2 DIY electronics I plan on building

Last night, power went out and when it came back on the skimmer over flowed back into the tank. I do plan on getting a power supply but couldn't I but the DIY ATO from bulk reef supply and hook it up to the skimmer so it doesn't go back on until the water level in the sump is correct? Has anybody done this? Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated.

Also I would like to make a button at the end of the hydor wacemaker so i can have a 10 min feed botton. Im npt sure how i would do this yet. But something like how a timer works on the plug but when you push it , the electricity stops for 10 min. I see they have things for sale online that do the opposite. They will turn the electricity off after a set time period.
