The short answer is NO. You CAN purchase a remote (some bundles come with this), but the smart phone/tablet is still required. Also note the "Breeze Cam" app is only available for android and apple ios. The Breeze uses 5g wifi for it's connection, so your smart phone/tablet must support 5g to work. The remote connects to the phone using bluetooth. 16g memory is built into the breeze and no other memory is needed.
IMHO at it's current price, the Breeze is a great buy.
