Connected devices

Can my router show a connected device that's not really connected? Lets say I have my daughters phone saved on the list. She is supposed to be at a sleepover across town. I see her phone with a green dot on the xfi app. Is it possible it's a mistake or is she really there connected?

I could be mistaken, but I believe she would have to be connected using your wifi SSID/password to appear in xFi.  I sometimes see devices in xFi that are not really connected because they are turned off.
