Will Oasis Still Work Without WiFi?

I had asked this question a while back, and the answer was that the Oasis would work without Wifi, just wanted to check if anything has changed.

My work has strict wifi protection and I don’t believe the Oasis will connect. Is it still possible to use it if only my phone can connect to wifi?

Where did you ask? That shouldn’t have been the answer, as Oasis Mini does need a wifi connection to queue up patterns. If you connect, send a pattern, and disconnect, then it can run on internal memory for a while.

We investigated using Bluetooth, but the data transfer speeds are pretty poor, and it has a bunch of other issues compared to wifi.

I originally asked on the FB group on June 16th. After looking back at the post, I didnt correctly remember the answer given.

"The current plan is that this will be a wifi device. I do believe the board we’re using has the ability to create its own network for you to connect to without an external network, but I’m not certain, and I can’t promise that we’ll be able to implement it. The thinking was moreso that it would communicate with your phone over your home or work network. "

Is this still the case?

That is accurate, but the device creates a network for the purpose of helping you connect it to your wifi network. You do need a wifi network for it to work.
