Device installation


Glad to be part of this community.

I'm looking for a solution that suits my lab environment and came across with this solution.


I have read the steps for installation but there are few questions that I cannot find the answer:

When installing a device for the first time, the device MUST be powered ON to finalize the site creation?

What about the further installation of a second device?

In summary, can a device be added to a site, configured and connected to internet in another time?


Thank you very much 🙂 for your comments

Re: Device installation

Hey @JoseM21 !


When installing for the first time you can add the device in the Meraki GO app and make all the configuration changes you need within the app prior to having the device actually powered on and connected to internet. Once the device is connected to internet and the cloud, the device will pull in the configurations and apply them. Hope this provides clarity!
