Critique This Camera Install: Zip Tied Power Supply

It's easy to spot negatives here like the power supply left dangling by a zip tie:

Why did they do it this way? My guess that the installer could not recess the power supply in the wall or ceiling. At least they could have put it in a surface mount box.

What would you do differently for this customer?
