Stop notifications on Assistant devices (home hub, home mini)

Is there a way to decide which Google Assistant devices get notified of the doorbell getting rung? Currently all the Google Assistant devices (Home Hub, Mini, and Wifi) in the house go off. It's a cacophony of out of sync voices all talking over each other. I also don't want any of the devices in bedrooms to go off, just common areas. I've looked through the settings and I can't find anything, but maybe I'm just missing it. 

Also, the category for making this post is to narrow. This isn't an issue specific to Android, iOS, or Web Browser.

Currently we get "Visitor announcements" on all Nest Hubs, Nest Minis, and Nest speakers unless one of them is set to "Do not disturb":

I appreciate the answer. That's somewhat helpful, as some of them can definitely just be set to do not disturb. Others I could probably get better functionality by setting up do not disturb during certain hours, which I think is possible to configure automatically. That would at least stop it from going off when people would be sleeping.

Feedback for Google - The more I mess around with this product, the less impressed I am. It's not really smart at all. It has some interesting integrations, but it doesn't offer much in the way of useful functionality or customization. I can see myself moving to a different camera provider in the future, if there isn't improvement.
