Inside of the unit, there should be some labels and such. Try there.

And yes, it looks to me like it's a smoke detector remote panel used in larger AC systems like you would find on schools, churches, and commercial buildings.

I have a goose alarm, it was a slap in the face on a crowded elevator, by an irate young girl thought I touched her...OH NEVER MIND.

I've installed many duct smokes and that doesn't look like any I've installed. Could be wrong though any cut sheets?

Could that be the remote test switch on a duct smoke with a reset, for two zones?

Looks like a System Sensor Annunciator.

Like when I used a simplex B key to open a pull station at a fire fighting school just to peek.
Oops I said,,. , but the alarm tech showed up seconds after the fire trucks.
