This isn't an issue unique to smart locks. The vast majority of traditional key based house locks installed in homes and sold in stores are insecure also. They are extremely easy to defeat using lock picks, etc. Without much skill at all. Most locks are a form of security theater or a deterrence. Unless you purchase high end or commercial grade locks, they aren't actually secure.

Technically you are right. Even I could open a regular lock after half hour trying with an 5USD pick set. The difference is: these smartlocks are expensive. The traditional 20USD lock can be picked trivially. Then a several hundred dollar lock should not be opened by unauthorized person with a cheap smartphone, by pressing a big red "HACK" button.
