Building Access

Access Control System. 410-412 1st St. SE are equipped with an access control system monitored by Datawatch Systems. Both buildings are secured 24/7. Your employees may gain access to the building and elevators during security hours with their Datawatch access key cards. Full floor Clients may make changes to the hours the elevators are secured to their floor.

Once you are inside the elevator, present your key card to the reader and then press the elevator button to your desired floor until it lights. The elevator will then take you to your floor. When traveling to the main lobby, it is not necessary to use the key card.

Datawatch Access Keys. Datawatch access key cards are issued to you prior to your move-in. It is very important that you keep track of those key cards that are authorized for new employees and revoke any access key cards that are lost. Authorization and/or revocation of key cards are performed by Datawatch Systems. Contact Datawatch Systems at 1.800.899.9872 and speak to the Card Administrator responsible for your building, or you may reach Datawatch by email, You may request a key card listing for your firm at any time. Additional key cards and suite alarm keys may be ordered directly from Datawatch Systems by using the order forms provided or by visiting Datawatch’s website,

Visitors and Special Admits at 412. If you are expecting a visitor during non-business or security hours, you must notify Datawatch by email ( and “CC” the Property Management team. Property management will approve, and from there you have two options:

  1. You can send a visitor list to so Datawatch knows who to allow access to. When the visitor arrives at the building during non-business hours, they should use the special phone outside the lobby doors to gain admittance by pressing the button to ring Datawatch Systems directly. When Datawatch answers, visitors should identify themselves and tell Datawatch who they are visiting. If you have arranged for their admittance, their names will be on an “admit list” and Datawatch will allow them immediate access to the building.
  2. You can send requests to and ask them to leave the front doors unlocked for a specified time frame (i.e. 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM) and/or allow free access to your floor/suite via the elevator.

Daytime Security. Security of your suite is important to us and we ask you for your cooperation in maintaining its integrity. Be mindful of the differences, if any, between the hours of your reception area coverage and the securing and unsecuring of the building front doors. If your reception area is not going to be occupied during times the front door security system is off, we recommend you keep your doors locked. Secondary doors to your space should be kept locked at all times.

Datawatch Systems has additional suite security systems available for a nominal cost if your firm requires additional security. If you need additional daytime security, please contact your property manager and they will be happy to discuss the security options available to you.
