I have found one , on a German website . www.zwave-shopping.com/de/turschlosser/240-z-wave-turklingel-mit-klingelknopf-weiss.html
I will order the doorbell next week and share the result !
It looks like this bell will work in two ways
1. Send a notification to almond
2. Send notification to a internal bell
This make sence if I am not at home, I can notice a person has press the bell and watch webcam, who is in front of my house :)

They also have a related site for the rest of Europe. Here is the doorbell on that page:

There is the Axxess ZigBee door bell... but I cannot find any site that shows price or allows ordering yet.

For those of you interested in DIY, there is an interesting method on the SmartThings community:

As I said in the other thread, we won't be support any new products from Everspring, as they're refusing to help us with the integration and their sensors are not behaving like everyone elses, so please don't buy that Z-Wave door bell.

I'll see if I can get hold of Axxess, not heard of them before and I've not seen their products on sale. They seem to be doing Control4 stuff only and that's not standard ZigBee.

Not yet, but it's coming, we have samples now.

Aeon labs was doing a doorbell that was supposed to be released with their siren. But the siren is available now but no doorbell and it is no longer listed on their website either. I figure I will eventually just use something like centralite's smart button to control a siren / app notification.

If you have an existing door bell switch you could use a Everspring SM103-1 Door/Window Sensor. It allows you to add external low voltage switches to it.

I would be cautious of the Everspring workaround per Lars' mention that they will not support Everspring products. But there are other things out there. A lot of Fibaro items seem to have additional inputs. Then again you could always DIY the door/window sensor and replace the magnetic switch portion of it with a push button.

I did hesitate to post because it is Everspring, but I have the SM103-1 and using the external switch capability with success on my garage door. Plus the SM103-1 is on the tested sensors list.

Lars suggests avoiding new devices not previously verified by Securifi.

I'm not sure if we have support yet for the screw terminals. Vision/monoprice has those too, didn't work last time I checked. Let me follow up with the software team.

Whatever is in the supported list from everspring works, but will only get additional features if they follow the standard implementation and we add that to something else.

I am happy to confirm that the screw terminals on the SM103-1 have been working good connected to an overhead door switch and has been reading correctly on the Android app.

It looks like different door sensors with terminals work differently.
The SM103-1 clearly works as advertised, but you can't use it as a door sensor at the same time. The same goes for the Fibaro door sensor, which you can wire up to a standard push-button as per their instructions, although, just as with the SM103-1, it'll show open/close as the status change. The Vision/monoprice sensor doesn't work in the same way, as it can still work as a door sensor and have a secondary input via the screw terminals and this isn't supported as yet.
