Change arming status without disarming

Is there any way to change the arming status or enable a scene without disarming first? Right now we are required to disarm before we can enable a scene. We also have to disarm just to change from arm stay to arm away. Just checking to see if there is any way to not have to disarm first? Thanks!

Correct, you cannot go between arming modes on the panel without disarming. Scenes can be triggered from the app or as widgets on the phone home screen.
