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.

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

I have checked the MAC addresses from the ewelik on the router  (ARP table as well as in DHCP Server) and the MAC addresses are different.  Please, can some body check the MAC addresses in ewelink and in the router and place the result? Thanks.

Yikes!  I can confirm what you are saying.  The MAC address reported in the app is not the wifi MAC.  It does NOT agree with the MAC address shown by a router.  It is essentially useless.

I am going to post it in the app forum.

What about the iOS users? When can they also read the MAC address? The LAN MAC address of course! Why does it take so long?

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.) 

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!!!!

can we have a date for which this problem will be solved?

I have about thirty devices but I'm not able to make the reservation on the dhcp

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