Pulling specific MAC/IP-addresses from Wi-fi router and directed them to a Raspberry Pi?

The purpose of our project is to “sniff” for specific MAC/IP-addresses so we can use the MAC/IP-addresses to turn off or on the alarm system. The idea is to automate the alarm system in “our house”. We have one raspberry Pi with installed Linux Mate that we are going to use to monitor the network with, one Raspberry Pi to turn on and off the alarm and a router for WLAN for the devices to connect. We would have rather used MAC addresses over IP addresses as it probably is more secure, but MAC addresses are probably harder to manage. We are using a TP-Link tl-wr841nd.

Does anyone have tips on how we can progress in this matter?
