Same is the case with electronic locks. In a biometric lock, you don’t need to have any keys, don’t need to have the unlocking card or remember the pin code to open the lock. Just put your finger on the scanner and if you are authorized to unlock that lock, it will be unlocked by scanning your fingerprints.
