As far as I know, the intention is for your user to select a service 
name, not enter a host name.
The service is then resolved and the host name, ip address and other 
information discovered.
> Now the device is also accessible as:
> camera-front-door.local.

> acme-sx194j-3428472.local.
If you advertise the camera as a service on the host 
acme-sx194j-3428472.local you won't have this problem.
