seeing unknown devices connected after checking with the network inspector

hello, I'm seeing unknown devices connected after checking with the network inspector, particularly the ones I've tagged with the camera icons. I tried to investigate these things on my own by checking out these MAC addresses but I'm not very knowledgeable with these kind of things.

the 'eyeball' in the picture is not labeled by me, it was automatically named like that, I've tried searching for an apple product with "eyeball" but we don't own a vision pro. the one that catches my eye the most is the one I labeled 'UNKNOWN' as even when the other two people are out of the house, this one still remained connected.

is there a way to properly identify these things? or at least an expert to tell me what these devices connected are? thank you.

It is common for switches and like devices such as powerlink adapters to be prefixed with the wording "unknown." This can be verified by opening you router's GUI interface and mouse click on its Devices tab/setting.

Every device connected to your home network has a label attached to it that shows its assigned MAC address. The only way to verify connected network devices is to compare each device MAC address to that shown in Eset Network Inspector and your router's GUI interface.

The 'unknown' is labeled by me, its just originally blank, so is that AzureWave Technology, I simply labeled it based on its MAC

There should be only 3 phones, 2 computers. I don't know what the rest are suppose to be

Is the device where Network Inspector is being run using a Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection?

I tried checking, but no wonder I could not find it listed, I was 5 minutes too late.

As far as these camera symbol devices such as the Apple eyeball virtual device, I would say someone in your premise vicinity is able to connect to your Wi-Fi network. Check your router's Wi-Fi settings and ensure they are properly configured including their security settings.

I've decided to just let it be for the moment (not sure if this is a good decision though) and monitor things from time to time. its a striking chance that for some reason its no longer as active as before.

If there is a way to track these things for physical proof, it would be much appreciated. Thank you.
