@markski @Bethel1  The 1st Gen is garbage too. It doesn't record movement in your diameter between 6pm-6:40am. No wonder ADT is giving this piece of trash away free. I recommend the Ring doorbell, at least it picks up motion in your set diameters & some. @Bethel1 I have the same problem & now ADT are saying the doorbell isn't part of there security system just the items that are connected to the fire & police department so they aren’t letting cancel without payingfir the system. Doorbell hasn't worked since day 1 & they replaced it & it's still doing the same thing.
