Eye-Fi - Motion Detect - Auto Delete

I would like to run a Motion Detection script on my Eye-Fi equipped Canon and have oldest files automatically deleted at some point.

I found a blog on the net with similar setup, but no script posted and no response from blog's author.

I found a post for a script that implements the auto delete using lua:

User mattkime posted the following:

Code: [Select]
counter = 0

repeat
counter = counter + 1
print(counter)
  press("shoot_half")
  repeat
    sleep(1)
  until get_shooting() == true
 
  press("shoot_full")
  release("shoot_full")
  repeat
    sleep(1)
  until get_shooting() ~= true
  release("shoot_half")
  sleep(500)
    local imgTable = os.listdir("A/DCIM/100CANON", false)
  os.remove("A/DCIM/100CANON/"..imgTable[1])
until false


Are there lua based fast motion detection scripts that I could use to get started? A complete script with auto delete would be better.

thank you in advance!
