I can't seem to figure out the new connection for the motion switch. My old 3 way switch appears to be the terminal end of the circuit. It has a white, black, red and ground(copper) coming in to the box - the switch controls two ceiling lights. The new motion switch has blue,white,black at the top and yellow & green on the bottom. I think the red is common, but not sure? I need help!

I suspect that the motin switch requires a neutral, whicm means you are going to have to
do some re-wiring to get a neutral at that
switch location.
