I want to connect to the tplink security camera via on it's app on my tablet. Two devices have to be connected to the same network. I don't need an internet connection. In this case, do I have to use a router to do this pr just an access point is enough to make a local network?

  • Unfortunately, questions about home networking and consumer-grade devices are off-topic here, as are question about applications and host/server configurations. You could try to ask this question on Super User.

An access point is sufficient. Some access point models do not allow client to client communication unless specifically allowed. You also need to assign IP addresses, unless you use APIPA.
