Gnome alarm

I would like a garden gnome that makes a noise when someone comes in the garden. I seem to remember Landi had some at some point but not anymore. Any ideas?

Re: Gnome alarm

Thank you swisspea, that is something like it. I like the "Polite chime setting" option. I was thinking something that looks a bit less austere & more amusing.

I have just found some on Bakker listed as statues.

Still looking for other ideas though. I can see there are barking dog things too.
