Good deal, but the camera does not have any night vision. The light that the lamp produces does not improve video quality at night either. Good quality video during the day, though.

The price varies by location, Two stores near me , one $129,. another $79..


I have two on each side. The video quality at night is quite acceptable.

My Maximus light died after 2 years. I will probably change it back to regular light. But $70 is probably worth it if you can find it. But monthly fee is more expensive than ring. And it is a lot of work to replace the entire unit when it dies.

Kuna/Maximus only has 2 hour cloud save by default unless you sign up for their premium service. IMO it's not too bad during the day but if something happens at night when you're asleep and wake up, you have the notifications, but of course you can't see what it was if a false alarm or a prowler or someone trying to break in, because the recording deleted.

I bought four from our local Costco store at 50 each in mid December. I was going to buy two and buy two of the dummy units without video but at $200 for 4 it made the most sense. Two for front door and two for garage...

Saw this today in Danville, CA for $69.99. Having this unit ourselves (and doing a thorough review on it), we have to say this is a pretty great deal.

wow great deal. this is perfect if you have a light fixture right by your door or by the garage. no night vision but the light itself is the light and if the person is close by it will capture them.

im guessing maybe a new version is coming out on why such a good deal.

My personal opinion is that you are better off with something that looks obviously like a camera to deter prospective burglars.

Might be a strong maybe if it had onvif support. Looked at the box and dug around online, nothing. It'll be a hard pass. My days of spending useless hours integrating someones brain fart of a smart idea to sell you into their proprietary ecosystem of special stand alone apps and useless junk are gone. Buy this and you're indebted to their servers, till they stop supporting it. Probably the reason the price has been creeping down here on SD posts.

What are you talking about? I caught our elderly neighbor peeked into our house at 3am wearing his underwear. I don't need 4k camera to see his thinga-ma-jigger.

No, but you need an ample light source. This doesn't provide that.
