MERGED QUESTION
Question from jackkiu158 : "HTC Vive Motion"

After choosing your play area you should also find the proper way to place your boxes.
• Base stations should be mounted on your wall, the required height is 2 meters ( 6 ½ feet) and they should be in opposite corners for best tracking.
• Secure the base stations on the mounted positions, screw them just enough to be stable and oriented.
• The recommendations is to mount them on the wall because of the impact vibrations have on the tracking, but if you don't have the conditions for placing them on wall you still have other ways to manage this. You can for example attach them to some of your bookshelves.
• After securing them well, angle the base stations 35-40 degrees down. The base stations should point to your play area. Make sure the base stations can have clear field of view on each other.
