ACK and Alexa.DoorbellEventSource

Is it possible to get an announcement if someone is pushing a button (doorbell)? What I see is, ACK supports "smart home", but this DoorbellEventSource belongs to "smart home security"?


This is not really clear for me, and if it's not supported, then the ACK is a really "simple" product...

I already have the kit at home, I plan to develop a commercial product. So my question is, how to I submit the DoorbellEventSource to my Echo to see/hear that someone is ringing. This is essential for me, so the question is: ACK can handle it and if yes how?
