I want to put my skimmer on a timer so I've called Port 2 as standard lights but it didn't work.

I had the same code (or similar) previous, and it worked fine. Can someone check the code and let me know where I've missed something? Thanks!

Code: Select all
#include <ReefAngel_Features.h>
#include <Globals.h>
#include <RA_Wifi.h>
#include <Wire.h>
#include <OneWire.h>
#include <Time.h>
#include <DS1307RTC.h>
#include <InternalEEPROM.h>
#include <RA_NokiaLCD.h>
#include <RA_ATO.h>
#include <RA_Joystick.h>
#include <LED.h>
#include <RA_TempSensor.h>
#include <Relay.h>
#include <RA_PWM.h>
#include <Timer.h>
#include <Memory.h>
#include <InternalEEPROM.h>
#include <RA_Colors.h>
#include <RA_CustomColors.h>
#include <Salinity.h>
#include <RF.h>
#include <IO.h>
#include <ORP.h>
#include <AI.h>
#include <PH.h>
#include <WaterLevel.h>
#include <Humidity.h>
#include <DCPump.h>
#include <PAR.h>
#include <ReefAngel.h>

////// Place global variable code below here

////// Place global variable code above here

void setup()
    // This must be the first line
    ReefAngel.Init();  //Initialize controller
    ReefAngel.Use2014Screen();  // Let's use 2014 Screen
    ReefAngel.AddSalinityExpansion();  // Salinity Expansion Module
    // Ports toggled in Feeding Mode
    ReefAngel.FeedingModePorts = Port1Bit | Port2Bit | Port5Bit;
    // Ports toggled in Water Change Mode
    ReefAngel.WaterChangePorts = Port1Bit | Port2Bit | Port3Bit | Port4Bit | Port5Bit | Port8Bit;
    // Ports toggled when Lights On / Off menu entry selected
    ReefAngel.LightsOnPorts = 0;
    // Ports turned off when Overheat temperature exceeded
    ReefAngel.OverheatShutoffPorts = Port2Bit | Port8Bit;
    // Use T1 probe as temperature and overheat functions
    ReefAngel.TempProbe = T1_PROBE;
    ReefAngel.OverheatProbe = T1_PROBE;
    // Salinity Temp Compensation

    // Ports that are always on
    ReefAngel.Relay.On( Port3 );
    ReefAngel.Relay.On( Port4 );
    ReefAngel.Relay.On( Port5 );
    ReefAngel.Relay.On( Port8 );

    ////// Place additional initialization code below here
        ReefAngel.CustomLabels[0]="ATO Pump";
        ReefAngel.CustomLabels[2]="MP10 Left";
        ReefAngel.CustomLabels[3]="MP 10 Right";
        ReefAngel.CustomLabels[4]="Return Pump";
        ReefAngel.CustomLabels[5]="Doser Alk";

    ////// Place additional initialization code above here

void loop()
    ReefAngel.SingleATOLow( Port1 );
    ReefAngel.StandardLights( Port2 ); // putting skimmer on timer
    ReefAngel.Relay.DelayedOn(Port2 );
    ReefAngel.Relay.DelayedOn(Port3 );
    ReefAngel.Relay.DelayedOn(Port4 );
    ReefAngel.DosingPumpRepeat1( Port6 )
    ////// Place your custom code below here
     //DoserAlk Schedule
              ;if ((hour() > 10) && (hour() < 22)) { // Between 10am and 10pm we will disable Port 6
     // First 10 minutes after WC disable ATO for port 1
          static time_t wcTimer;
          if (ReefAngel.DisplayedMenu == WATERCHANGE_MODE) wcTimer=now();
          if (now()-wcTimer > 0 && now()-wcTimer < 600) {
          else {ReefAngel.SingleATOLow (Port1 );
    ////// Place your custom code above here

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

    ReefAngel.Relay.DelayedOn(Port2 );

You have port2 on two fundtions.
Delete or comment the second line

Thanks Roberto! I realized that was the issue as well. Appreciate the reply.
