House prewire - wire identification help

Just purchased a new construction home with a ton of prewiring. All wires go into 1 central closet.

It appears:
  • White wires were used for cable wires
  • White wires for cat5e
  • White wires for speakers
  • Purple wires for security prewire
AND I have 1 lone green wire that I can't figure out what it's for. It's labeled "AUDIO KP" and is a Cat6 type cable. Any ideas what that means???

We'd be be just guessing. It might be easier to look around to find where it goes.

Possibly to the demarc block where the phone service enters the house.
Possibly to a location for a wall control..... like a key pad.

On edit:
You mentioned central closet. Is it big enough to contain your equipment ?
