Show MAC address in the App - MUCH NEEDED SIMPLE FEATURE

I have many Sonoff devices, mostly basic switches.  Once I name a device something I can no longer see the MAC address in the app.  I also have several routers and APs.  I would like to be able to give the devices a name in the router's database so I can identify which Sonoff is connected to what AP etc.  It would be VERY USEFUL and probably very easy to supply the MAC address under device information in the phone app.

I also have several devices that work with the Smart Life app and it does show the MAC of each device.  That has allowed me to name the devices in my router and monitor each one's status on my network.


So my request is to please improve the phone app by enabling it to show the MAC address of Sonoff devices.  At it stands it is impossible to tell one from another when looking at the network unless I am missing a trick that will let me connect my device named Barn Light SW with a MAC address.

I noticed the Android app updated the other day and was hopeful that this feature had been added.  Disappointed that is was not... 

Yes, this feature is absolutely essential for managing a group of devices. Of course, I should have kept a record as I renamed each one, but now it's too late. 


I've just spent a few hours using google WiFi to monitor traffic to see when IP got busy when repeatedly switched - eventually got the lot (and tagged them with a serial no and the last two digits of the MAC, so it should not be a doddle to match again if needed.) 

Come on folks. This is not a difficult feature to include. Creates a lot of work to manage devices once they are connected if you cannot identify them at the router/switch level.

PLEASE ADD THIS FEATURE. IT IS THE ONLY APP THAT DOESN'T SHOW DEVICE MAC ADDRESS

Hi, I will also appreciate this feature that is very useful for managing the devices on router level.

yes is a good idea

They did it.  The latest version of ewelink shows the MAC address under settings for each device.

I just checked each of my Sonoffs (10) and they are all sitting at 2.6.0 and it says that that is the latest firmware.  I'm in Australia, maybe they are rolling out the updates to regions in sequence.


EW can you please tell me what firmware you have on your devices?

There is no MAC address to see in the 2.6.0 version! Also not in the 2.7.0 with the 4 channel. ITEAD we urgently need this!!!!

My devices are running firmware version 2.6.0 but that has nothing to do with showing the MAC address.  The key to that is your ewelink version.  Make sure you have the latest.  I am running Android 3.5.6.

Ok. Sorry. I have 3.5.4 on iOS. No Mac!
Thank you E W. After forcing an update on my Android devices to V3.5.6, I was delighted to see the MAC addresses at the end of the list for devices. Thank you to the people at ITEAD
