Most of the larger security system providers have add-on capability for this - either lights (color coded or flashing) or vibrotactile (vibrator alert), and the more advanced wireless systems can also send a text message alert to your cell phone. I know from prior personal research for family members that ADT and Brinks Home Security have these sorts of capability, I am sure many more do too.

If you Google "security systems for the deaf" you can find numerous ads and articles on such systems, and I have put a link in Sources, below, to an article from Gallaudet University on the subject that also lists references and sources. I strongly suspect, if you are a member (to have access to the articles) that the AARP probably has info also.

If you are eligible for hearing medical support from Medicare, the VA, or your insurance provider they should also be able to help you with this.

Your local agency for the aged and disabled should also be able to help with names of local security companies that can provide this service.

Your local alarm installation company, hearing aid supplier, audiologist, and insurance agent may also be able to give you local references.
