Installing SteamVR Base Station 2.0

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.
  • Make sure that the base stations are installed outside the play area and securely set up from being accidentally struck, dropped, or bumped to avoid damage or compromised performance.
  • Remember to peel off the protective film from the front panel after you've mounted the base stations.
  1. Mount the base stations diagonally at opposite corners of your space and near power outlets.

    For details on how to use the mounting kit, see Using the mounting kit.

    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.

  2. Adjust the base stations so that the front panels are facing toward the center of the play area.
  3. Attach the power cables to the base stations, and then plug each of the adapter into a power outlet to turn them on.
    Important: Use only the power cables and adapters that came with your base stations.
    Depending on the variant of your hardware, the status lights should be white or green.
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.
