As well as doorbells that alert you by a flashing light or a very loud ringing bell, there are other multi-alert signal systems that can be used to attract your attention to different sounds in your home.
There are some hearing impaired equipment systems that offer two functions in one, for example, an alarm monitor and weather radio. And an ingenious receiver device that can be programmed to vibrate your bed.

The crucial importance of this kind of hearing impaired equipment cannot be emphasized enough. You can have linked alarms connected to all the other smoke alarms in the building, which ensures that if any one smoke alarm is activated, it triggers all linked alarms.
