Like in a spy film, but less laser-y, this is a way to scan a physical feature on the person who has access. Your smart phone might already have one if you use your finger to unlock it.
While you might not need an actual key to unlock a smart lock, they still might not unlock unless you have a physical item within a small radius of its surroundings. It could be as simple as an electronic card in your wallet or a keychain.

If a lock is tampered with or broken, it can send a signal to your alarm company. Pretty neat!
