Add static IP devices to IoT Security by uploading a
list of them in a CSV file.
If you have a list of the static IP addresses
for your devices, enter them in a CSV (comma-separated values) file
and upload it to IoT Security.
There is a limit of 10,000
static IP devices for each uploaded CSV file. If you need to upload
more than 10,000, upload multiple CSV files.
Navigate to the User-defined Static IP Devices

) and then click
Upload static IP devices
Click the link to download the CSV template.
Fill out the template with static IP device information
or create a new file in the same format as the template and fill
Enter the static IP address of each device you want to
upload. Optionally enter its MAC address, vendor, and model in the
columns indicated in the template.
IoT Security uses IP addresses
rather than MAC addresses to identify and track static IP devices.
The additional user-configured attributes provide extra information when
referring to entries on the User-configured Static IP Devices page
later. However, only the uploaded IP addresses and (if provided)
MAC addresses will ever appear on the Devices and Device Details
Return to the User-defined Static IP Devices page, click
Upload static IP devices
choose or drag the completed CSV file onto the space in the dialog
box, and then
If IoT Security previously detected network activity from
one of the uploaded IP addresses, it’s considered a match. The Device
Matches counter at the top of the page increases incrementally and
“matched” appears in the Result column for this IP address. IoT
Security then adds the static IP device to its inventory and displays
it on the Devices and Device Details pages. It takes several minutes
for IoT Security to check for potential matches with existing data
and then update the inventory and static IP device list accordingly.
IoT Security has not yet detected network activity for one of the
uploaded IP addresses, it’s considered “not found”. In this case,
the Devices Not Found counter increases incrementally and a dash
appears in the Result column. If IoT Security later discovers network
activity for this IP address, it moves it from “not found” to “matched”, adds
the static IP device to its inventory, and begins displaying it
on the Devices and Device Details pages.
If a user-defined
MAC address is different from a MAC address IoT Security detects
on the network, the detected MAC address overrides the user-defined
