for some reason my ato is not functioning. When i operate it through the app it works fine but it will not come on automatically when my float is low.

Did you test the port and float switch?
Do you have it connected too the correct ato port?

When the float is activated, it shows on the app that it is in the low position. But the pump relay dos not activate.

Everything looks fine.
Can you try the High ATO port?

i switched the port that the float was plugged into and the ATO high indicated red when the float was floated. Is that good enough for a test?

should i try the other float? I cannot see how that would help though i am kind of grasping at straws. I was really hoping you would find a flaw in the code.

Is there another way to write the ATO line to see if maybe a slightly different syntax would work?

So, do you see it turning both red and green as you move the float switches up and down?
I want to make sure both float switches are working and both ports are also working.

since i am grasping at straws, i also noticed that my portal seems to think i have a whole second relay box. I do not have one or any other expansion at this time and i did not include it in my code (i used the wizard to make it). I cannot figure out why it has the 8 extra slots when i bring up the portal though.

Maybe this is a clue???

I tested my other float and it seems to work. I feel a bit silly but i reconfirmed all of my previous statements. I tested the float i am having issues with and it checks out. But the other float actually works

And you are positive that it is not on ato timeout, right?
Try this code:
Code: Select all

it is not in time out, it is working with the other float now
