That puts me at 14-15, despite not having any IOT stuff. (except Alexa, who occasionally gives us a weather report, and talk to my mom when she visits)

Oops, I forgot the gaming machines that live here. Oh, and the printer... probably some more. So I voted 7-10, but it should be 16-20.

Yeah, your categories should probably go up higher.

I'm in the 30-40 range normally (6 Kindles, 2 smartwatches, 2 cell phones, 3 iPads, 2 Chromebooks, 3 laptops, SmartThings hub, NAS, video processing server, security camera NVR, printer, 2 Home Minis, 5 Chromecast Audios, a Chromecast, DVR, TV, and a few other odds and ends). I think my neighbor uses my network too (with permission), but I haven't checked how many devices she has, so maybe another 3-4 from her house. I didn't count my Unifi APs since those are network gear though they use IP addresses on the network.

When my in-laws come into town we have probably an additional 10-15 devices for everyone's cell phones and computers. My FIL alone has 3 cell phones, an iPad, and 2 computers for some reason.

The neighbors on your WiFi might nominate you for such an award.

There are 5 of us in the household, plus I have an extra kindle on my nightstand in case I forget mine in my backpack before bed and I'm feeling lazy. So it is 5 paperwhites and 1 basic ereader.

I replaced my router not long ago, and decided to go with a new network name. So I had to update a ton of devices. It's easy to lose track just how many are connected!
