Recessed door swings open through the recess

One of our exterior doors is recessed, and the frame is 4-5". The door opens in, through that 4-5" frame, so placing the sensor anywhere on the frame would mean the door couldn't open (it hits the sensor). Are there any workarounds? If I put the sensor on the trim of the frame, and the other piece on the door, they would pass each other as the door opened if opened fully. I'm not sure if that's safe enough or if it would work properly.

Get a button magnet from Amazon. Install the button magnet on door frame. Then install the entry sensor on the door.
