The Good: The Maximus Camera Floodlight comes with free two-hour cloud storage, optional person alerts and detection zones (with a monthly subscription plan) and delivered prompt motion alerts to my phone. The Bad: This camera responds to Alexa and Google Assistant voice commands, but only adjusts the built-in floodlights -- it won't show a live video feed on a screen-outfitted Amazon or Google smart display. I got some "phantom" motion alerts when bugs flew by and when shadows shifted around throughout the day. The Bottom Line: I wish this camera-floodlight had more robust Alexa and Google Assistant integrations, but it's a decent choice if you want to easily link your outdoor lighting to a live streaming HD security camera. I like the $249 (roughly \u00a3195 and AU$330) Maximus Camera Floodlight, but two main things hurt its appeal. I occasionally got phantom alerts telling me there was motion activity when the lighting shifted -- or a bug flew by. Fortunately, you can adjust the motion sensor's sensitivity, which helped some (but not completely).I wish the hardware looked better. (The Kuna, now called the Maximus Light Fixture, I reviewed back in 2016 is so cute, so I expected more from this product.) You can't do much about the uninspired design, though, except choose between a black or a white finish.Otherwise, it's a good security camera-floodlight hybrid worth looking at if you want to replace an existing wired outdoor floodlight with a smart, Wi-Fi-connected one.The Maximus camera's main competition is the Ring Floodlight Cam. See how they compare in the chart below:These two cameras are very similar in terms of basic specs, as you can see, but a couple of things stand out when you look closer. While both Maximus and Ring offer optional cloud storage subscription plans for a monthly (or yearly) fee, Maximus is the only one that also offers a free alternative. It isn't much, but Maximus provides two hours of free motion-activated video clips storage so that you can review a saved recording for up to two hours after it happens. This is helpful if you miss a motion alert live and want to see what happened later on. If you want more than two hours of saved clips, you'll have to pay, though, starting at $7.49 per month or $59.88 per year. Read more about the Maximus cloud subscription plans here. You won't get that two-hour grace period from Ring, but its starter subscription plan is more affordable, starting at $3 per month or $30 per year. In addition, Maximus offers car and person alerts with its paid subscription plan, which Ring doesn't support. That means you'll get a specific alert that says "Garage: Vehicle detected" or "Garage: Person detected" when that optional feature is enabled through a paid Maximus cloud subscription.
