SmartThings multipurpose sensor installation on outward opening door

Hey all, new to SmartThngs. I want to install the multipurpose sensor on a door that opens outward. The difficulty is that with a door that opens outward, the door is inside the door frame and as a result doesn’t align with inside wall. Will it work if you install them at a 90 degree angle from each other?

This is how I handled my out-swing exterior garage door. The included 3M tape hasn’t moved or shifted in a year since the install.


Yup, either way will work.

That’s an easy way to go about it, thank you!
