Warning System for Server Failure

Sometimes, web sites go down. Our employees and clients are pretty good at noticing downtime, messaging me, and then I open a ticket with the hosting company or programmer and get it resolved. I am looking for some kind of downtime warning system.

Ideally there would be a giant magical red button, when pressed by an employee at the office, it would light up a giant spinning police siren at my home and sound a loud noise to bring me away from everything and signal the urgency of the matter. Currently I rely on texts, e-mails, or instant messaging, but that does not really help if my phone is on silent and I am sleeping at home. A 2 part system that would plug into each user's USB port would be ideal, but looking for some type of alarm system to warn me about web site downtime.
