Look in yellow pages for security [systems].

Call and ask if they would sell you what you need. Or if they know of another security company which would do so, or where they buy their supplies.

Electric supply companies and Home Depot would have the wire.

Bell wire from any hardware store will work. All it is, is #18 to #22 wire. Nothing special about it.
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?
