Allowing camera to work without WIFI

That ability would also be helpful to those of us who have unreliable internet connections or in the event a burglar disables the internet connection.  I've only had one alarm event, but it happened in the middle of the night and the internet connection just happened to be down at that time.  So the cameras were useless in determining whether there was a real threat.  It turned out to be a false alarm caused by a heater vent too close to a motion detector.  But having the cameras "fall back" to still pictures or low-frame-rate video sent through the cellular backup system would have been very helpful in that event.
