Naturally, when positioning security staff on your property, it’s also important to take steps to be sure that staff can be in communication with one another and are protected from the elements. Installing a guard shack can help make that process easier. Depending on the nature of your facility, you might even find it beneficial to install more than one guard building. Given the latest advances in technology, it’s possible to ensure that all of your security buildings are connected—from a communications point of view--to make certain you always know what is going on.
