Devices on Wifi extender not listed in App - help?

I have the Coredy 300Mbps WiFi Range Extender and notice that when connected to it (with a cell or tablet) the device does not show up in the xFi app.

Is this an issue with xFi or the extender, or just the way the technology works?

Kids devices are connected to it but do not show up so I cannot manage them...

 

Thoughts?

desmo907, this is how the technology works. It won't show the devices connected to xFi via a "3rd party". xFi needs a direct handshake to the devices connected via WiFi or ethernet (unless you're using xFi pods or something)
