Your Key to Your Cars Security
How many times have we locked ourselves out of our cars or lost your car key only to realize we have no spare key? Have you tried taking your car key to the local hardware store to learn they cannot make one because it is a laser cut key or Smart Key?
What are laser cut or Smart keys?
While many keys have ridges on one side of them, high security keys are flat along the edges with the ridges cut in the middle or along the edge of the key. The majority of these keys have at least one or two long groves, cut on both sides, which run the length of the keys and allow them to work either way when inserted into the ignition. These design changes provide extra security on vehicles by limiting the ability to duplicate the key or bypass the ignition. Newer models of vehicles now include ignition push to start switches as opposed to the standard keyed ignition; these switches operate by sensing the Smart Key is in the proximity of the vehicle so all you have to do is have in on your person. The Smart Key only works within a specific distance of a vehicle in order to unlock and to start the vehicle, which again is a security feature that prevents car thieves being able to start and steal your vehicle when you’re not nearby.
