A lot to unpack here…

For your Pan V3, I doubt someone is manipulating your cam unless they are walking up to it and physically doing it. They would need your account email username and password as well as be able to authenticate the Two Factor Authentication. You do have Two Factor Authentication turned on right?
I have Pan V3 Cam’s that I essentially use as stationary security cams as well. Here are the settings I recommend:
In the Live Stream toolbar. Privacy Mode Off, Track Motion Off, Pan Scan Off.
Detection Settings: Sensitivity 75, Detection Zone Off, Motion Tagging On.
Event Recording Settings: Record Motion Events On, All Motion Events selected. If the cam is subscribed to Cam+, you can also select “Person” under Smart Detections.
Notification Settings: Notification On, All Other Motion selected (and Person if subscribed to Cam+)
Advanced Settings: Make sure the cam has an SD Card in it. Turn the Record to SD setting On. Select Continuous. This way, regardless of what is uploaded to the Events page, you always have a 24\7 video for as long as the card capacity will hold. I get 21-28 days on a 256GB.
In the App Home Device list, in the lower left, beside Home, click Events. Then click the funnel icon in the top right. Click Clear All, then click Show Results. Click one of the day numbers at the top for the last 14 days to see if there is anything in the list.
In the App Home Device List, make sure the bell symbol in the top right doesn’t have a line thru it or a clock on it.
In the Account tab, make sure there are no Rules that would affect the Event Recording or On\Off status of the cam.
Test the cams by moving around in front of the cam and monitor if you receive a notification. If you do, click on it. What does it show you? If you go to the Events tab, are there Event Uploads listed?
