I am looking for a Wyze camera that doesn’t need the Internet or WiFi to operate. I want to record (to SD memory), and then allow viewing (and hopefully downloading) to a mobile phone, connected by WiFi local hotspot.
I haven’t tested a Wyze camera yet, but I have tested a few other brands and all of them refused to even install without an Internet connection. The Wyze camera descriptions are not clear about their setup and configuration. This is important because I need to set up and operate a camera where there is no access to WiFi or Internet.
I’ve read messages from others that led me to believe that Wyze is just like all the others. That is, Wyze cameras inexplicably also require an Internet connection for motion capture video. How disappointing! I cannot understand why Wyze cameras require Internet? There are so many scenarios where one would want to record motion capture, without Internet. Remote location recording, power outages, etc.
