They use a wireless network as opposed to a physical cable to connect for the video output. But they use a cable for power. This can either be to a socket or to a battery bank.

This depends what you mean by wireless. The video feed for the camera is connected via Wifi AKA Wireless, but the camera does need a power supply, which involves a cord to a plug pack.
Incidentally, you can run this camera from a power bank ( be it for a limited time ) which would then technically make it completely wireless.

The product description contains the following text:

"The wyze Cam V2 must be powered to use (it does not have a battery)"

Wireless refers to the network connectivity and is not a reference to it's power source.

They communicate wirelessly with your router. No cables between the camera and your router.

Power is required to run them using power adapter and USB cable. Models from other companies may be powered by battery and communicate wirelessly with your router.

I understand where you are coming from. According to the description it is only a wireless communication. Where it can only be wireless in regards to viewing.

That is a misleading description as they are NOT wireless. It should be corrected

They are wireless as in WiFi. They are powered from a micro USB cable.
