Are there a pair in each room, directly across from each other? Possible room divider?

The suspense is killing me. Did you ever find out what it was?

If not, I see two flat-head screws. You could undo them and see whats back there... Take a photo if you do.

I vaguely remember seeing similar outlets in a 70's house I inspected in the midwest some years back. The owner told me it was for a motion-detection system he had previously installed, but later abandoned because it was always giving him false readings (and costing him money each time the cops came running, looking for bad guys that didn't exist).

Sorry, I haven't been on line lately. She has not had a chance to look any further, I think the sale might not go thru. Thank you very much for the help though. I guess I may never know.
