DSC Keypad arming into stay instead of away

I have a DSC WS9LCDWF9 connected to a Qolsys IQ2. The DSC is on partition 2. However, when I pressed away to arm it, it armed into stay mode. Any ideas?

This would be caused by Auto-Stay. Auto Stay is a feature on panels which reverts local arming of Away mode to Stay if no Exit doors were opened during the exit delay countdown.

You can disable Auto-Stay by navigating to Settings - Advanced Settings - Installation - Security and Arming.
