What would be the best tagging for guard booth minibuildings?

I think that building=guard_booth would be the best one for objects constructed
as guard booth.

Such objects are housing guard, usually at entrance to parking lot, industrial complex,
closed private residential complex, military base etc.

Is there better name than "guard_booth"? "guard_shed" was a previous version that I had
but it seems worse.
