When a device first connects to your home network, the default name of the device is displayed. The default name usually includes the manufacturer or model (for example "Samsung" or "iPhone"), or the MAC address of the device. If you gave your device a name when you first set it up, that will be displayed.
If you do not recognize a device, try these steps:
Go to the Devices section in BlueCurve Home. Select the device from the list, then select Device Details to see the manufacturer.
If the device is connected to your home network, there should be a green dot indicating that it's online, which may also help with identifying what device it is.
Access the hostname or MAC address in your device's settings. If the default name displayed is a long string of numbers and letters, it's likely the MAC address.
If you haven't yet personalized a device, BlueCurve Home will let you know. Click the Personalize at the top button and the app will walk you through the rest. To personalize other devices, continue to Step 4 below.
Select the device you want to personalize.
Click the Edit button at the top-right.
Click See all device types to change the device icon.
Choose the device type (for example "Phone" or "Tablet"), then click Next. Scroll up and down to see more device types.
Click on Device Name and enter a name for the device (for example "Kate's iPhone").
Select Apply Changes.
Select Close to return to the device details page.
Removing a device from BlueCurve Home will remove it from the Devices section, and any associated profiles. If applicable, this will also clear all historical network activity for that device in BlueCurve Home.
