Question Accidently cut 2 conductors in a low voltage security system wire

We opened drywall to do some spray foam insulation, and 2 conductors in a 4 conductor Low voltage security system wire were cut.

How do you repair?

Either splice them or use a couple of pieces of low voltage wires as jumpers to bridge the gap.
Soldering them would be best, but you could use small wire nuts. Low voltage does not have as strict requirements as house power.
