I definitely think a siren is a great idea for a new product. But I wonder if this product could kill two birds with one stone and be a loudspeaker as well? Ideally it could do both (And be outdoor-rated.)
I know I could buy an outdoor smart speaker or something, but those are all a lot more expensive than this would need to be, I think. Plus I’d have to switch to a different app if I wanted to talk to someone, so I wouldn’t be able to see the video at the same time. Audio quality doesn’t matter at all for something like this. It just needs to be loud, with enough clarity to distinguish a human voice. Crappy landline phone-ish audio is fine.
I presume that the upcoming outdoor camera will probably have a built-in speaker, as the current indoor cameras have. But frankly, they’re just not very loud. In an outdoor setting, especially, someone 15-20 feet from the camera may not hear it at all, especially if there’s ambient road noise, etc.
Anyway, I hope both of these products come to the market, but they may be able to be the same product.
