Zmodo’s smart security light misses the mark

Maximus Smart Home Security Outdoor Light & Camera - Craftsman Black - Works with Amazon Alexa


Smart Security Light - Maximus Lighting

The floodlight can be dimmed via the Kuna app, and the entire assembly is water- and humidity-resistant. Designed to be hardwired to your electrical system, most people will use it to replace an existing porch light. Finally, as its name suggests, the Maximus Smart Motion Security Light comes with a motion sensor that can detect movement up to 70 feet away.

Through the use of the Kuna app, which you can read about in , you’ll not only be able to view the Smart Motion Security Light’s video feed, but also hear and speak with individuals standing close to the fixture. And, if needs be, the same speaker that lets you blather on with the people standing on your front porch can also sound an alarm siren to dissuade unsavory types from messing with your home, or to alert your neighborhood to a problem at your house.

Coach Smart Security Light - Best Buy

For the Maximus Smart Security Light there are two design elements we looked at, mostly focusing on ease of use: mobile app and hardware design.

Controllable via digital assistant or via the Kuna app available for and devices, Maximus’ Smart Motion Security Light builds on the success of the company’s line. The somewhat insectile outdoor fixture is equipped with an integrated 1080p video camera that can broadcast live footage directly to your smartphone. And its powerful 2400-lumen floodlight is unlikely to leave any shadows for miscreants to hide in (that’s more than twice as bright as the we reviewed in November 2016).
