Why I ask about it
Because in Dzogchen highlights the integration
The basis is the presence in all circumstances.

Why therefore,isolation is so important?

Because to activate this mantra you need to recite it constantly without saying anything else. How would you manage that while going out and about in the world (while also keeping the mantra secret)?
Also, Vajra Armour is not Dzogchen (and yet the above could also apply to it).
