Would you be able to use these as a cheap and rudimentary alarm system?

You could do that, sure. Just change the python code to play a sound instead of update the spreadsheet. But this probably better for pranks — not a real security system — since Amazon hasn’t actually published the technical details of Dash. It seems to work reliably (with a delay) in my experience, but without specs it’s hard to make guarantees.
