Can't hear the base station (I am not hard of hearing)

I can not hear my base station which on the first floor in the front of my house from my bedroom which is on the second floor in the rear of my house.  I have the volume at max any suggestions?

At the risk of being Cpt. Obvious, move the base closer to your bedroom.

Knock a big hole in the floor so you can hear it better? Might be easier to just move it closer to the bedroom but no too far away from front of house.

Set up a baby monitor system.  Or if you have the skills, tap into the speaker output and hardwire or set up transmitter to remote speakers.

Hi all,

For the All-New SimpliSafe System a possible solution for this may be to add an Extra Siren to your system. In addition to the Siren blaring during an alarm, the Extra Siren can also mimic the Door Chimes and Entry/Exit delay beeps that your keypad makes. You can head over to www.simplisafe.com/alarm-sensors to get any additional pieces of equipment for your system.

The first thing that comes to my mind when I start thinking about the health of my child is organic baby products. As you know, newborns spend up to 17 hours a day in a dream. Therefore, you must be sure that while the child has fabulous dreams, his delicate skin does not absorb any toxic substances. That is why I am sure that you need to use only eco-friendly products for children. What shops do you use? Can someone recommend Natemia.com? Thanks for your answers.

So I'm considering a mod to directly channel the base speaker to a child monitor station and place the monitor in my bedroom. The sirens are anemic for annunciation and there is no voice announcement.  If SimpliSafe had designed this correctly, each remote would be a repeater for the base.
