Why can't I add a LAN computer to "Computers & Contacts"?

I go to "Add remote computer" and enter the LAN IP address in the "TeamViewer ID" field like I can do with "Partner ID" in the "Remote Control" tab.

But it refuses and tells me to check my input and enter a teamviewer ID.

I mean, you got to be kidding me! Is the only way to be more productive to be less secure??
