Nuki Bridge without internet access

I bought a Nuki Bridge to be able to open my doors from my WiFi, however it seems like it needs access to the internet to work properly. As soon as I disallow internet access in my router (FritzBox in this case) the Bridge won’t properly connect to my devices and is not working as intended.

I dislike the idea of having internet access on my Bridge. My main goal is to maintain the most secure solution but still be able to manage my devices over WiFi. Therefore exposing the Bridge to the internet is a potential security hole in my opinion. I don’t want to rely on trust that there are no security holes in the software. Bugs happen.

Is there some possibility to disallow internet access for the Bridge?
