Stick up cam, Wifi??

Hi, looking at getting the stick up cam for in the garden as it doesn’t need to be plugged in.

My question is do you need to have your home Wifi on all the time, my wife is a bit OCD and likes everything turned off (wifi included) when we go on holiday. Would the stick up cam work and still connect through my alexa / ring app on my mobile while away?

No, wifi is required. No wifi, no device management or video recording/alerts.

You may need to look at an offline capable device such as Wyze that does local recording to a memory card. Granted same situation… no wifi, no remote device management or video access. But you could download the local video’s when back. (Or hide a secret special wifi AP that is always on.)
