Default Do you need WIFI on your temperature controller

Find a similar temperature controller on thesmokering,
Controller plus 25 CFM blower is US$410.
My controller plus 50 CFM blower is US$128.

The differences are:
1.Its output is simply on or off. So it has three blowers of 5,10, 25 CFM for small middle and big pits.
Mine has P.I.D. output, One 50 CFM blower can fit all or most pits.
P.I.D. output is much more clever, it collects history data, depending on performance of past, present, and predicted future tendency to determine the speed of blower. Benefit is that temperature fluctuation is much less.

2.Mine has adjustable manual output. It is useful when searing. or grilling.

3.It has WIFI, you can read or control from your computer.

My question is that is WIFI a must, or are you will to pay for extra cost for WIFI.
Depending on replies here I will decide whether I will add WIFI or not.
