Cameras often don't pick up motion even with highest sensitivity and activity zone set. Tried reset.

I have a system in Monterey that works fairly well.

My system in Morgan Hill with 5 cameras is awful.

The cameras often don’t pick up motion even though I have the sensitivity at the highest and the activity zones set.

Several times a day the recordings I get are just vertical ribbons.

 

All cameras are 120v.

 

Yes, I’ve reset them many times but it doesn’t last long.

That would seem to imply signal strength and/or quality issues. You may need to reposition the cameras and/or hub to improve the signal. House construction (stucco is probably the worst), things on/in the walls, other wireless devices using the same frequency, etc. all get to play in the signal optimization.
