Not sure how many devices you're supporting, but I leverage an internal only DNS view that has a location and device type with number, then you can have a catch all in your .cloginrc that identifies them -

## Firewalls connect this way
add user *fw*                   {username}
add password *fw*              {password}	{en_password}
add method *fw*                 ssh telnet
add autoenable *fw*             0
