Multiple Xbox One Consoles

Is there anything special that is required to have two or more xbox one consoles in one house (i.e. multiple copies of games, multiple xbox live accounts, etc)?

You can set one console as your "home" console. Let's say that you buy a downloadable game on your home console. Anyone can sign into their own gamertag on that console and play the game.

On the second console, you could download the game you bought without having to pay again, but because it's not your "home" console, you would need to be signed into Live with the gamertag that purchased it in order to play it.

Obviously, if you buy a game on a disc and you want to be able to play it on both consoles at once, you would need 2 copies as the disc needs to be in the drive for authentication purposes. If you're not going to be in a situation where you're playing the same game on both consoles at the same time, you'll be fine, as you can install the game on both consoles and then just put the disc into whichever console you're using at the time.

Other than that, I can't think of anything else you need to consider. Your game saves sync to the cloud automatically, so as long as both consoles are connected to Live, you'll always have the latest version of your save for a game when you switch from one console to the other.
