Association Mode

Got monoprice sensors and concerned a bit about the time it takes for the sensors to trigger actions (ie delay between the trigger->ST hub->cloud->lights.

In the documentation there is something about placing the sensor in “association mode” with the lights which bypass the ST hub but requires the hub to allow association between the sensor and lights when the sensor is first added.

Anyone have any idea how to do this?
Thanks

I’d like to know more about this too.
