What type Low Voltage Wire for T-Stat??

My split system central AC just went in. My installer/friend used an Aprilaire 8600 T-Stat. He's had great luck with those. They make an optional Outdoor temperature sensor (add-on) that I would like to install :

What type of Wire can I use with this as I'll need to splice it to extend the cable back to to the T-Stat.

Thermostat wire is fine. Big box store will have 18/2.

I just installed the Aprilaire 8463 thermostat and quite happy with it. It's very easy to program and user friendly. I used tstat wire for the temp gauge as well.

Good luck

Bell wire is what it is usually called. Go to Lowe's or Home Depot. If not in the electrical aisle, it may be where they keep the thermostats and ducting, etc..
Ren: Now listen, Cadet. I've got a job for you. See this button? Ren: Don't touch it! It's the History Eraser button, you fool! Stimpy: So what'll happen? Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?
