I use docker HA just FYI, I also have special chars in my PWD for Kevo so I needed quotes around PWD always good practice anyway if quotes are allowed.

There are currently two methods, using the github home-assistant integration or getting the pykevoplus python manually setup. People have been having timeout issues with the integration, which IMO is the preferred method, but you may want to test both.

Read this thread for more info → https://community.home-assistant.io/t/kevo-plus-door-locks-now-working-in-home-assistant/9624

Manual:

I recommend getting pykevoplus setup and configured/tested etc and then setup via HA.

ATM: This didn't work for me, perhaps due to sourcing the vars, but vs fixing, I switched to integration method w/ scan_interval: 300 (5Min). Fingers crossed that fixes it!, 

switch:
  - platform: command_line
    scan_interval: 350
    switches:
      kevo_deadbolt:
        command_on: "python3 /opt/homeassistant/kevo/lock-front.py"
        command_off: "python3 /opt/homeassistant/kevo/unlock-front.py"
        command_state: "python3 /opt/homeassistant/kevo/status-front.py"
        value_template: >
          {% if value == "Locked" %}
            true
          {% elif value == "Unlocked" %}
            false
          {% else %}
          {% endif %}
        friendly_name: Kevo Deadbolt
