While you wait for the z-uno board..

If you have wifi in your garage then you could use the same HC-SR04 distance sensor with a wifi arduino type board instead of a z-uno board. The circuit and code would be very similar but status reported over HTTP instead of via ZWave. From the SmartHome UI you would configure this as an HTTP Device (binary sensor). I just tried this and it works. The status is polled for by ZWay and appears in the Notification when it changes.

For my own home automation project I use a combination of zwave and HTTP devices all under the control of a raspberry pi / razberry daughter card and ZWay. The wifi/arduino boards I have used so far are ones from Adafruit (https://www.adafruit.com/product/2471) and ones from sweetpeas (http://www.sweetpeas.se/controller-modu ... sp210.html).
