Do you care which doorknob you are monitoring/controlling?  At
some point you have to make the association between doorknob
location/function and IP address.  While doing that you may
also find it convenient to choose a simple integer with
lots of leading zeros.

I may also need to tell the doorknob what tftp server to download
it's configuration from (see: voip phones).

So, yes I would want DHCP for my door knobs.
