Disable OEM alarm via Unlock before start then re-lock

Audi 2019 Q5

I'm just curious about this process.... The Evo-All does an unlock to disable the oem alarm before starting the vehicle and then re-locks it. Is it possible for you to issue a canbus command that would just turn the alarm off and on vs using the unlock re-lock to do it? Would seem more elegant in terms of programming. Also safer in that the vehicle would never be unlocked in case someone was standing by the vehicle waiting for the unlock to occure.

Unfortunately no, the evo is simulating the manual arming-disarming via the door key cylinder, even with the OEM remote the arming/disarming is synced with the doorlocks.  This hypothetical you present would mean someone standing near your vehicle in the open, in the hopes you remote start the vehicle. which is very unlikely.

From my understanding, the disarm process includes unlocking.
