Controlling access by IP Address

I have British Telecome internet in my home through the BT Router. My family can connect using ethernet and wifi.
Using the feature within the router, I can control the access by IP Address and set time of the day when the internet cannot be used by each connected device.
Problem is, any new device can be pugged in by cable and by default the device will be allowed internet access. I only want new devices (IP addresses) to be able to connect to the internet if allowed by me, i.e. the default should be that all all are bloked unless authorised.
Does the fingbox app and hardware do this?

    Yes, it does. It's controlled in the Network settings inside the app.


    I have it set to automatically block all new devices.


    @VioletChepil mind converting this to a question, please?

    Presumably I need to box to see how to do this? I have downloaded the app and looked in the Network section but cannot see how to automatically block all new devices.

    Yes, you need a Fingbox for this

    Yes, it works by doing whats known as Arp poisoning.

    For active monitoring and management, yes.  Fingbox is the way to go.
