Polanski will have to wear an electronic bracelet and stay in his chalet
Film director Roman Polanksi has started his house arrest at his Swiss home in the resort of Gstaad.
Polanksi, who is fighting extradition to the US over a 1977 case of unlawful sex with a minor, arrived by limousine at his home.
The film-maker's wife and two children were waiting for him at the chalet in the luxury resort.
Switzerland is expected to decide whether or not to extradite Polanksi within weeks, but he could appeal.
The Swiss authorities confirmed in a statement that Polanksi has been moved to his chalet and placed under house arrest.
"Polanski has undertaken not to leave his house and property at any time," it said.
The film director, who holds both French and Polish citizenship, fled the US in 1978 after pleading guilty to having unlawful sex with an underage girl.
On Thursday, he was moved from a jail near Zurich to an undisclosed location for security reasons. He had been in jail for two months.

The 76-year-old film-maker will be fitted with an electronic bracelet that will activate if he attempts to abscond.
The Swiss Federal Criminal Court granted the Oscar-winning director $4.5m (£2.7m) bail, pending proceedings for his possible extradition to the US.
The director of films such as Rosemary's Baby, Chinatown and The Pianist was arrested after travelling to Zurich on 26 September to pick up a lifetime achievement award.
Polanski was accused of raping a 13-year-old girl after plying her with champagne and a sedative during a modelling shoot in 1977.
He was initially indicted on six counts - including rape by use of drugs, child molesting and sodomy - but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of unlawful sexual intercourse.
Polanski fled the US on the day he was to be sentenced, and has lived in France since then.
