Setting Up for the First Time

If you’re setting up Guardian with your Oculus Quest 2, Quest, or Rift S for the first time, follow the on-screen instructions.

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.
Resetting Your Guardian

To reset your Guardian in VR:

  1. Select Settings from the bottom toolbar.
  2. Select Guardian in the left menu.
  3. Click Set Up Guardian.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to reset your Guardian.
Adjusting your Guardian Settings

Once you set up your Guardian, you can make additional adjustments at any time from your Guardian settings-panel option in-VR. The settings you can adjust here include:

  • Headset distance sensitivity: Lowering your distance sensitivity means that you won't be alerted until you're closer to the edge of the guardian boundary
  • Controller distance sensitivity: Lowering your distance sensitivity means that you won't be alerted until you're closer to the edge of the guardian boundary
  • Headset speed sensitivity: Lowering your speed sensitivity means you'll be alerted less when making fast movements near a boundary edge
  • Controller speed sensitivity: Lowering your speed sensitivity means you'll be alerted less when making fast movements near a boundary edge
  • Clear Boundary History: Selecting this option will clear all existing guardian maps from your Oculus Quest.
