Alarm keypad to lock/unlock Smart Lock?

Has anyone figured out what keys you can hit to lock, and then to unlock, a Smartlock from the main keypad?

We have the lock on a door close to the keypad.  We have the external keypad for the lock on the other side of the door, and it has a Lock button, convenient if you go outside, want to lock the door, but not arm the system.

We often open the door, toss something in the trash, then close the door.  We don't want to arm or disarm the system, and of course we can turn the deadbolt manually.  But it would be great if you could hit a key combination on the main alarm keypad to lock or unlock a Smart Lock.  Of course it would have to be unique to that Smart Lock in case you had two of them.

I don't believe you can control the lock from the keypad but, if you have interactive monitoring, you can do it from your phone in the Dashboard.

Yes, I know that.  But when I'm disarming the system, it would be great to simply hit a key combination on the pad and have the lock unlock.  Picking up my phone, opening the app, hitting the button - easier to simply turn the deadbolt by hand.

You can configure the door lock to automatically lock after your door is closed.  You do need to have an entry sensor on the door.

As far as unlocking from the inside, you have to turn the knob.
