see just how far back from the window you might have to go:
I bought one of these 2 years ago for my apartment. It was so dim and blurry that it was practically useless. I was just trying to cover a standard size bedroom window. Such a great potential idea, with poor implementation.
I do window projection on my main bay windows with a nice HD projector setup, but I bit the bullet on these to see if they would fill some small upper windows for a cheap price and I was actually pleasantly surprised. It’s not super bright but still very visible from outside at night and you can adjust the focus to make it clear at whatever distance you need. For me it was just going in a guest bedroom that stays unused so it’s always dark and there aren’t any limitations on placement. I’m glad I picked them up.
FYI, I had two bad ones. One just lit up a white screen. The second one would only run for about 10 sec at a time before cutting out. I swapped the main board of the mostly working one into the other, and now I have one working one, and one doubly broken. (Just be careful though, the QC on the connectors is pretty crappy and some were reversed from each other. )
It seems there’s a temperature sensor on the LED heatsink that was probably acting up
… Also, for those that didn’t notice, there’s a cheap screen of sorts under the styrofoam and some double sided tape. If you have a Bluetooth battery/ speaker with an aux in (‘If’ haaah! Of course you have one) it’ll also play some tacky and creepy sound effects (the Xmas ones are creepy)
