Can I use this without installing an "app" on my phone or mobile device?
Asked by: Ramanand
Thanks. I have a follow up question: If I install the app, does it need cell phone / internet connectivity to control the camera or can it work stand alone using a line of sight or proximity approach? Asking because I am simply too worried about opening up my android phone to apps that require ALL the permissions to my phone -- kind of scary.
