Read/write property of thermostat, boolean.

If true, turnoff()/restore() and HVAC switch in the user interface will set thermostat to off mode/heat-cool mode, respectively, instead of away mode/home mode. This means the thermostat will not resume HVAC by itself if it detects motion. This is useful in conjunction with fanOn because while you cannot set fanOn=true while in away mode for Nest thermostat, you can do so in off-mode.

If false, turnoff()/restore() and HAVC switch in the user interface sets away/home mode.
