Override of mode settings for Away mode

Dear Ring Developers,
Please consider adding functionality of an exception in mode schedules for Away mode.

It would be a great benefit for users who would like to use mode schedules for disarmed and home, however, when we set alarm to Away want the reassurance that when in Away mode can only be disarmed by actively doing so with in app or key pad- thus knowing your property is secured as intended.

Otherwise home and Away mode are exactly the same - it’s only by default that Home mode only monitors contact sensors and not the motion sensors, one could change these modes to operate under the exact same settings, so other than their name they are the same thing.

The Benefit of developing an exception of mode scheduling for Away mode - is this would provide additional functionality/ genuine functionality for Away mode and point of difference from Home mode.
It makes sense, and hopefully is a simple code: function to implement that will improve useability for all, with minor update to manual and instructions explaining Away mode must be manually disarmed/ operates outside of mode scheduling.

Hoping the community can support this suggestion would be great to see if can/ Ring.com interested in developing this functionality in the app and Ring alarm.
