Nest offer a variety off cameras such as the outdoor cam indoor cam and doorbell camera so suggesting an alternative always differs. With the Security market always changing and new products being brought to market very often the recommendations are endless. However alternatives to the outdoor camera we would recommend getting a hardwired system as it is more reliable and can be cost effective in the long run. For the doorbell nest is by far the best from what we have installed and tested but customers on a budget can look into Ring or Ezviz which are great doorbells for their price range and get the job done

Any professional specified system will be better than nest. Nest is an IoT device manufactured for the mass market consumers who want to fit their own solution, nothing wrong with that if your tech savvy but as a smart home company we fully understand the importance of a robust, secure and properly configured network. Nest cameras along with other IoT devices are totally dependent on the network and the cloud. Most consumers have an ISP provided router that simply isn’t up to the job. A properly installed CCTV system will be hard wired to the network and few installers would recommend wireless cameras. In short the best alternative to a nest cctv camera is a wired one!

CCTV is changing so very fast, as a rule we do not recommend any diy system available. That said you need to be aware of how the cameras work and what you want the system for. Any camera using cloud storage will be charging for this privilege the costs will vary and if only motion activated recording is in place you may miss the opportunity of getting a good image. Note: that in events of burglary, NVR/DVR may be stolen and the culprits may have there faces covered, so any NVR/DVR should be out of site and secure. It is likely that the burglars if they had there faces covered did a site visit a a few weeks earlier and probably weren't wearing any disguise at that time.

These days there are so many alternatives. We would always recommend to get a cctv system installed rather than stand alone camera like nest or Ring.com. However when you have a tight budget, we find Ring.com camera’s are a good alternative.

If you already have any Smart Home products, the best camera would be one from the same brand that will be able to integrate with your existing products. If you don't, to be fair, they are all as good/poor as each other. They are OK for a general overview, seeing if someone is on your property etc. As a security or evidence gathering tool, which is the main task of any CCTV system, they fail miserably in all but a few very narrow areas. Low quality recordings, poor night vision and short infrared lighting range means they are a false economy for anyone relying on the recorded foorage to protect their property or premises.
