Precise environment control is a crucial factor for reliable scanning tunneling microscopy. The Internet of things is a network of devices and appliances that combine measurement and control features with a connectivity framework, thereby introducing the possibility of remotely monitor and control laboratory setups . Here we present an implementation that is based on battery-powered microcontrollers and Wifi connectivity to enable the use of conventional lab equipment in a cloud-based measurement system. Our approach enables precise process monitoring and control of a sub-Kelvin high magnetic field scanning tunneling microscopy laboratory with a small budget.
