Wiring instructions for a motion sensing light switch

I am replacing a regular light switch with a motion sensing light switch. There are four wires on the motion sensing light switch, a red, green, black and brown one. I have two white wires from the wall that are twisted together and two black wires from the wall that are twisted together. How do I wire the wires on the light switch to the wires in the outlet box?

Where's the directions on the box or piece of paper that came with it?
Got a make and style #.
Look on the box does it happen to say it's for a three way switch instead of a sinlge pole that you need?
