*Stick Up Cam Plug In (3rd Gen) supports Motion Warning if it's installed in wired mode and is powered by an AC adaptor. In general, the feature isn't available on battery-powered devices, even if the devices are connected to external power. If your device is not eligible for Motion Warning, the toggle button will be gray and unusable.
