Wiiring for motion detector light switch

I just tried to change three way light regular light switch to a motion detector one and do not see the same terminals on the new one so not sure how to wire it.
Here are pictures of the old one and the new and would appreciate someone explaining to me how I wire the new one.
Thank you.

That switch looks like a 4w switch. It would be between two 3w switches.

If that switch has four screw terminals on it..... not including a ground screw... then it's a 4w switch. You'd need to go to one of the other two switches controlling that circuit or that circuit would need to be rewired.
