If I wanted to use the below sensor with my arduino, how would I link it with my arduino?  Is there some kind of tutorial?  Will the only thing I need is an xbee system?

I doubt very much that uses Xbee, you need to find out exactly how this device communicates before you have any chance of using one.

Unless you are dead lucky and someone here has already use these you will have to get details form the manufacturer, good luck with that :)

too difficult, you probably need to hack it and figure out what communication protocol it uses. Why don't you use a cheap IR sensor, interface it with Arduino and use whatever RF communication you like?
