As far as i can see (only using one of the 5 basics i have) there is no DNS service running as even though its on my network it doesnt report its name, so my router AC-88u doesnt report it on the network list.
Its the host name or more to the point its the name you see when you directly access its web interface…i think…
Saying that… i tend to ‘fire and forget’ lol. With the smart app being able to detect IP changes it doeant bother me. I’ve not had a single issue with it.
The new smartthings plug however is another matter…only had it 4 days and it constantly drops off… The smartthings multi sensor that sits roughly 3 feet from it never had a problem with drops at all…in months…till i plugged this smart plug in. Grr
