Types of Car Keys


1. Mechanical Cut Keys
Mechanical cut keys are the more traditional key. They are easily duplicated. Mechanical cut keys are prevalent in older car models (2000 or older).

2. Laser Cut Keys
Laser cut keys come standard with many of the new cars manufactured today. They are considered a safer key. Laser cut keys require advanced software and hardware and require specialized training for operation.

3. Transponder Keys
Laser cut keys with a chip that interface with the cars computer. When the car key is turned in the ignition the car sends a message to the key, and the car sends a message back.

4. Remote Keys (FOBs)
Remote keys work with a small radio transmitter. The transmitter has a memory that holds a 40 bit code and a function code. When you push the button it tells the car to unlock your door or trunk.
