The august component allows you to integrate your August devices in Home Assistant. Currently this component supports August Lock and Doorbell.

You will need your August login information (username (either phone# or email), and password) to use this module.

To set it up, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  login_method: phone
  username: "+16041234567"
  password: secret

Configuration Variables
