Add option to disable sensors in Disarmed Mode to prevent battery drain

Currently the Mode setting for a Door / Motion sensor allows for only a Armed or Disarmed setting by Mode for Away or Home , no option to disable them during Disarmed mode. The sensor detects open/close or motion 24/7 and logs it even in Disarmed mode, no way to turn it off/disable it. This causes major battery drain. I have a high usage front door that I do not need monitored when disarmed. My front door sensor is going through lithium batteries x 2, every 6 weeks because it keeps detecting open/close events all day even when Disarmed.
