View all devices - even old ones?

    let me see if we can do something about this.  The issue of displaying old devices will likely crowd a small screen.   But it is highly possible we can implement something on the web interface.  If anyone else want this feature please scream here, it will speed up our development process.

    Maybe move devices older than X days into something else. Or have the ability to recall devices older than X days into the main screen. I can see some benefits but not a priority for me, more of a nice to have feature.

    Thanks! Right now do the devices remain in the database permanently, and are just hidden from view, or are they purged at some point?

    We have guests that come over occasionally and connect to our wifi. It's great to have those devices  reappear the same way they were configured before (and named with the previous naming - since other people have strange device names :D). By occasionally, it might be just once a month, or even once a year (e.g. the family over for X-mas).

    I know that this is a old post, but is anything being done about this? Personally I expect 'all devices' to mean ALL devices, and then maybe have a filter for 'hide devices offline for n days'. I find not seeing all devices really annoying, for example my printer is currently not on the all-devices list and so how to I adjust its Firewalla profile without turning it on? Bizarrely I would have to turn it on in order to to be able to change it from using a dynamic to static IP address.

    On a security note I had my Brother's family over last week. They also came over last year but I don't recall giving them the WIFI details but I must have done (I thought they all used mobile data). So when they left I was surprised to to see their phones in the all-devices list, all presumably resurrected. If those devices had been always visible in 'all devices' over the last 6 months I'd have deleted them and told the guys to use mobile data, or a least blocked social, but there's no way I could have done that until they were already here and connected to the home LAN. It seems crazy to me.

    Let me forward this to the developers. the main issue to "hide" all devices, is all devices can be a lot depends on what network you run. I'll see if it is even possible to load and manipulate really old devices (1 or 2 weeks no activity old)

    Thanks! It would be a really useful feature for me.

    As an aside question, when migrating from one box to another are hidden devices also migrated? Just checking for when I'm migrating from my Blue to my (soon to arrive) Purple
