Installing Base Station 1.0
Before installing the base stations, decide first whether you want to set up a room-scale or seated/standing-only play area. See Planning your play area.
Important: During unboxing, remove the thin film that covers the front panel of the base stations.
Mount the base stations diagonally at opposite corners of your space.
For details on how to use the mounting kit, see Using the mounting kit to install Base Station 1.0.
You can also use tripods, light stands, or cargo poles when mounting the base stations, or even place it on stable book cases. Just avoid using unstable mounting solutions or surfaces that are prone to vibration.
- Adjust the base stations so that the front panels are facing toward the center of the play area.
- Attach the power cables to the base stations, and then plug them each into a power outlet to turn them on. The status lights should be green.
Connect the base stations and set the channels.
Note: For details on how to get the sync cable, contact customer care.
Without the sync cable Press the Channel buttons at the back of the base stations so that one base station is set to channel “b”, while the other is set to channel “c”. With the sync cable (optional for added reliability)
Press the Channel buttons at the back of the base stations so that one base station is set to channel “A”, while the other is set to channel “b”.
Important: Once turned on, do not move or adjust the angles of the base stations as it could disrupt the tracking process. Otherwise, you will need to set up the play area again.
