The picture is pretty dark, but it looks like a leaf-footed plant bug. The may congregate in cool/warm areas, and are somehow finding their way into the windows. There must be an opening near those windows so check that out and caulk up any cracks.

This insect only feeds on plants and plant seeds; it will not harm you. You could vacuum them up, or collect them and throw them outside.
