Default Question about verizon 'box' in laundry room, in apartment... (help)...

Hello,
I apologize for posting in the section.. I just can not find another section to post my question...

I am about to move out of my apartment, that has this telephone box (??) in the laundry room. For the past year, many of the times I walk towards it, but only sometimes, it makes a beep. the beep is for sure real. but it might be my imagination that sometimes green lights have either been on or flashing, right now they are off... but maybe they never were on. but for sure, there was a beep. it beeped a lot. Is this a normal telephone box? At my parents house, it is outside, in a smaller (much smaller) metal box thing, that does not at all look electronic. This looks very electronic. I do not have a landline. But this may exist in the case for that somebody chooses to get a land line?
Another thing, I am not sure if that is the only the place the beeping comes from. I am not sure if it also sometimes comes from the light above the entry. But it happens when there is motion, not when I am still. Like when I go from the bedroom to the living room it makes a beep. but only sometimes.
I worry about wiretapping and things like that. What is this box, is this normal in an apartment?

Please if you have any clue, do respond...

Thank you...

Never seen anything like that my self... Can you get clearer pictures of the wording on the thing? Should be something on it somewhere that gives it away. But it really looks like something to do with a security system.

Is there a model number or anything like that behind the parts where it says "consumer accessible" ? Like when you open the door hinge where it says to replace the battery, or the other spot where it says "consumer accessible" ?

Looks like the black font says alarm right there.

Actually, it's a FiOS box.

Most Verizon area homes/apartments have some form of box from them whether it be outside or inside from previous customers. They shut the service off instead of taking the equipment for future setup.
