Why is there a blue grid in my Rift headset?

Note: This article applies only to Oculus Rift headsets.

If you see a blue grid in the Rift headset, the Guardian system is on. The Guardian system allows the user to define the training area with boundaries in the headset to indicate when the user gets close to the end of the area. This feature is not used with Strivr training and should be disabled.

To turn off the Guardian system:

  1. Open the Oculus app from the icon on the desktop of your Strivr laptop.

  2. Select Devices from the sidebar on the left.

  3. Select the device with a green checkmark next to the Oculus Rift and Touch option.

  4. You will be taken to the Settings menu for the headset.

  5. Scroll down and select Guardian.

  6. On the Set Your Boundaries screen, select Skip.

  7. You will see a WARNING screen. Select Acknowledge & Skip Set Up. The Guardian system is now off.
