Minidome Corner Mount: Why?

This camera is one of four or five new units hung on a local establishment:

Why this camera, hung with this mount, outside?

This quite literally looks like $500+ worth of apparatus hung for $150 worth of camera. Maybe less.

No integrated IR on this minidome. It isn't even one of those inexpensive PT cameras, it is a fixed mindome.

Why hang an institutional-grade corner mount that can support a camera weighing 20X more for such a puny camera?
