Add new device offsite

Anyone here who knows if it's possible to add a new device to an existing site without being connected to the site?
Example: A customer wants to extend their existing site. I prepare the device from my own office, ship it to the customer who can just power it up and start using it.

@TorToret Since you have a site up and running you could ship the AP out and they could plug it in and it would auto-join the current cluster and get its configuration. They would still need to go through the process of adding the device via the wizard.

Thanks @GThiesen 

That's what I thought, but not hoped for
But I can run the wizard from a remote site when the device has joined the cluster. Right?

@TorToret  Have the AP powered on for a little while then start the add new device wizard and when it see it and you add it you should be good to go.
