2013 dodge bighorn 1500 alarm info needed

I picked up a used 1 owner 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 Big Horn. With remote start/moon roof/power folding mirrors/Alpine Radio/Backup camera/ truck in great condition.
Only problem is no alarm system activated in the truck. There is no red flashing light on dash showing the alarm is on when locking with the FOB.

So I buy an OBD reader and software to read all the options in the truck and lo and behold the BCM log showed the alarm present but not set.
So I programed to set the alarm in the BCM and now the alarm works and there is a red light on dash that flashes showing it armed and when I open doors horn and lights sound and flash.

The info I need is, is or has anyone added a siren with motion sensing to the factory alarm.
It would have to be wired so when truck is started the horn is in circuit and siren out of circuit> and when truck is shut off either the siren or horn is in circuit, or just have the siren and no horn.

The alarm that is factory actually has to have someone open a door for it to go off. So a window can be broken someone climb in and do what they want and then climb back out not setting off the factory alarm.

Was hoping something could be added to the factory alarm.
