I was removing all the wall plates from my living room walls prior to painting and found a set of wires I have never seen before. If the wires are useless I would like to patch the hole with plaster to minimize the number of wall plates I have. If they are important then I'll just keep the plate.
Both red plastic pieces are connected to a wire from each of the two 'main' wires. the rest of the wires are not connected to anything. They are housed in a metal box similar to an electrical outlet.
Does anyone know what these are? Are they important?
