What is this?

Saw this under my hood and didn't know what it was for. Can anyone identify it?

Hood switch; if the hood is open, you will get warning light.

It is actually for the alarm. If you open the hood with the alarm set, the alarm will go off.

That car has an alarm. If it was just pre wired that switch wouldn't be there.
