Do I have to use DHCP MAC Address Reservations on the SM5200 web interface if I have some devices set statically?

Issue

Configuration question.

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

SM5200

Cause

Unclear DHCP options given on the web interface

Resolution

No. This can be used to reserve an IP address that is within the DHCP scope. The typical alternative would be configuring the DHCP scope to not include the static addresses being used.
