3way motion activated switch

I have just purchased a Leviton Motion activated light control swith. This is rated as 3 way or single pole, and has 4 different coloured wires (red, black, yellow and green). My single pole swith has only black and white wires. No ground, no common wires etc. Where the hell do wires go. As expected the instructions are a joke. Appreciate any help.

Well, the instructions may be a joke, but you need to follow them.

The green wire is the ground. One of the other wires (most likely the black) is the common and the the other two are the travelers. Use the common and either of the travelers.
