When connecting Bluetooth devices a personal identification number (PIN) code may be used.  This PIN code is used to allow secure pairing.  If one of the devices being paired requires a PIN code then both devices must be able to confirm the PIN.  Without the PIN, the pairing of the Bluetooth devices is not possible.
