Smoke/Fire alarm repeater?

I want a device that I can attach to our front door, and if the building's alarm goes off, a signal would be relayed to an alarm outside our bedroom door. Does this kind of thing exist?

I live in an apartment style condo. When we're asleep in the room furthest from the door, it's difficult to hear the building's fire alarm if we close our bedroom door. We do have a smoke alarm in our unit that works just fine.
However, my wife doesn't want to close the bedroom door when we sleep - ever. This irks me. She's witnessed two house fires (none her fault), so I cannot dismiss her concerns.
I would like to find something to notify us if an alarm goes off in the building, even if our bedroom door is closed, or if I'm wearing earplugs to sleep.
