IP Scanner Home for Macintosh scans your local area network to determine the identity of all machines and internet devices on the LAN. Powerful results, yet easy and intuitive to use.
The Home edition of IP Scanner supports identifying and customizing results for up to 21 devices on your home network. To manage networks larger than 21 devices, consider IP Scanner Pro, also available on the App Store.
IP Scanner is all about customizing the way you see your network. You may apply custom names and icons to the devices on your network and adjust the type and amount of information you see in the network overview.
IP Scanner can be used in several primary modes: as a way to get a quick overview of which devices are currently on the network, including seeing which devices are actively and passively present.
It may also be used in a 'cumulative' mode which displays network changes over time, including options to display devices which were once present but now no longer visible.
Finally, by using the whitelist and blacklist features, you may filter out known and trusted devices to quickly reveal new or unexpected ones: a great way to easily identify unwanted network visitors.
IP Scanner also includes Growl support for notifications of new devices and changes in device state.

Who's Were? - Excellent app for finding the entrails of your networking. And finding those that should not be on the network. Gives I.P. Address as well as Mac and when was it last seen. Config port scans, pings and wake on lag. Icons for what device are on the network so u know at a glance what type of device is there. All in all for me it is a good app.
Crashes on open. Lowered device limit. Non-existant support - Total garbage. I had paid for an upgrade and now have a new device limit imposed by the new “Home” version. Customers who upgraded standard version should have received the Pro version. Hardly matters because the app crashes constantly. Within about ten seconds, every time. The customer support forums are locked. The support people have not logged in there since November. AVOID!! And Apple how about a little quality control on the app support rules.

Works well for identifying what’s on the network - Works very well in identifying what devices are on the network with a sortable list by name, IP, MAC etc. Autoidentifies operating system, chipset, and so on. Very handy for keeping track of what should (and should not) be on your network. Well worth the small price. Very helpful for ‘where did I put that printer!’ and other pertinent questions about your network.
ANOTHER (!) Brief note on developer responsiveness - Jun 01, 2017: This app has been getting fairly continual enhancements and bugfixes. I find it to be a (increasingly) reliable and useful network tool, and am very glad I found it a few years ago. — historical review follows Last week I submitted an enhancement request to allow choice of export format in the Export dialog (it had been hidden away in Preferences... where I didn't expect it and couldn't find it). Well, this week, I see this new version implementing that feature, probably in response to my request! This is what I was after. Thanks, Guys!
Bait and Switch Typical Garbage - I hate these poor apps that are free, then a couple bucks to get more services and finally big bucks to do what they sell you in the first place. I would rather know that I need the Pro version than waste my time working through your time-wasting software. There are better free products out there. Don’t buy. Wasted time with this. You owe me $100 for my time.
Hardly bait-and-switch - This app is nicely designed, displays a ton of info, interacts with devices, and is very customizable. It’s limited to 21 devices, which ought to be ample for the average household, and which categorizes it as NOT bait-and-switch in my book. If that’s not enough, the clever user can always delete some items temporarily to make room for others. But if you consistently need to display more than 21 items, you probably will want the more powerful pro version anyway—especially if you want to track all the devices on the several different networks your laptop uses, as I do.
