The unique affix means a Rare Monster (with a very small chance of a zone-appropriate Unique Monster) is spawned every time the wearer uses a Shrine or Pylon. One can think of it as a variant of Monster Shrine from Diablo II.
This property is useful for Elite farming. Note, however, that the monster will spawn (with its minions!) atop of the hero who activates the mentioned shrine, often instantly having them surrounded by the creatures, with no way of escaping normally. As such, high degree of Toughness, or relocation/protection skills, are highly advised.
Even if one does not plan on wearing the bracers normally, it can be helpful to carry them around in the inventory, briefly equipping them before using a Shrine, and reequipping the more powerful bracers. This strategy will not work in a Greater Rift, due to the restriction of not being able to change equipment. Still, however, Greater Rifts can be completed faster with these bracers, due to summoned Elites counting towards the progress.
Prior to patch 2.1, these bracers even increased the bearer's Movement Speed as well.
