Why Your Business Needs a Guard Booth

If you are considering adding a security guard and guard booth to your property, here are some of the many benefits you can expect.

When you own your own business, there are a lot of things to consider. One of the hardest to think about is the possibility of your business or property suffering theft or vandalism. Having a security guard on your property is an excellent way to try to defend against it happening, and a guard booth out front is a strong visual deterrent. If you are considering adding a security guard and guard booth to your property, there are many benefits you can expect.


Having a guard booth is a great way to monitor who comes and goes on your property. You can use the guard booth to house a sign-in system or a check-in system that looks at photo identification and to regulate access control to some or all of your property. Your guard booth may be staffed during the night, only during business hours, or both, depending on your security concerns.


Perimeter security is an important consideration any time of day, but most people associate security guards and the guard booth with providing after-hours security. During those hours, the security presence can give you peace of mind, even when you can’t be on the premises. A security presence can also help your employees feel safer as they leave, especially if they have to leave after dark. Finally, the presence of a security guard can also help to prevent theft and vandalism at any time of day.


Security guards come with varying levels of training and licensure, and of course there is a related difference in cost. If you are in a high-crime area and you are concerned about violence, having a security guard who is trained for these situations, perhaps even an off-duty police officer, might be your best bet. If your concerns are that someone might graffiti your building, you don’t need a guard with quite as much training.
