Identify devices by MAC rather than DHCP IP Address

I was just setting up a new agent and thought I saw an option to identify devices by MAC  or IP. Not thinking it thru, I clicked IP. I don't recall if this happened in the Fingbox or Domotz agent setup. Have not been able to track down this feature in the apps or community. While my important devices have "static" ip reservations via DHCP, non-critical devices will change IP based on what's available. The impacted device becomes a zombie in my device list, not seen for xxx days, only to reappear under another IP at a later time. How do I switch an agent to identifying devices by MAC only?

By default, the Domotz Agent identifies devices by MAC address only.

 

The identification by IP addresses is only available when adding private subnet to be scanned (Layer 3 scans)
