You never know when you may need to add a new hardwired sensor or a new wired accessory. And when you add the new accessory, you will want some wire around.
The 2-conductor portion of the name identifies that there are are two smaller inner wires inside the larger cable. This is ideal for sensors and devices that require a 2-wire connection. Keep in mind that some sensors may require a 4-wire connection. For those devices, you will most likely want to use an 18-gauge, 4-conductor wire instead. This cabling will have four inner wires instead of the two inner wires found with 18-2. Some users may want to keep both types of hand.
Alarm Grid offers stranded cabling, which is easy for DIY users to work with. Unlike solid core cabling, stranded cabling can be cut and spliced without being easily damaged. This is perfect for completing self-installs when you want to use wire that is simple and easy to work with. At 18-gauge, this is the recommended wire thickness for setting up your alarm system. You can keep it around and use it for nearly any hardwired security application.
