What is the August Lock system?

Why does Alcove need to install the August lock system in my property? Do I retain access as a property manager?

The August lock system is a Smart Home security access system that enhances security of our homes. To best ensure roommate safety, our tenants and cleaners do not receive physical keys as we use August Locks (with rare exceptions). All of our access is mobile based. However, owners/property manager will be able to access the home with their original key.
