Hard wiring For Auto Cloud Backup

The Auto Cloud Backup support page states that a WiFi and wall wart connection is required. Is there a way to hardwire to a PC and a wall wart for the Hero9 Black?

No that doen't work. From the FAQ about Cloud backup on the gopro website:

 

Does Auto Upload work when camera is connected to computer via USB?    

No. Auto Upload works only when your camera is sufficiently charged and connected to a wall charger.

 

The whole FAQ is here: https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/Auto-upload-your-footage-to-the-cloud/ta-p/388304 


For versatility I wanted to use my GpPro as a home security camera and I did not want wireless connectivity. Thank you.
