Vat(vehicle anti theft) system keys – These keys are equipped with the chip inside the blade itself and when it’s inserted in the ignition computer recognizes if the correct key is inserted and allows the driver to start the car. Pretty complicated system but when it was released in the 1980’s, it stopped thieves from stealing cars, and did its job but you will not find these car key systems in modern cars anymore.
Remote head transponder keys – It’s similar to regular transponder keys but with addition of remote on top of it that also is programmed to the car.
Fob keys – these type of keys has to be inserted into the ignition slot directly, they have to be programmed to the car, but there is also an emergency blade inserted into the key, so in case battery dies customer can open the doors manually, emergency key is also cut upon customer’s request

These key fobs include emergency blades inserted for cases when battery drains to have an access to the vehicle, and they can be cut upon customer’s request.
Flip out keys – same as remote head keys with only the difference that key is used after pressing the button on the fob.
