False alarms with motion sensors

Anyone had repeated false alarms with motion sensors in the last 24 hours? I had my alarm go off triggered by 2 sensors detecting motion in a short space of time. I didn’t think much of it until the same happened again today. I changed the alarm settings to needing three sensors to be tripped for the alarm to trigger. I looked at the history and the same 2 motion detectors keep on detecting motion. Unless we have a ghost that just started haunting us in the last day or so, I’d say there’s something funky going on with my system. I know that heating can trigger motion sensors and points at windows etc. but these two motion sensors have been in place for over a year without issues. We have no pets either. Any thoughts?

Mine motion sensors were dropping off constantly but no false alarms. This is for gen 1 and a Bosch sensor. Don't know if it is connected but my hub lost connection for a minute last night with no loss of power or internet. Hope I am not about to lose all stability again.

We had this happen multiple times on Sunday 3/11.  A while after it started, I got a low battery email for the same motion sensor, replaced the battery, and now it's been fine.

I checked the battery level and interestingly one of them is now offline (presumably because the battery has gone dead and the other one is 11%. So it appears they were freaking out when getting a low battery. I don't recall getting an alert that they had a low battery level.  But it's odd as this has never happened before that I suddenly get false motion detected when the battery is low.
