Wifi access point Security

I have wifi access point in remote location and I know exact SSID and password. Is want to ship wifi device per-configured to connect to that remote WiFi. if I configure another access point with same SSID and password locally and connect my wifi device to it and that ship it to remote location. Will it connect to remote wifi network?
is there any other security besides SSID/password combination?

You have to configure it to same SSID same authentication protocol same password same channel.

Of course, each access point has it's own MAC address, but I don't think that will affect anything, you will connect.

The information needed:
Encryption type: wpa/wpa2 AES/TKIP
Passphrase
MAC address control meaning the device has to be known by the AP to which it will connect.

If you know the sSID, password there is no need to setup one locally, you need only add the network SSID/password/and mode wpa2-psk, etc.(including if the SSID is not broadcast just in case)

What os is running in this system?

the short answer is yes
but as mention above it depending on all configuration information is correct
if you mention the AP in the remote location model and the new AP model
also do you need it as client or Repeater?

It doesn't need to be on the same channel, just the same frequency-band.
