I made my automations also with the Eve app. Here my Hue bulbs become red when someone presses that doorbell button. But it's not possible to select an "off" time in Eve.The Apples HomeKit app does have this "off" function, but it doesn't work here. Not all Hue bulbs shuts themself off.
How did you do that?

If you are in the home app, you see the automation that you created in EVE. There, I can choose that the automation can be deactivated after a certain time. I chose 1 minute...and it works: the scene which is linked to this automation, stops after one minute - lights off and bell sound off.

Again, also very nice: I have an EVE DOOR sensor on the main door. When someone rings the doorbell and I open the door, it triggers the automation to stop the bell sound and the pink lights.

It's nice this solution "kind of" works, but why isn't the button press natively supported in HomeKit???
