How Do You Put A Door Contact On A Double Sliding Door?

Hey everyone, I've got a stumper. I have a series of glass doors that have two sliding leaves. I really need to put door contacts on them so I can get door forced alarms. They are all metal as you can see. Since both parts of the door move, how do you put a sensor on them? (also, how do you do it neatly since the doors are all smooth)

When the door retracts, there's about 3 inches that sticks out. So, if you were to put the magnet on the door there would be room. However, when you look at where that spot is when the door closes, the motion REX is right in the way, so there would be no room for the sensor.

I was thinking about doing a wireless DMP contact with the TX on one door and the magnet on the other door, but these doors open hundreds of times a day, so I don't suspect the batteries are going to last very long
