Now Install the sensor v2 centrally on your monitor.
Place it on top, or below the monitor, whichever is more level with your head.
If placing the sensor below the monitor, your hands or controls may block line of sight. Consider raising it slightly to avoid this problem.




Try to sit 2-4 ft from the Sensor V2.
Closer than 2ft
(60 cm), tracking will not be possible.
2ft to 4ft
(60cm to 120cm) is the ideal distance.
Sitting from 4-8ft
(120cm to 240cm) will slightly reduce tracking quality.
If you are sitting farther away from the sensor than 4ft
(120 cm)
 select 'exposure preset: Far' in the 'tracker' options.

0 - 60cm
Too close

2-4 ft

You can make multiple profiles using the 'profile' drop down menu on the home page, and assign these profiles to specific games in the 'game detection' if needed.
