Captive Web Portal Exclusion

Just wondering if there is a way to make any kind of exclusion in the captive web portal for certain types of devices.  Currently have 2 SSIDs setup, 1 w/ Radius for internal users and the 2nd is a guest network w/ a psk and a captive web portal.  Recently a couple of Smart TVs were added to the network as well as some devices that are used for streaming media which have no means of accepting the portal settings.  I was considering deploying a 3rd SSID just for these devices and leaving it hidden w/ a much longer key but placing it on the same vlan as the other guest traffic.  But thought I could eliminate that if there was a way to add an exclusion type setting for the portal.  Any thoughts?

We discussed this a few days ago:

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

Ok thanks.  That's what I figured, just wanted to make sure. Added the extra SSID for now and it's working fine.
