Setting up Guardian on Oculus for Business

If you're setting up Guardian with your Oculus for Business headset for the first time, follow the instructions that come up in your headset to get started.

Guardian Sizes

Guardian lets you create boundaries in VR that appear when you get too close to the edge of your play area. When setting up Guardian, your play area will show as one of these sizes:

  • Below Minimum: If your play area is below minimum, it doesn't meet the 3 feet by 3 feet (1 meter by 1 meter) requirement to use Guardian.

  • Minimum: You have enough space for the minimum required play area, but some apps may recommend at least 6.5 by 6.5 ft for the best experience.

  • Recommended: You have the recommended play area for Roomscale experiences. This means that your play area meets or exceeds the 6.5 feet by 6.5 feet (2 meters by 2 meters) space needed to set up the Guardian System.
