Cameras: Start / DVR

Start / DVR

How many cameras will you need? 

Walk around your home to determine the number of cameras you will need.  Pay attention to the key areas you want to cover such as doors, windows, driveways, garages, etc.  Also keep in mind potential areas where you can install a camera on your home.  I was able to cover the exterior of my home with four cameras.  Some of my friends wanted overlap coverage with different angles and therefore we installed 7-8 cameras.

  1. 4 or less cameras
  2. 5-8 cameras
  3. Greater than 8 cameras
