Engaged Sweeper

So we have a limit of 250 devices, and we are currently at 231 with only about 35 staff!
Of that, counting things like NAS, printers, VMs, and actual computers the list is more like 112.

The rest of the items are just things like people's smartphones which belong to the staff and are not assets at all. They just leech our wifi.

Obviously I'm worried about hitting my cap, so I am wondering a few things.

1) Does an ip address hit automatically get added to the list when it is found?

2) Do smartphones and tablets count against this list?

3) Basically I guess I am wondering if I need to do something about this?

On the other hand, I wonder if I can do something about this anyway? I don't want all that extra clutter. I know I can set them to inactive, but they still show up all over the place, is there something more permanent and complete that I can do, like delete and ignore?

Any device that is submitted for IP Address Range Scanning and that has one or more of the following protocols enabled will be scanned: FTP, HTTP, HTTPS, JetDirect, SIP, SMTP, SNMP (SNMPv1 or SNMPv2), SSH or Telnet. All scanned devices count towards your asset limit.

If unwanted machines have been scanned:
- Remove their IP ranges from IP Address Range Scanning under Configuration/Scanning Setup/Scanning Methods, to avoid future scan attempts.
- Delete them by clicking the Assets link at the top of the web console, ticking the checkboxes in front of the assets and hitting the Delete button on the left.
