exterior sealant

About 12 years ago when they installed my AC where they ran the cable in through the house they applied a sealant. That is all cracked and deteriorated now and I can actually see outside around there. Is that a just a regular silicone sealant they use for that or something special? I notice that the same thing is around the cable and telephone entrance too.

The butyl rubber window caulking works well in cold climate, stays flexible, sticks well to brick. Most installers will use the cheapest acrylic they can find, those do shrink and get crumbly over time. I suppose GE silicone caulk will work good too.

Ok thanks. I guess what would be best then is to remove what is there and just install all new? Shouldn't be to hard.
