    Aren't you using some form of cloud key/controller anyway though? It's good practice to keep an eye on things there also if it's something you use. It will give you insights to network usage of any cameras you have on there too.

    I do.
    But see my reply below why I think it would be useful to see all devices on my network in Untangle's 'devices'.

    I do have a managed switch.

    I just thought that it would be neat to see all devices on my network under "devices" so that I can i.e. associate them with a specific user, even if that device has not (yet) connected to the internet.

    Besides using the user to create reports I just find it useful to know to whom a device on the network belongs by associating it to a user.

    The easiest way to ensure your Device tab is filled, is to make sure Untangle is the DHCP server for the network. If it hands out an address, Untangle knows about it and fills in the appropriate details.

    Mine's never done that but I did set them statically anyway. Plus I just added them via MAC address to the device list just so I know they're there. Kind of an is-what-it-is situation. No firewall will do everything you want it to unfortunately.

    All my devices get their IP's from Untangle - including that Unifi Camera (as I can see when I look at the DHCP tab).
    However that camera does not show up under 'devices'.

    Factory reset it ? I have seen a few come that were static ip for some really weird reason, factory resetting it, fixed it.
