    Perhaps if you tell us what kind of motion detector you have... Chances are, it's possible to do either of those things, but if you have a commercial unit that's designed to turn on a light or something like that, it may be a fairly complicated process.

    (Or, it could be a Rube Goldberg process: the motion detector turns on a light, which activates a phototransistor, which starts an oscillator, which moves a servo, which pushes the return key on a keyboard, which sends an email...)

    Thank you very much for your reply. Since I'am doing a senior design, i have to build my own motion detector. I'am building a Crystal -locked ultrasonic motion detector with sensor that detect any movement fron 22 ft. I will add an alarm circuit as well. The principe is, anytime the alerm goes off by detecting a movement i would like to have a message send to my phone, or even better make a call to my phone so i will be alert. I was thinking about how to connect the the all system to my phone, may be using a computer or embedded system.
    Any suggestion is welcome attach is the motion detector design.
    thanks
