It would have been better if we can assign STATIC IP Address to devices from device side, because I am planning to use too many devices and assigning IP address for to many devices crash the DHCP server

You can bind MAC address to a reserved IP in your DHCP server. MAC Address can be found by connecting device to an android hotspot

I am aware of IP Address reservation, though it take resources of router, I am about static IP assignment to device itself so it does not have to get IP Address from router DHCP server in anyway, and there are so many IoT Devices on my network for my router to handle
