    I'd say tracing the wires would be the next investigative step.

    Before you go romping about trying to trace the wire, if the homeowner or GC superintendent is around, might inquire with them as to its purpose. Or a short walk around looking for the switch and transformer
    Electricians do it until it Hertz!

    It was probably used to shake the table or make noise during seances.

    LOL...my late MIL sat in one of the theatre seats rigged up to shake during the blackout scene of "The Tingler" with Vincent Price. According to the interwebs, the movie distributor rigged certain seats with war surplus aircraft deicer motors, controlled from the projection booth. She was NOT amused...years later, we gave her a copy of the movie and she threw it back at us.

    Tough to say where it goes. Directly below this device is a mechanical space with a finished tongue and groove ceiling. Lots of low voltage in this space for boiler controls and who knows what else. Most of that is coming out in the next month or so.

    Based on the manufacturer, it could be a heat detector.
    In battle, in forest, at the precipice in the mountains,
    On the dark great sea, in the midst of javelins and arrows,
    In sleep, in confusion, in the depths of shame,
    The good deeds a man has done before defend him.
    --Bhagavad-Gita
