Consider the number of Channels required on the DVR unit (now and in the future) to view/ record and all the camera views (1, 2, 4, 8 etc) Also consider any potential requirements for Remote viewing access on a suitable smart phone or tablet (Example: You may choose to purchase an 8 Channel DVR Unit to support 4 Cameras today and have spare capacity for 4 more cameras later)</p>
