Update:
So I ordered couple of those Evolve Relay. I'll probably get a small junction box of some sort and try to fit these relays?

Any ideas on how to get them fixed in some sort of enclosure? Thanks

The wayne dalton can not control the garage door the way you want it to. In order for you to control the garage door via zwave, you will need to use either a modified appliance module or an easier way, the evolve lfm-20 relay module. The relay module would be powered by power of the black, red, and white wires and the two blue wires would tie into the two terminals for the wired remote of the garage door opener. I used an outdoor electrical enclosure for putting the relay in and making for a clean look. I'll try and get pictures of the enclosure.

Thank You so much Garrett.  I went to look for an enclosure at home depot - but not sure which one - I'll be having two relays , one for each garage door - so pictures would be very very helpful.

This has worked really well for me for almost a year.
http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php?topic=4773.msg26131#msg26131

Since that post I have added an HRDS1 (or HM-DW001) connected to a Mercury switch (from an old thermostat) and use this plugin to 'lock' and 'unlock' (close or open) the garage door. http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php?topic=5106.0

My only issue is that my HRDS1 goes through 3 AAA batteries in about a month or two.  I attribute this to the the heat in my garage.  One day I will get an Amseco ODC-59A so I can mount the HRDS1 near 110V and I won't have to keep replacing batteries. http://www.asihome.com/ASIshop/product_info.php?cPath=56_69&products_id=53

So I've got this working :) Two Z-Wave Relays :) One for each Door - I could just connected to single relay and have both doors open at the same time - But Two would work better.

I wasn't sure how to fix the relay - but was able to find a Single Gang box at home depot that would do it :)

@mysticjay

Sorry I have not posted pictures of my setup. It looks like you made out good. The box that I used. Not exactly this one, but I got it at lowes and it is the same manufacture is here:

http://www.lowes.com/pd_10029-1716-L5133709_0__?productId=3276255&Ntt=cantex&pl=1&currentURL=%2Fpl__0__s%3FNtt%3Dcantex%26page%3D2&facetInfo=

I got one that was deep. It was a few bucks, and it keeps everything clean and contained.

You need to start by editing the plugin files in a text editor such as textpad or similar with device numbers of your switch and sensor, once you have done this then upload both the files through the MiOS developers button and the LUUP tab (Do not use Internet explorer for this!!!), you'll have to scroll to the bottom to see this, once they are uploaded then go to the create device tab and enter a description, then in the UpnpDevFilename box enter the name of the device file name exactly the same garage door plugin device file that you uploaded earlier is named... (should be D_GarageDoor.xml if you never renamed it) this has to be the same case etc! Then in the UpnpImplFilename box enter I_GarageDoor.xml (presuming again that it wasn't renamed), then press the create device button.

You may have to save or restart once or twice to get it working after this.

If you are using a mac then use TextEdit, If you are using windows then you could use the built in text editor wordpad, or better still download textpad:  

Let me Google that for you

Once you've found either of those, then just open the I_GarageDoor.xml file in either and edit the SensorDevNum = XX and the ContactsDevNum = XX numbers with your respective Sensor and Switch/Relay device numbers.

Sure, you just need to find a good way to mount it!

The only issue with the AeonLabs Door/Window sensor for garage door monitering is that you cannot extend the sensor as you can with the HM-DW001 or Everspring Door/Window Sensor - page 2
