I am not counting switches that are not WAPs/routers as they don't have IPs. I have another 5-6 of those.

Taking a quick look at the DHCP reservation list, I've got 43 devices, and I've got two switches and a router which have static IP addresses to.

There are some devices that I haven't turned on for a long time that aren't counted in that list (e.g. PS3, Wii).

... off the top of my head there are the following devices on the network:
7: Sonos (5 zones, 2 controllers)
9: PCs/Macs
3: tablets (2 iPads, 1 Nexus 7)
4: Smartphones
2: HDHomeRuns
1: Nest Thermostat
3: Nest Protect
5: Game Consoles (3x Xbox 360, 1x PS3, 1x Wii)
2: TVs that would lease a IP address
1: Hue bridge
1: VoIP ATA
1: Hyper-V VM server which may be leasing a number of IPs at any given point in time

edit: I thought of some more devices.

4 X bedrooms
Kitchen
Office
Exercise Rm
Pool Cabana (Seasonal May-Oct) Nothing like watching Wimbledon finals while floating in your pool on a hot July day.

The do have MAC addresses though.

Here, I have 4 computers (one is my router/firewall), access point, tablet, 2 smart phones (one only used for testing), A/V receiver, PVR, Blu-ray player. I also have a Nokian N800, but it's been years since I last fired it up. I have a few other devices that are collecting dust in my closet, but are not connected.

I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...

You don't have any smartphones, tablets or A/V devices that connect to your LAN?

Nope. I don't have a smartphone or tablet and my AV equipment is all "stand-alone". I close my blinds with my hands and turn lights on/off in the same manner.

I first started thinking about this when I was wondering how long it would be until I filled up a subnet as more and more devices are connecting to your LAN. But as long as stuff like lighting devices are on their own LAN I doubt I will ever hit 250 or so - but my Control4 Zigbee Pro network is probably close to a hundred with dimmers, switches, keypads, etc.

I generally am the same in regards to the blinds/switches.

Though I do have to say, I like my WEMO lightswitch. Have it connected to the outside front lights, and have auto scheduled for morning (well when it was dark in the AM) and eve so always come home to the lights on.

I do have a few plug based ones (currently through the rogers home security system).
Mostly used as TIMERS, for the fishtank, Christmas tree and other such things.
Sure could use a more basic timer, but find these ones have much more flexibility in terms of schedules, etc.
