Chip Key

A chip key is similar to your standard one in that grooves line it. However, these cuts are actually made by a machine that is different from the average key-cutting one. The machine uses an advanced laser to insert transponder chips along the grooves of the key.

Chip keys can often be told from the standard one because they are thicker and have less grooves. However, the major difference is what is hidden in the key, invisible to the untrained eye.

Added Security

Even if a thief were to get into your vehicle, the chips in the key communicate with the computer of the car once the key is in the ignition. The car’s computer then can tell if the original key has been inserted. It must detect via radio signals the correct transponder chip in order for the car to start. Only licensed dealers and professionals can program the transponder chip to your car.

In other words, a chip key is able to ensure extra strong security. They are more difficult to duplicate since a laser must make the grooves. Also, the lock is harder to pick, providing an initial level of safety. In addition, the embedded transponder chips must be programmed in order for the engine to start.

This extra level boosts your car’s security and ensures that nobody will ever be able to steal your vehicle. An auto Locksmith in Delray Beach can help you install it in your car.
