Building a Mercedes sprinter motion detecting van alarm with remote pager

I wanted to protect my home on wheels with a nice alarm system that could page my cell phone when an intruder was detected. After much research and calling various car alarm installers in my area I came to the conclusion that it wasn’t worth the expense, the risk to my van’s wiring, and voided warranty. The commodity car alarm systems like Viper seem stuck in the dark ages and they don’t have a wide range of detection methods.
