What devices are they?

do you have smart device? Alexa's? 

do they have mac addresses? 

 

You can always go into access control and disable their access

To add on to the other post, apple's new update comes with a Private Address feature that spoofs the devices MAC Address for privacy reasons, you might be seeing a different MAC Address on your wifi and it could be yourt own phone's multiple MAC's.

it was 2 devices already connected to my elan.
When I UPDATED the app, it forced new names and icons in the device list ! SOOOOOOO
my Samsung stove oven became a smartwatch, and my Feit smart floodlights camera became a TV.
PRETTY funny right? But I THOUGH(naturally) that someone had connected a TV & Smartwatch!
The update should NEVER do something like that, rather an informational message explaining what is NOW AVAILABLE through the update and how to access it to make WANTED adjustments!

Crazy devices. 

Sounds like you have it figured out.

I had something similar happen, I keep a notepad document with all the MAC addresses and names associated to the each device, simple method for tracking who's who.
