Unknown Generic Azule device and additional iPhone IP address

Hi, 
I am trying to sort out some devices on my network. First, there is a generic device on our account that shows up as on all the time on the FING program. The MAC address indicates it is made by Azule, so ought to be a mini PC or like product. However, we do not own any mini PCs, and are strictly a Apple family.

On my Verizon router, however, the same internal private IP address (starts with a 192 just as our router does) shows up only intermittently (when I sign into the router) as Active.  The listing, of course, remains there as Inactive. No one in the family could identify the device,  or was willing to admit what it was. So we added it to the block list on the router's firewall. However, it still shows up at "on" via the Fing app. 
Any idea how I can find out what kind of device it is? When I ping it the ping graph goes up and down, all over the place. Could it be associated with something on the router itself somehow?

We do not have a smart home or any such devices. Our video games, printer, etc etc are all accounted for and named on other devices found by the network. 

I'm confused and would like to figure out what it is. I have some concern that someone in my family could have set up a device without my knowing--either a teenager or my spouse.

    @Sunflower, they also make embedded and iOt devices.  Not necessarily just stand alone mini PC’s.  So its possible a device, even your ISP’s modem/router, could be using it.

    Thanks! I was able to check the longer MAC address and find it’s actually made by Azurewave technologies not Azulle. They seem to make a variety of cameras and also mini pC chips. I don’t think our Apple devices have those but I might be incorrect.

    Apple devices probably not but if you have anything like a camera, smart device, smart doorbell, thermostat,  etc, it could be using that.  That’s the problem with embedded devices, they often don’t match the brand of the actual device you are using.  You would need to shut down your devices, one at a time till it no longer responds in order to narrow it down.

    Thanks. No smart devices in the house or security cameras but I read that PlayStations might use it. Thanks for the suggestion to re-add devices if need be.

    You can remove the device by clicking on it and then scroll down to remove it. Thanks

    I have three PlayStations in the house and no device like you mention. Have you gotten any new appliances in the past few years? Many of them can be smart home enabled even if you didn't buy it for that and didn't set it up. It could be trying to connect.
