I´m planing to go with Argus 2 to surveilance my house as well as my carports. The cams or for both, indoor and outdoor on my property. For this instance I need a larger ammount of cams. I think 10 - 12 Argus 2 should be enough for the purpose. Question is, how many cams can I connect via Wlan. Are there any restrictions? Does the app support for example lets say 10 cams? I´ve read that the split-screen in the only shows four windows. Any advice really appreciated. Has anyone else done this before? By the way, apologise my bad english. I am not a native speaker.

I would "start small" before investing massive amounts in battery-powered cameras (from any vendor). I fear you are in for disappointment in terms of replacing batteries more frequently than desired, not "catching" motion when it starts, detecting "motion" that is not people, animals or cars, coverage area, and WiFi connection issues. Put in two and see "how it works" before buying 10 more.
I have two of the original Argus cameras. I now power them using USB adapters. My "go to" cameras are the new 5MP Power over Ethernet (PoE) cameras. They are a chore to install, but the picture is amazing compared to the Argus.

The Reolink app doesn't have the camera quantity limitation. You can add cameras to Reolink App as many as you want.
There are 4-grids (live view 4 cameras at the same time) view, 9-grids, 16-grids view (it will show up only when there are more than 16 devices on your App), etc.
The maximum resolution of the battery-powered cameras is 1080p, so the wifi cameras and PoE cameras will have better image quality. And the battery-powered cameras use PIR detection, therefore the detection distance is limited.

Reolink Argus 2 Review: Budget Security Camera Gets the Job Done ... The camera's companion app also tends to temporarily close out key interactive ... The battery may be recharged while it's attached to the camera or separate ... and Mac computers, which can monitor and manage up to eight cameras.
