Question barn fire alarms? ideas

I'm sure this is everyone's concern...:) Fire in your barn!!! Our barn is approximately 500' from the house. It has power and phone. But no way to know that there is a fire in the wee hours of the night. Does anyone know of any remote fire alarms that can sound in the house/call your phone that aren't part of an overall home security system.?

battery operated alarm and a baby monitor working in tandem.
I've heard some audible alarm systems that would wake the dead.

You should just talk to a security system company and see what they can set up. My last barn had a very nice fire alarm system.

Yep, if a specific security company can't find something for you, they may refer you to someone/somewhere that can.

At my parents house they have an alarm through a security company. When it goes off whether smoke or a bird trips the alarm you can hear it for at least 2 miles. It is SUPER loud no way to sleep through it or a neighbor not hear it.

You can set up your own closed circuit monitoring program and just keep the volume up, so you can hear a smoke alarm. I have all of my stuff wired into a security system, so police and fire will be called even if I am not home.

Have you talked to your local fire department? Around here they are always very helpful and willing to help.
