You still use the very same keys that come with the jeep, no key has been replaced. The alarm is a module which is connected to the stock keyless entry system to expand the functions. Once connected, it adds the following
options which you can decide if you activate them or not as long as the required connection is made:
Chirp confirmation - sounds horn when armed
Last door arming - arms when the last door is closed
automatic rearming - automatic rearms if unlock is pressed but a door is not opened within specified seconds
doors lock with last door arming activated
doors lock with auto rearming
ignition controled door lock/unlock - locks the doors when the ignition is turned on and unlock when is turned off
anti-carjacking - when the vehicle is turned on, if a door is opened and the valet switch is not pressed the vehicle will turn off after one minute and sound the alarm. (I don't like this because if you remove the doors it may give you problems)
It has a connector for an optional motion sensor, this is good when you are running topless as the alarm will go off as soon as it detects an object moving inside your jeep. I have to buy this, it cost around 30 bucks on amazon, the alarm shop wanted to charge me 125 for it.
Plus it does all the nice standard things of an alarm when it goes off, sound the siren in different tones, flash the lights, sound the car horn, disable the ignition.
Hope this answers all your questions.
