No red wire on motion sensor

If my new motion activated light has only white, black and ground, is there still a way to add another light inline? I want to let this sensor trigger a light further along but I can't figure out how to wire in the next light and not have it always on. The motion sensor (utilitech from lowes) has no red wire for what (I think) would be the switch.

You can not add anything to the switch. It does not have a neutral.
You can add more from the existing light junction box.
