Smart locks do not work like your standard deadbolts. They do not have a series of pins and springs to be picked. Instead, they have two cylinders, one within the other, and rely on a series of springs and wafers which when aligned properly allow the cylinders to turn. Due to the fact that there are no pins and springs inside of these cylinders, it means that there is nothing for the locksmith to pick.
Fortunately, there are other tools which the locksmith can use to gain entry into your home even if you have a smart lock. One method the locksmith may be able to use would be to drill the lock off of the door. It is important not to just drill the lock in random places.
You may end up doing damage to the latch and ultimately make it extremely hard to remove the latch or unlock the door. One place to drill would be where the bolts are. The deadbolt will then fall off of the door and you could take a flathead screwdriver to use as a tailpiece and unlock the latch.
