DHCP Reserved Addressing And Network Security

Hi all,

We're currently having our network reconfigured as we bring our analogue system into a digital model.

One question which i had refers to the network security. I manage a city surveillance project and as of such have many remote links. Some of which are spread across wireless networks (firetide) and remote fibre nodes.

Although i understand the benefit of having static ip addresses.... for security would it not be better to have a dhcp server setup and then have dhcp snooping set across network switches/devices?

My 'fear' if you call it that, is that someone could plug into one of the remote cameras, use a manufacturer scanning tool to pick the ip, set their pc to the ip range and then gain access to one side of my network.

There will be segregation with vlans however looking for something a little more secure.

Any suggestions/ideas to the above?
