Why reinvent the wheel?

If all you need is monitoring a single end-point, then just signup to a Pingdom free account. Very reliable monitoring and 20 SMS notifications per month (no caps on email notifications) https://www.pingdom.com/free/

And if you need to monitor more than one system, then go for Pingdom "Starter" for only £6.99/month https://www.pingdom.com/pricing/

IMO that's fairly cheap and avoid yet another system to maintain..
