Motion sensor lighting covering a driveway.

When something trips the motion sensor (MS) and the light turns on, I have no way of knowing someone is in the driveway. My question is can I use the light MS to set off a chime located in the building where I normally am to alert me. Or do I have to buy an entire driveway annunciator kit?

They have totally seperate, a wireless (or wired) battery operated motion chime. Receiver/chime can go in the "room" and the transmitter/motion sensor can be mounted right next to the light so when the light is activated, they both activate at the same time. Look in HomeDepot, Walmart, Target, Lowe's. They are security items.
