Z6 or 7 time lapse, thoughts/recommendations?

I may have another big time-lapse coming up. It's not my favorite thing honestly but it's cool when it's done. The first one I did was 116 hours continuous and it nearly killed me. Processed in LR with LR Timelapse I think the post production doubled the actual shooting hours. Not fun and not easy.

Wondering about the in camera time lapse feature and whether it's a viable option for an extended Time Lapse. I have not tested it yet.

Any good time lapse links or advice greatly appreciated, specifically to the Z6 or 7 which I will rent for the job. I'm going to do some testing but pretty sure I'm going to try using some AUTO modes this time... I simply don't have the time to battle with manually shot and improperly exposed RAW files again. But if I don't use the built in TL feature I will shoot RAWs.

Which reminds me, can the camera be monitored via bluetooth or wifi on my iPhone/iPad while it's in operation? Sequence will be one shot every 15 seconds.

Thanks for any advice.
