Magic Message Mirror home security system
While looking more like something that should be hanging in the Haunted House in Disneyland, this portrait is actually a new home security device. Really. When wired into your existing home security system, it appears to be a mirror until its is triggered by an event (for instance, someone walking in front of the beam). Then, the scary apparition appears a la Snow White, yelling one of the phrases you've recorded. I recommend "GET OUT!"
Here's what the wacky team of theme park attraction and feature film special effects professionals say about their invention:
The patented “Magic Message Mirror” looks and functions like a decorative wall mirror, but when your home automation/security system senses a change in your environment, “Basil of the Mirror” (a somewhat pompous English Butler personality) magically appears and verbally provides real-time information. The M30P will also theatrically reveal an integrated live camera feed to show the area of interest, if you have cameras incorporated into your home security system, or decide to add them when you install the M30P.
