Mounting Entry Sensor to Overhead garage Door

Does anyone have any suggestions for making a bracket so I can mount an entry sensor to a manually operated overhead garage door? I have a garage behind my house that isn't used often and want to be able to alarm if the overhead door is opened

I did this, and found it not near as complex.  I was able to install the magnet on the top lip of the door, with the sensor mounted on the wall.  I tested placement, and clearance, by using tape to hold the sensor and the magnet in place, and then making adjustments, then I attached both.  I did this on 2 doors, and they both work fine.
