Device NOT ID'd on Alarm Event

I have all of my Devices named.   I wanted to know by name what device has been triggered.

However, my Downstairs motion detector recently was triggered.   The alarm siren turned on.    So far, so good.   But when I looked at my timeline I could not determine what named sensor had been triggered.   It showed the device as "Motion Sensor xxxxxxxx"  and not as "Downstairs Motion Sensor".

What's wrong?

@ Clark711 I replied to your other post.  Please provide more information: What system do you have, SS2 or SS3? Do you have a monitoring plan, and if so, which one? Based on the questions you are asking, you may want to call support. They are open until midnight eastern.

Just found your reply.  

First, I did not know of a SS2 or SS3.    My system is "new".   I did originally have a SimpliSafe system from about a year+ ago, but it was replaced by SimpliSafe a month ago.   It is definitely the "new" system, so is that a SS3?

I have the $24 per month monitoring plan.
