Amazon Show as a security camera

The Show already has a feature to wake up when it detects motion or sound, so it seems like a pretty simple step to enable it as a security camera. You could simply set the time for which you are leaving (Bonus: say "Alexa, I'm leaving") and it will notify you via the Alexa phone app if it is waken up and can take a picture of whatever made it wake up.

If there were access to the Show's camera for developers, I definitely would take a crack at it myself. It already will automatically upload photos it takes to prime photos and you can set prime photos to notify you if there is an upload, so the last step would be to simply activate the camera and take a picture!
