No Router, Please

I have a WYZE CAM v2, model WYZEC2.

To use it, a router would not be necessary if one could create a WiFi-Direct/Peer-to-Peer/Ad-Hoc network to connect the camera and a smartphone or PC, just as one connects a wireless printer.

Does anyone know the procedure to create such a network with this camera?

The cameras require a connection to Wyze servers when they first boot so a peer to peer connection will not work.

As to why they need that connection I am not 100% sure. You would need to contact Wyze support for that.
