Hi, recently found out about this app, which is great!

So I been looking at connected devices on my wifi and see that my Android TV box is listing as an IP Camera, why is this?

Can someone provide me with some feedback?

Thanks

    Hi @jay1867 welcome to the community and thanks for asking your question.
    Sometimes the information that Fing stores to help identify devices can display something other than what it actually is.  What I would do, is check the MAC address in the Fing app and ensure that it is indeed, your smart TV.  Once that happens you can change the information for this device which will help other consumers receive a more successful result when identifying things.
