Wifi download to cloud or laptop

Is there any way to download from a Hero7 black to a laptop or the cloud via WiFi when it's connected to the mains (and has no battery in)?  I can't believe there's no way to do this!

 

I am doing a long timelapse (several weeks) via a series of individual photos controlled via a BlinkX.  I have the GoPro firmly mounted on a tripod that I don't want to disturb.  It is connected to the mains, but has no battery in it (as recommended by BlinkX) and I would like to download the images somehow via WiFi - either to a laptop or the cloud.

 

- - GoPro Plus Autoupload doesn't work as you need to have a battery installed and at full capacity for it to work (which is frustrating when the GoPro is connected to the mains)

- Connecting to the GoPro using http://10.5.5.9:8080 doesn't seem to work with the Hero 7

- Quik doesn't work as you need a cable (or to remove the card), neither of which is possible

- I can't download to my phone with the GoPro App as the files are enormous vs the capacity of my phone

 

So I have a GoPro 7 I can connect to fine via WiFi, but seemingly no way to download files off the SD card - which is crazy!

Re: Wifi download to cloud or laptop

Hi @bravebluff12644

 

Currently, these are the ways you can upload files to the cloud.

Importing files to a computer can only be done via cable connection or by using an SD card adapter. 

 

Wireless transfer to your laptop/NAS is currently not an option.

But we'll have this sent as a feedback.

Please continue checking our website for updates.

 

Thanks!

Ej
