You could try one of the Homebridge plugins, e.g. GitHub - ebaauw/homebridge-nb: Homebridge plugin for Nuki Bridge. It also exposes the Opener and door sensor to HomeKit.

If the lock is in Bluetooth range of your home hub (AppleTV, HomePod), you should still be able to use it in Home, even if your iPhone is out of range, similar to HomeKit remote access.
