On a WLC 2504 we have a guest WiFi setup. Unsecure SSID is broadcasted and devices are allocated an IP from DHCP.

Is there a way to enable a restriction using only the WLC to limit the time a device is connected. Ideally if a device connects our WLC would disconnect it after 1hr, the user would then need to reconnect if they wanted to continue browsing.

Hi,
you need to tune Session Timeout parameter, into Wlan/Edit.

The Session Timeout is the maximum time for a client session with the WLC. After this time, WLC de−authenticates the client, and the client goes through the whole authentication (re−authentication) process again. This is a part of a security precaution to rotate the encryption keys. If you use  (EAP) method with key management, the rekeying occurs at every regular interval in order to derive a new encryption key. Without key management, this timeout value is the time that wireless clients need to do a full reauthentication. The session timeout is specific to the WLAN. This parameter can be accessed from the WLANs > Edit menu.
I nornally use this with Web Authentication, so that the users have again their welcome displayed web page.

hope this helps
