ATO...automatic top off, keeps salinity stable and saves you some time. There are a lot of different ones, including DIY ones. I have the Tunze ismoregulator, it has 2 sensors, one is a failsafe.

I have been striving for a tank controller. I have been researching and watching videos. Just makes everything so Easy and safe. Can have fails Safes for over flows and water on floor sensors. Absolutely my next major purchase. Oh yeah and can control tank from my iPhone when I get it.

A generator. An overnight power outage will most likely kill all the fish and inverts. I don't know how often the power goes out there though.
