Can't command Honeywell T6 t-stat to Away mode

My T6 Pro Z-Wave thermostat is set up to control based on occupancy vs. by a schedule. This way there are Away and Home modes on the display screen. Is there any way to command it into Away mode? So far I can only change the setpoints in Home mode. That works but I would rather be able to use the options on the device.

Unfortunately the T6 Pro doesn’t allow you to configure or change away mode remotely. You can use this device handler to enable other advanced features like auto switch over, humidity reporting, deadband sync etc.

After integrating with SmartThings you can disable away mode and instead use SmartApps to change the schedule programming when you hub is in away mode or use motion sensors to control your thermostat with apps like these:
