I;m not sure what you consider "cheap".  I've  used a Sensatronics Model E4,
for which I've written my own daemon software to take a reading and log it
every x minutes.  I've also had a Sensaphone Model 1104 which can
automatically call multiple phone numbers and play a message about
fault conditions.

Each of these were in the $400 to $600 range (with sensors).
