Wireless Switch with Receiver Hook-up Help?

Hello!

I'm attempting to install a wireless light switch that activates a new light! Basically, it involves using this receiver (image below): Name:  IMG_3083.jpg

Which is going to connect to this new light fixture:

And replace this light bulb (which we have pulled out to maybe help highlight the wires inside, which appear to be a great jumble mess):

We've installed wireless switches before, and they were really straight-forward with which wires to attach them to - but this one is tricky because there are *SO* many extra wires, we aren't sure which ones we are actually suppose to connect the module/wireless receiver to/etc. The diagram from the wireless receiver is as follows: Name:  IMG_3084.jpg

Here are some close-ups to further show the wires that are in the junction box (*Note: they are still connected to the light bulb):Name:  IMG_3081.jpg

It just seems like there are 3 black wires, 1 white, and two beige wires as well as a copper wire (pictured below). Based on the schematic sheet, however, there isn't an extra 2 black whites, or an extra beige wire, etc. Any help would be appreciated!Name:  ImewMG_3073edited.jpg

  • Black of new light to red from receiver.
  • Discard white pigtail.
  • White of new light and white of receiver to wire nut B in diagram.
  • Black pigtail discarded.
  • Connect receiver black to power in black to wire nut A in the diagram.

All grounds connected together and pigtailed to the box.

Thank you *SOOO* much You are beyond helpful! One last question: just to clarify, the grounds are the beige colored wires?

No. I don't see any biege wires. Do you mean the white wires? White is neutral. Ground is green or bare.
