How many security cameras you need to protect your home generally depends on your home’s size and layout. You’ll need to consider things like how many areas you want to monitor, security camera viewing angles and indoor vs. outdoor security cameras to determine how many security cameras you’ll need.
You’ll also find that surveillance systems offer either single or multiple channels. Each channel represents a single security camera, so the number of channels you need in a system directly corresponds with the number of security cameras you plan on using. If you only plan on monitoring a single area, one security camera and a single channel should be sufficient. However, if you would like to monitor several areas at the same time, you’ll need a multi-channel system.
