Can the Homekit Binding read values from Homekit devices


I am using Openhab since a while and had the Homekit binding working for some time. I stopped using it as I was unable at this point in time to read values from Homekit devices (eg. Temperature from an Eve sensor).
I can see several implementations using node red but I haven´t found any working environement with the Homekit Binding. For me this binding is only exposing Openhab to Homekit but not vice versa.

Is this correct or is there a way to get sensor values from Homekit devices to Openhab?

Many thanks
