a professional building with a main entrance often provides an excellent
fixed post in the lobby to screen people, credentials, and packages prior

post for the public to easily locate assistance and make inquiries can
be very beneficial. Fixed posts often serve as communication hubs, and
can also be used for surveillance video monitoring.
