Android and iOS Macro App Recommendation

With Wink's move to a subscription model my Canary Alarm doesn't integrate any longer with the rest of my smarthome. Until the change, the alarm could be put into Away mode by pressing a smart button. Now, I have to use Canary app to do it.

What I'd like to do is press a button on my lock screen and have it open the Canary app, choose Away mode, and then close the app. To go back to home mode, it would do the same but choose Home mode instead.

I took a look at MacroDroid and Automate in Android. I can open the Canary app from the lock screen but I don't know how to select the Away button in the app. i could define where the Away mode button is on the screen but I don't know exactly how to point to that area in the app.

Anyone have any macro suggestions for iOS or Android where I can do that?
