The outlet next to my network panel has "security only" written on it. It's a single plug outlet (125v/15a). I haven't been able to find any information on why it's labeled security only and why it's only a single plug outlet.

I'd like to switch it out with a normal two plug outlet but I'm hesitant to do so without knowing why it's labeled security only. I would really appreciate any feedback on whether it is safe or not to switch the single outlet to a double outlet.

Its intended purpose was probably for the AC transformer for a fire alarm/security panel. A fire alarm panel requires a dedicated circuit so that it won't be shut off when working on other equipment.
