Spare key - does it need to have a fob?

I'd like to get a spare key for my 2014, but I don't need to spend $50+ on one with the remote fob when a "regular" key with just the transponder is fine for $10...I just don't know if it will cause problems (like setting off the alarm or something weird like that).

It might be a silly question, but I've had some cars act really weird with aftermarket or non-OE keys.

Honestly, if I thought I could get away with a non-transponder key (so it just unlocks the door, for times when I lock the keys inside and just need to open up the car), I'd do that...but I'm pretty sure that unlocking the door without a transponder would set off the alarm.

Thoughts? Also, how many keys can we program to a car? Four?
