Learn how to manage and personalize devices connected to your home network with the Ignite HomeConnect App (formerly known as BlueCurve Home App). Personalizing your devices lets you easily identify them, view network activity, pause Internet access, and more. In the Devices section of Ignite HomeConnect, you can view all devices that are currently or were previously connected to your home network, as well as devices that have Internet access currently paused.

How to identify a device

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 Ignite HomeConnect. 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.
