Xiaomi Binding questions, Items sometimes not refreshing, what do I do wrong


I use a Rpi 3 with openhabian 2.1 .

I installed a Xiaomi Gateway, with a few sensors and it was discovered correctly in Paper UI, entered the key from the Xiomi app. Sensors work well in the app.

However if I use the items in a sitemap for my iphone, the values of the door sensors are erratic refreshed, and sometimes not refreshed at all. Sometimes it works well and as soon as I open or close a door it shows. I am a newbie, so please I may have made a very stupid, silly or simple mistake. What puzzles me is the “sometimes” as it sometimes does work. I am still not really sure how that thing and item works with autodiscovery and what needs to be in things.

Right now it is all commented out. So nothing in things.

I initially copied more or less the items, things, and sitemap from the example of the binding desciption.
As I had duplicate errors I commented out the things in the things file. Are you supposed to define them once more in the items file (I have), or can the paperui discovered be used?

I did not use the rules for the door or window contacts so far.
Events do get triggered- it logs correctly in events.log.
