Need help identifying this object in jeep

Just bought a new jeep and this is bolted to the bottom of the driver side area under the steering wheel. It looks to be wired into something else that has a small dial with "min - max" on it. I'm thinking an alarm system, but what is this thing in the first picture. it has no buttons, switches, or anything.

thanks!

Thinking alarm also, dial may be for sensitivity setting?
Check the wires it ties into against the FSM

That relay doesn't look factory either.

I'm thinking glass break sensor for an alarm.

I traced everything over the weekend and it's definitely an installed alarm system. When I started unplugging everything, the jeep would no longer start due to an ignition interlock. I'm guessing the small device in the front is a valet override or something.

Depending on the type of system you have, a lot of the brands use the flashing red light as a valet button.

That looks like a glass sensor (or maybe a shock sensor) as someone else mentioned, and it's attached to the system sensitivity control. Pretty standard stuff.
