Fing, App to Scan Home Network


Fing, an app to monitor your home network.
 


In addition to your computer, phones and tablets, you probably have more and more things at home connecting to your network

And you may be using services for home security, home automation etc that use some of these network-enabled devices.

Once configured on your network, how do you know which devices are using your network and what is their address – IP address, MAC Address – so you can manage them.

Fing is a free app that will scan your home network and help you find all devices on your network - their IP address, MAC address. It will scan all of your LAN and WiFi networks

For example, if you want to find the address of Xfinity Home security camera on your network, Fing can easily find it for you.

Fing’s is quite a useful network app to monitor and manage your home network. The one improvement needed in Fing – it’s user interface, which seems to be from years ago.

Fing is available for Android, iOS, Kindle Fire, Cisco Cius, Windows, Mac OS X and Linux – not for Windows 8 yet.
