Is there any way to make HomeKit interrupt the selected automations to indifference? Do you like Nest Home and Away modes?

Is there any way to make HomeKit interrupt the selected automations to indifference? Do you like Nest Home and Away modes?

I’m curious if there is a “Wait” feature in HomeKit that would suspend the selected automations from running and take precedence. For example, a “Travel Mode” that would prevent my selected daily automations from running while I’m out of town / home. When I return, I cancel the “Wait” function, allowing the selected automations to run regularly. Basically, a Home and Away option that overwrites the selected automations. This would be similar to the Nest thermostat, where you have a regular program, but when you are in travel mode, it suspends that program until you enter Home mode. I hope this is not a stupid question, because I looked everywhere for an option and it seems to me a fairly correct functionality …? Thank you in advance!
