FYI I have just been playing with an aliexpress wifi camera that I made 
the same assumption about, the documentation it came with suggests you 
can only use it over the internet via the mobile app, but it seems that 
quite often they're actually runningĀ  a local RTSP server. If that is 
the case for your camera, then once it's on the wifi you can connect to 
it by discovering it's local IP address (either by checking your router 
/ dhcp server for new devices or by scanning your network for devices 
listening on port 554)
To test it you can connect with VLC (media -> open network stream) using 
the url format rtsp:// (replacing the ip address with 
your cameras ip).
I then blocked my camera's internet access using the router's firewall 
so it didn't send it's stream off to whatever 3rd party service and I 
access it using an android app called onvifer.
