KEY word here
Their purpose is privacy and security. Make something look inconspicuous and fortify it, and you have something that only someone who is really anxious to crack is going to try.
There is a big difference between providing privacy (and having the cops show up to deal with the nosy paparazzi that climb the berm) and protection against an armed attacking force, where you have to keep them on the outside of the berm or die.

No matter how many cameras they install they CAN'T keep intruders out without enough defenders on the berm to continuously cover it's entire perimeter.
