Assigning Device to a vlan based on Mac Address Cisco

Hello, I have a Cisco switched network environment consisting of two vlans, vlan1 for data and vlan2 for voice.  
We have several Polycom video endpoints which are moved among various switch ports throughout our building.  Unfortunately these same switch ports may also be used for data connection.  
Is there a way to ensure that these Polycom units end up in vlan2 at all times?
They use fixed IP addresses.

I think the best solution for the polycom phones is the way I have configured mine (of course :) )
leave all ports untagged on VLAN 1 so that any PC that connects to it picks up the data vlan (VLAN1) and leave VLAN2 as tagged.  You'll then need to configure all polycom phones to use tagged mode.  You should be able to go in to the network menu on the phones and select VLAN2.
That will automatically select VLAN2 when it connects to the network.

I don't use polycom video endpoints but use polycom phones company wide with DHCP and that's how they're configured... all VoIP is on VLAN 7 and all Polycom phones are configured to use VLAN 7

It depends on which switches you have on your network, buy you might be able to use a VLAN ACL.

Depending on your model of video camera, they may support being forwarded to a particular VLAN, based on a DCHP scope option.  You could then set DHCP IP reservations so the camera still keep their IP's.

Thanks for the suggestion, there is no way to configure the Polycom Video endpoints to use tagging.

What you're looking for is Dynamic VLAN assignment, based on MAC address. This article explains the requirements and how it works.
