Also what cause this when i try to upload to my controller?

Could not program the board

My bad, I missed the semi-colon. Here's the code that compiles:
Code: Select all
    if(ReefAngel.LowATO.IsActive()) {
      bitSet(ReefAngel.AlertFlags, ATOTimeOutFlag);

You don't need a void keyword at all. This code gets place inside the loop() function. So I don't know where or how you came across as putting it in. The only thing I can think of is if you put the code in the wrong spot and had it outside of the loop() function. Then arduino is going to treat it as a custom function (which it is not).
It needs to go after the "////// Place your custom code below here" line.
Code: Select all
void loop()
    // WM 1 / Left, 1 minute delay
    ReefAngel.Relay.DelayedOn( Port2, 1 );
    // WM 2 / Right, 1 minute delay
    ReefAngel.Relay.DelayedOn( Port6, 1 );
    ReefAngel.StandardHeater( Port3 );
    // Dimmable lights, ballasts plugged into relay
    ReefAngel.DayLights( Port7 );
    // Non-dimmable lights
    //   plugged into relay port along with fan power supply
    //   comes on 1 hour after daylights and
    //   shuts off 1 hour before daylights
    ////// Place your custom code below here

    if(ReefAngel.LowATO.IsActive()) {
      bitSet(ReefAngel.AlertFlags, ATOTimeOutFlag);

    ////// Place your custom code above here

    // This should always be the last line
    //ReefAngel.Portal( "binder" );

That is what the loop() should look like with the code added to it. This was an old revision of the code that I run on my controller (minus your ATO code).

As for the avrdude timeout, that can be various causes. Best suggestion is to keep the controller unplugged until you are certain you want to upload the code. Then plug it in. For whatever reason, arduino is timing out talking to the controller. It happens from time to time and I don't have a good reason why.
