Puppy in Crate Question

We have been using a crate since we brought our GSD home at 7 weeks. He has absolutely no problem sleeping in his crate, especially if we are in bed sleeping beside him . But even now at 9 weeks old when he wakes up and we aren't home to let him out he goes bezerk. Barking, howling, crying jumping on the sides of the crate (We have a webcam on him while we are out) for sometimes an hour+ until he falls back to sleep.
He is never in his crate for more than 3 hours at a time but like clock work, when he wakes from his naps he is one unhappy puppy.
WE are considering getting a 2nd crate to keep in the family room where we spend most of our time when we are home to give him some more crate experience but I don't know if this will even help.

Does anyone else have this problem and does anyone have any suggestions to help make this transition easier?
