Unity programs are largely recognized as game development tools. However, it has many functions built in, so it can be applied to various fields as well as game development. Therefore, in this paper, we propose a smart farm environmental control program using Unity and Photon. The proposed program has vast compatibility that is not limited to specific devices, and it is very easy to build network systems for remote control. In addition, the proposed programs were installed on various devices such as pc and smartphones, making it easy to control the smart farm environment system. Through experiments, it was confirmed that data transmission and reception between Windows and Android, other operating system environments, and that smart farm systems were operating normally.
