Add-on microphones for IP camera system?

I have a few SV3C PoE network cameras around my property being monitored by a separate computer running Milestone xProtect. The cameras don’t have audio and don’t appear to have any inputs or pins to add one. I’d like to add a stand-alone IP microphone in the areas the cameras are at, not necessarily on the cameras themselves. Milestone has support to associate a mic with a camera even if it isn’t on the same stream.

Are there any stand-alone PoE/WiFi network microphones that can put out an RTSP (or equivalent) stream? It seems like something that should be cheap and easy but I’ve had no luck finding one.
