Is there a way to get around the 5g connection?
If you mean the need to use 2.4 GHz WiFi and not 5 GHz WiFi, the answer is no. Something has to be listening on the 2.4 GHz band. The camera hardware does not communicate at 5 GHz. You could always front end it with a 2.4 GHz band router or access point that you connect to your main network.
If you mean 5G mobile cellular (5th generation) similar to 4G LTE, there is no connection restriction I’m aware of.
