Arming Alarm from Smart Lock PIN Pad

Couldn't find a search for the forum, so apologies if this has already been answered. I have the smart lock installed and set to disarm the system and unlock the door for a guest code. Is there a way to have the smart lock PIN pad arm the system in away mode and lock the door while leaving for a guest? I know the guest can hit "away" on the system key pad before leaving and then lock the door from the smart lock PIN pad (I also have it set to autolock after 1 minute), but I wanted to see if there was a way for the guest to do everything from the smart lock PIN pad.

Thanks for the help.

I believe that all you can do is disarm the alarm using the lock PIN pad.  I don't think that there's a way to arm the alarm.

I don't believe this is possible, and with good reason (you might sometimes want to lock the door without arming the system).  Also, they'd have to enter their PIN to lock the door, which would be more key presses than "Away" on the keypad + "Lock" on for the door.  As with anything like this, it's a bit of a training issue, but I think the current options make sense.
