Default Outdoor security light with indoor audio alert

Want to set up a motion sensor with flood lights to protect my classic sitting right outside in the driveway. Did a search, easy-to-install security lights are easy to find, but none have an audio alarm that will go off inside the house, anyone know where I can find something like that?

Found this....but its not really what I need

Never used x10, anybody here used their stuff? And their audio alarms are a pleasant chime, I want more of an alarm clock notification.

Why do I want an audio feature you ask? Well, Ive been hit twice in the four years Ive lived here, first time they took my dust cover, and couple years later they pried my cd player out of the dash. Both times it was my fault, as neither the cheap cover, nor the older radio were locked up at the time. Well, got a nice waterproof (the other wasnt) cover with a cable lock, and Im going to install personal alarms with lanyards under the truck in case they decide to comeback one night with a cable cutter and cut the cable. Until I get the door locks working, the hood locked, and accept that I will never be able to secure the snap-on tonnue cover over the bed, Id like to install a motion sensor security light in an existing light fixture, and have an audio alarm go off inside the house to inform me that the light has been triggered!

I had an x10 hooked up at my apartment door a couple of years ago it did ok, wireless signal was good and it plugged in via the adapter to the porch light just removed the bulb and inserted an electrical plug I didnt mess with the motion sensor but the camera was adequate.....

If a camera is not essential, they have remote sensors that transmit a signal to turn on a light at another location.
Let's say you have a light on your back porch, but the sensor at a side gate near the front of house.
I suppose you could have an audio alarm, etc. plugged into the same circuit as the light.

x10 is all I could find. $100 package included two dual light spot lights (motion sensor), a chime module, a socket rocket for remote controlling a light, a appliance module for remote control of an appliance, and two remotes (and I put all but the second spotlight to use, use it all every day). Happy, but the motion sensors do have limited range, and vertical adjustment of the lights and motion sensor is limited. Still thought it was a great value, and works good.
