Add software patch to allow lock to stay in open position

Looking for an override button to enable “leave lock in the open position” for a temporary amount of time “until manually relocked” perhaps? Not sure all the details but basically When the door is left open and “auto lock” is enabled, this causes a problem because my kids love to slam the door shut with the lock out. I know there is a HARDWARE solution in the new system with a detection of open door but I want a software bypass for my existing system
