How do I get the Home app (specifically Mac) to automatically lock the door at a specific time?

Cupertino, October 12, 2019

I have a Mac in my studio that I discovered can control my August smart lock via the Home app (using Bluetooth). I want the lock to automatically lock at a specific time each day. What would be the best way to achieve this? Automation? Shortcuts? I've also never been able to get Automator to work.

Sorry for crossing, but I'm not really sure where it fits best.
