    Pic 1 Shows a Mistake ( Something was or should have been installed or a hole was drilled by mistake. )

    Pic 2 is a Low Voltage Transformer My Guess is for the Alarm System.

    Looks like a cover plate for round modular phone outlet, with out the outlet inside.
    Sometimes are used by DIY for cable runs.

    The cabinet is to an alarm system. Alarm siren is above the alarm cabinet.
    The tan device with zip tie is likely the transformer (power supply) for the alarm system.
    I think the other device is a doorbell/ buzzer transformer.

    The single hole plate looks like the cover plate for a singe receptacle. I've seen them used for speaker or cat 5 wires before. The white box looks like the alarm speaker.

    My guess/s / final answer is Pic1 = Low volatage cable outlet, ( cable, data, communication ), on the left and a duplex receptacle on the right w/ your tester still in it. Pic 2 = Left is a F/A or security system enclosure and right is a door bell xfmr.

    Rick, Robert and Garry win on #1. It is 5' high up the wall in the living room with a duplex receptacle below. J- box for the TV cable, TV not installed yet.

    Ditto on the alarm box and buzzer.
