All APs in specific IP range using vendor class ID - DHCP policies Server 2012 Domain Controller

Our setup is:
Domain Controller: Windows Server 2012 as the only DHCP server
Hivemanager: hosted
75 internal APs (230)
1 external AP (1130)
HiveOS 6.5r7.160188
Enterprise   6.8r7a

What I'd like to do:
Assign the APs IP address from our DHCP server inside a specific range, not assign AP a static IP or a DHCP reservation.

2012 Server's DHCP role allows you to assign devices to a specific IP range based on Vendor class ID using a policy.  I've not been able to find the vendor class ID for the AP230s that we have and the one AP1130 that we have.  I don't believe it's listed in the administrative guide or user's guide. 

I know this can be done with Mac address prefixes and wildcards but so far I've run into 4 separate Mac prefixes for our set of 76 Access Points.  It'd be much cleaner to do the vendor class ID and I believe this is the preferred way of segregating IP addresses based on hardware information.

So can anyone shed some light on this for me?  

Thanks in advance.
