recessed security box for alarm?

I had an alarm installer come out and install an alarm, I had the prefect place for the install, a new closet I just framed out. I told him to put the "brain" of the alarm to the in this closet and no other specific direction thinking this guy was somewhat smart

Well its now installed right in the middle of where my rod and shelf goes, and its got me thinking, this big steel box is UGLY!! I am thinking now it would be nice to have a recesses box in the wall to hold all this crap. Any ideas on an affordable way to make this recesses within a 2x4 stud wall?

I have no prolem messing with the wires, I already rerouted the power wire, I dont even want to tell you how this routed the power wire!!

How wide is the box. You typically have 14 1/2" between studs so if it is that or less, you can easily build it into the wall.
