Doing this professionally?  If so spend the money and get the CamRanger.  Having live view and full camera control from a tablet or phone up to several hundred feet away is invaluable.  The time you will save in staging the scene and lighting (if you do this) will pay for the device in a couple of shoots.

I don't have the CamRanger but used the wifi to a tablet extensively with a 6D for commissioned architecture.  Using live view, I saved so much time staging interiors that I couldn't imagine going back to the old method (check through viewfinder, adjust scene, repeat ad nauseam).

The feature works great on my 5D4 also, but with limited range.  If I wasn't semi-stepping away from these gigs I'd have invested in a CamRanger years ago.
