    Default Mystery Shower Alert Device

    Can anyone identify this "mystery alert shower device"? Ran across this yesterday inspecting a 4,200 SF vacant home that supposedly housed a group of drug dealers. This unit is on the wall of the master shower and has a alert type light in the center with 3 9V batteries. If I'd taken it off the wall I could tell you more about the wiring, if any, going to the unit. I could not identify any other "trip" or device that would be connected to this; the doorbell did not trigger it. No buttons on it. Any ideas? I told the buyer I did not have a clue. This was definitely a "party house" with lots of fixtures missing no no obvious grow ops rooms.

    No, although I suspect its a wireless doorbell alert/flasher (such as used by hearing imparied) or a wireless alarm signal and/or flasher (such as tied into a motion sensor elsewhere on the property). However, those don't look like 9V batteries (rectangular, both contacts on one end) - but three each, 1.5V cylindrical (contacts one on either end) AA batteries.

    Of course, of course, thank you, the batteries are indeed AA type.

    I've been yelled at plenty by the misses for turning on the lights before door was fully closed

    Its for those who have to wake up early and get dressed without turning on the lights and waking up their partner.

    Better than dressing in the dark I quess.
