We use CWP in all of our sites that displays a usage policy for the public to accept before proceeding.
We are a library environment, and have devices for reading books to those users with visual disabilities. These devices get their books from the internet, and can use Wi-Fi to do so.
What we'd like to do is put an exception on the CPW so that only these devices can access Wi-Fi without having to accept the usage policy, since these device can't surf the internet, they have no way of displaying or accepting the Wi-Fi usage policy.
Is this possible?

We discussed this yesterday:

For now, you need to set up another SSID but the feature is coming.
