Nest Devices + IP addresses

I see that there have been past posts regarding Nest devices not showing IP addresses while they are connected to the host site and live.
The Ubiquiti Controller shows the Nest Products ( Thermo and Protect ) and assigned IP's, but no active info show in the fing search. 

With both desktop Mac version & IOS.

Interested if anyone has found a solution. If memory serves me correctly, I believe they did show up in previous releases.

    Hi @dlsinger03 thanks for asking  your question.
    I'm assuming that you can PING the devices if you discover what IP they are and it responds normally?

    Haven't seen a solution for that as of yet, but about the only thing I'm using Fing for is to block new devices, so I use my Ubiquiti controller to see installed hardware and client devices (and associated IP addresses).

    @dlsinger03 FWIW, my Nest Thermostat (1st Gen) does show up in both the Fing Desktop (macOS) and Fing iOS apps with my Fingbox v2.  However, my Nest Protect, which I just added today, does not show up in the Desktop app.  But it does show up in the iOS app with the same IP as listed in the Nest app.  And I even got the New Device on network, flashing Blue LED on my Fingbox.

    And I can do a MAC Lookup and see the Nest Protect on the Fing Desktop app.
