I purchased multiple Circle 2 cameras in August, both wired and wire-free. After a disastrous firmware upgrade to v.5.6, the wire-free cameras were basically bricked. Long story short, it took a lot of back and forth with customer service to get the cameras downgraded back to v.5.2. However, since the downgrade, the motion sensor for one of my wire-free cameras (the one monitoring our back door) keeps triggering. It goes off multiple times an hour, resulting in the rapid draining of the battery. This most recent time, I charged the battery on Sunday afternoon, and by tonight (Tuesday), the battery charge is down to under 40%. Reviewing the recorded segments, I don't see anything moving, and this very same wire free Circle 2 didn't do this before. I note that all the triggers are gray circles (low motion), not blue. I also have a second wire-free Circle 2 monitoring my front door. I charged it on Saturday, and in those three it's down only 5%, which suggests that it's on track to last at least a month and a half before it needs to be charged again. It has been working fine. I tried turning the sensitivity of the motion sensor down to its lowest setting, but the motion sensor still keeps being triggered by nothing. In its current state, this particular camera is almost useless. Inconveniently, it would have to be the camera that I mounted under the eave of our roof. It's about 8-9 feet off of the ground, which means that I have to get on a ladder every time it needs charging. This was no big deal when it needed charging once every 6 weeks or so, but now it's intolerable. I can't be charging this camera every three days or so. That just won't work. That doesn't even count the Internet bandwidth it wastes recording...nothing. How can this problem be fixed?
