A guard booth is a security measure put in place for high security monitoring of a perimeter, manned by a guard. The guards manning the booth are usually responsible for monitoring all incoming and outcoming traffic – sometimes checking identification and doing vehicle searches in order to deem someone approved to gain access to the property.
