Best way to scan is to have a separate network range for your network devices, that way it will only discover devices you're interested in. If your network devices are just mixed in the ranges with computers etc, then you'll have to scan the whole range. But once you've done a scan, tick all the all the devices you're not interested in and then click on Add to Ignore List. That way it won't scan them again.
Try to have your network devices separated from the general devices. It will make live easier. You could either have a dedicated range(s) or reserve the last 20 IP addresses in the range for network devices.
Hope that helps.
Yep, currently we have separated our different device types into ranges within the subnet. And that is how we set up our scanning, just to use ranges within the subnet.
Just wanted to confirm it was probably the best way.
