What is the network name/IP Address/MAC Address for the SimpiSafe device(s) on my wifi network?

I was searching through my home network router and there is a device there with a name like HIRKTPCOMVK5D. It lists the hardware address too.

I think that is the SimpliSafe base station, but I can't be sure.  How do I determine what IP address it uses, or the MAC address?

On my router, it's espressif

You can check the IP by going into the Diagnostics on your keypad and looking at the wifi information.

Yes this is by FAR the easiest and most reliable way to find the IP address and MAC.  Thanks for the tip!

My hub has a MAC starting with 10:52:1C - and espressif is listed as the manufacturer as well.

You can determine the address/name of any device on your home network by following these steps:

1) Find in your router software where they list every device, and do a screensave of that list.  

2) Disconnect one device.  Rescan the router list and see what is missing.
