Not sure if this counts as a tip or not. Although I think so, I have some of the v2 cameras and have recently gotten the v3 cameras and I love the new cameras. My tip would be to upgrade to the new cameras if you can. I have noticed a huge difference in reliability and function. Have 1 of the spot light ad on and it does a good job.
I just wish I could ask Alexa to turn that spot light on. Loving the new cameras.
