Transponder or Chip Keys
These keys were introduced in the late ‘80s and ‘90s to reduce the amount of theft among vehicles. Transponder keys or chips keys have a chip within the head of the key, which talks to the receiver in the car. Once the signal is detected, the ignition can be turned by the key.
Remote Head Keys
Remote head keys combine transponder keys with fobs. Fobs are typically paired with transponder keys and feature buttons for the door locks and a panic button. The remote head key has these buttons in the head of the key along with the chip.
Switchblade keys are similar to remote head keys in that they combine fobs with transponder keys. However, the blade of the key folds into the head like a switchblade. This makes the head of the key more like a fob rather than a standard key.
Smart keys are a recent development in car keys and operate similarly to transponder keys. The vehicle will have several antennas within it to detect the key. Once the key is close enough, the car doors will unlock, and the car can be started.
