Sorry to post again so soon. But just had another idea. Which seems to
work. But maybe there's a problem I'm overlooking?

Here it is:


local tShakes_Tally, tShakes_Time

on motionStart
   if tShakes_Time is not empty and the milliseconds - tShakes_Time > 1000 then
      put empty into tShakes_Tally
   end if
   put the milliseconds into tShakes_Time
end motionStart

on motionEnd
   add 1 to tShakes_Tally
   put tShakes_Tally into field "tNumberOfShakes"
   if tShakes_Tally >= 5 then
      put empty into tShakes_Tally
      send doTheChange to me in 0 milliseconds
   end if
end motionEnd


If there's a more reliable way...
