ADM can send a signal to your phone and it will ring for up to five minutes or to when the power button is pressed.

If GPS is enabled on your phone the ADM webpage will show you where the phone is located.

If you have it pre enabled you can have ADM request your phone perform a Factory Data Reset. To pre-enable the Droid Maxx go to Settings | Security & Screen Lock | Device Administration and make sure Android Device Manager is checked.
Just a quick note that there was an update to play services during this first week of November 2013. The update to Play Services disabled "Android device manager" from Device Administrators, even if you had already manually set it. If you are depending on this service, please go into Settings->Security & Screen Lock -> Device administration and make sure that Android Device Manager is checked.
