Question about 2008 Hyundai Elantra
How can I tell if my key has a security chip in it just by looking at it and if it comes with a factory alarm system?
Your key does not have a "chip" or any other security device in key

My 2008 Elantra GL sedan definitely DOES have chips in the keys. I found out the hard way. In order to make my car key fit into the case I use, I Dremeled all the plastic off the head of the key. Then the car wouldn't start. I ground it and ground it, with and without gas, etc., no joy. Fortunately my wife was in the car. I borrowed her key and the engine started instantly. We went back and forth between keys later in the evening and the answer was always the same: started fine with her key, total no-go with my "trimmed" one.
Now I'm going to fish the plastic chips out of the waste-basket, and see if any of them helps. . .
