More About Wire & Installation Supplies
We carry a variety of wire and other supplies for your wiring needs.
We have a selection of wire for your alarm systems. For your higher power needs, wiring from transformer to AC terminals as well as to your sirens, we carry 18 gauge 2 conductor stranded wire. For your alarm sensors, modules, and keypads we have 22 gauge solid wire in 2 conductor and 4 conductor. We sell these in 25, 50, and 500 foot lengths. We also have 500 foot 18 gauge solid fire wire in 2 conductor and 4 conductor for your smoke and heat detectors. This wire can also be used for lower voltage applications. Finally, we have Cat 5e data cable in 1000 foot length for your camera systems.
In addition to the wire, we also offer a couple of supplies that make the installation of your wire much easier. We have splice connectors that make connecting 2 wires or adding a resistor very simple and easy. The keybus terminals on your alarm panel can fill up quickly with numerous wires, especially the auxiliary terminals. Once you figure in things like keypads, some hardwired zone expanders, an EnvisaLink 4, 4-wire smokes, a wireless receiver, and some motion detectors; those terminals have quite a few wires that need to connect to them. That’s where terminal bus expanders come in. Each one has 2 sides that can accept up to 6 inputs. So with 2 of these you can cut 6 keypads down to 1 wire going into each of the 4 keybus terminals. This quickly cleans up the inside of your alarm system cabinet and greatly decreases the frustration of trying to put too many wires into 1 terminal.
