Easily Scan, Measure, and Monitor Networks with Fing App @domotz

Domotz recently acquired Fing, so it’ll be interesting to see if their service changes in the near- or far-future, but Fing looks like a reliable network scanner – for example, think how this could be used to find your ESP8266 or Raspberry Pi address. Simple design touches like the colored-highlights for the final segment of the IP address make it a pleasure to look, and some of the features like Wake On LAN could prove useful. Do you use Fing or some other scanner app?

  1. I’ve used Fing for a number of years now on my iPad, makes for a great networking scanning tool. On my Android phone I use PingTools Pro which is equally as good. Both are fairly ‘noisy’ though, definitely not passive, so I wouldn’t use it on work or public networks or any others that aren’t yours.. unless you have explicit permission of course 🙂

  2. Thanks Ollie. I was unaware of PT Pro. There are some useful features – for instance the Watcher and IP Calculator – in that app too!
