Help me build a home alert system

Hello! I am in the process of consolidating all the sensors at home in an alert center and I would need help to find the right devices for it. I would like it to have a display at least capable of displaying text (so it can be an old-school LCD display), a speaker, and some sort of reset button. I would like to incorporate them into a wall in my house. To illustrate what I mean, I would like to create the following automation when I say a food sensor is triggered: 1. Set the display text to “Flood” 2. Play a sample that says “Beep beep beep, flood!” on repeat When the (physical?) reset button is pressed, I would then create an automation that resets the display text to “Normal” and stops the speaker from playing the sample. Is there a single device that performs the above or are there even the necessary components? I found the following screen, but I’m not sure you can just ask it to display arbitrary text or images: [https://www.fruugo.fi/lcd-wifi-smart-seinavalokytkin-toimii-apple-homekitin-kanssa/p-61233401-123067542?language=en](https://www.fruugo.fi/lcd-wifi-smart-seinavalokytkin-toimii-apple-homekitin-kanssa/p-61233401-123067542?language=en) So if anyone can help me with this, I would be with truly grateful! So tldr; I would need the following devices (or a single device that does all this): A display capable of displaying arbitrary text or images, a speaker capable of looping samples, a built-in (physical?) Button that can be used to reset the condition of the devices mentioned above (I have some Hue drives etc., but I would prefer to get something smaller for that). Thank you very much for your help!
