I have a 3 story house and my base station is on the main floor, with one floor above and one below. I cannot hear the base station unless I'm on the main floor, how can the system be set to alert me if a door is opened when I'm in the basement or upstairs? I don't carry my phone around me in the house. This feature is a must for a home security system in my opinion. I'm coming from a traditional system of over 11 years and with this system it feels/acts a lot more flimsy and feels less secure if I can't tell what's going on throughout my entire housse when I'm in one area and can't tell what's happening in a different area? Advice? Update from ring? Tweak to the system that I may not have enabled?
You can use Alexa with the Ring Skill to do it. A little clunky to setup routines for seach sensor, but you can have her announce when a sensor is tripped. The new Echo Flex looks like it would be perfect for that use. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07MLY3JKV
Thank you all for your feedback on this! We've seen this feature requested before and I will certainly share the ongoing value in this with the team.
In the meantime, try using Alexa routines through an Alexa enabled device as @perryw recommended. We will keep the Community updated with any future information on this feature, as it is received.
When I think about it, that really is something that the Ring Chime should be able to do. No reason why the Ring Chime should could be a remote siren/speaker for the Alarm.

Good morning all and thank you for the help!
I ended up spending time on my Alexa app, and went through the clunky-ness of setting each sensor to report to at least one alexa if not more on every level of my house which for now does work well but what a process it was! Thank you all for the help/advice!
