Hi,
I am installing Surveillance cameras at a house I park my car... I was thinking it would be great if as I saw someone approaching my car I could have a loud PA type of speaker that I could yell "Hey! Get away from my car!!"

I am usually out of town so I would be doing this from long distance....

Any ideas?

Thank you,
Bill

Some cameras do support audio - often in both directions - additional hardware (speaker, amp, microphone, etc) is typically required.

For example:

That one is not a cheap camera but it works very well.

There are many others.

Why, so you could watch him flip you off afterward?
