Making a Siren Wireless

Hello everyone. I currently have two external sirens hardwired to my Simon XT V2 in my house. This is the siren:

I have it hooked up with this relay:

And with this power supply:

What I would like to do is put another identical siren in my detached garage. But I would need to figure out how to do this wirelessly. Anyone have some ideas on how to accomplish this?

One of the Linear receiver/transmitter sets would probably work:
