What wire is this?

Not sure what wire this is (see attached). It is near the closet near the main door. I don’t know where this leads to.

It can either be the doorbell wire or security system motion detector wire. They typically lead to the breaker panel area.

If it's 4 thin wires inside its alarm wire. If it's 2 thicker wires then its doorbell wire.

Could also be old telephone wire, but given the location alarm or doorbell wire is more likely.

Thank you for the responses. It does appear to be alarm wires. The wire appears similar to the ones found in the windows and doors.
