You can try to keep track of connected devices in HomeConnect.  However, it's also routine for many mobile devices to randomize the MAC address that they use to connect to Wi-Fi networks, and that can make it difficult to identify the actual device that is connected to your network.

 

If you suspect that an unauthorized person is connecting to your Wi-Fi, you can always change your Wi-Fi password... and see if you suddenly hear loud cursing.
