Can't read temperature with Homey Pro

Added Aqara door & window contact to HomeyPro.
According to Xiaomi, this contact also has a temperature sensor, see the url below.

Can’t read the temperature with my HomeyPro?

Contact works fine and battery status too.
Please comment on this item.

I’m sorry, but zigbee2mqtt.io has it wrong imho.

These are all Aqara contact sensor’s capabilities (NO temperature capability) :

Xiaomi says:
XiaomiProducts | Xiaomi Aqara Deur en Raam Sensor - XiaomiProducts Nothing about temperature capabilities

No they’re not.

That’s confusing, Robert. So it’s a hidden capability then, and zigbee2mqtt found out about it?
xiaomiproducts.nl doesn’t mention any temperature sensor, so does the Ali store I bought those contact sensors from…

The screenshot I was showing is from deCONZ, not zigbee2mqtt, so it’s not that hidden (the temperature sensor is built into the main MCU of the device, so it’s not very accurate, but it is exposed over Zigbee). I don’t know why the Homey app doesn’t support it.
