Shortcut using Aqara door/window sensor broken since iOS 15

Cupertino, October 5, 2021

Within my Home app I have configured an automation to not close my IKEA Fyrtur blinds (when requested) if the window is wide open using an Aqara door/window sensor.

This worked like a charm until I updated all my devices to the latest OS' (iOS 15, iPadOS15, tvOS 15 and HomePodOS 15).

Seems that if you want to use the Aqara door/window sensor in a Shortcut the status is now "Always on" (see image) and therefore the Shortcut assumes my window is open.

Anyone else experiencing this in Homekit with (Aqara) sensors since updating to the latest OS?
