Solution 2. Enable PSK and Click-through Splash and setup a Custom Hosted Splash page that authorizes based on MAC address. You should consider SplashAccess.com instead of building it yourself.

Solution 3. Enable PSK and add a firewall rule for the SSID blocking all access. Then use Meraki's policy settings to apply a whitelist policy or apply a Group Policy but just for devices requiring access.

Solutions requiring a RADIUS Server:

Solution 4. Enable PSK and Sign-on with my RADIUS server and configure your RADIUS server to authorizes based on a MAC address. Most RADIUS servers can do this.
