On Friday we pushed an update out that contained a new device template call "Generic IP Device". What is the purpose of this device?
The "Generic IP Device", or template #2068 has been released to allow for any IP device to be added to dhcpd.conf (be careful, as it's just under "Generic IP Camera", which is for Motion Wrapper, so don't choose that when adding a Generic IP Device)
Any IP device added via the #2068 template gets an entry in dhcpd.conf and will mean that it will not change addresses over it's life-time in your system. Device Template #2068 should be added as a top level device ie at the same level inthe Device Tree as the Core.
An example of its use would be when adding Zoneminder cameras - add a Device template #2068 for each camera, adding the cameras IP/Mac address and click 'Save'. Now the cameras IP address will be fixed in dhcpd.conf.
