I've lived here for 8 years and just discovered this in the closet... It's plugged in with exposed wires, so I'm nervous.

Any thoughts as to what it could be?

@ericmann No worries man, just don't touch without using a current detector.


Part of your doorbell, most likely. Should be low voltage.

@cmdevans Yeah, turned out to be a doorbell transformer. Was unexpected since it was so far from either the button or the bell itself.
