Question Any Clue What This Is?

I found this (see pic) in a closet of a Condo built in late 1999 here in Tamarac Florida.

Serious answers only please!

The only thing that makes sense, to me, to hide away like that would be a security system alarm horn. In a condo there may be no attic space to squirrel it away. Just a guess though, Harvey. I couldn't find anything that looked like it online.

Is that the return air chamber? Could be an air freshener. A lot of people around here put them in there.

It is attached by a bracket. It is a fire sprinkler

I was wondering if it was something like a zoolite canister, to keep mustiness out of a closet.

Good to hear from you again, Harvey; I'll be in your backyard next week!

Thanks!

I don't know what it is, but if you look closely, there is a conduit strap nailed to the wall just below the perforated cap. This is the top of something that goes down.
