You get 2 identical keys with the car, each containing the valet key feature. The backup/safety is a feature that allows the car to recognize the fob even if the key's battery is dead. You hold the key up to the key symbol on the steering column, and it recognizes the security sequence even with a dead battery.

Here are some pics that might help explain what I'm going on about...
