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.

simple, useful, accurate, lightweight, even 100% idiot-proof! - If you are a network admin you may prefer a more robust tool, but for a simple scan, this app gives you a quick accurate overview of what's on your network (wired and wireless). You can even give custom names for the devices it doesn't identify correctly (i.e. iPhone, printers, TV, storage, router, etc.), so it makes for an excellent troubleshooting tool the will save you time for sure. It even gives you trick little icons for each device. It also gives you the MAC address when it can. If you're looking for a simple, lightweight, easy to use app, this is the one. Definitely a must have for administering your networks. Make sure to get the version that supports the number of devices you have. I have 14 so I got the pro version and I'm very happy with it. Overall, probably the best bang for the buck from any app that I've purchased.
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.

Great app, but no Apple Watch icon - Still a mainstay of my network management (now 20 devices, unless I missed turning some on for this scan). Very well designed, does what I need. But… No Apple Watch icon that I can see! Oh noes! :-) — 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!
