wiring a single pole ge sunsmart digital timer


my current switch has a black and red attached with the copper ground. I found the white (neutrals) bunndled together in the back of the switch box. I need to know what to do with the red and blue wires on the timer and the red coming from the switch box?

The switch with the white plastic box is the one in question. The red cap is the bundled white wires from the back of the box. The timer switch has a blck, white, blue, green, and red wire coming out of the back. I think I connect the black-black, white-white, green-green, but what about the red and blue?

These are simple one way switches.
One of those two wires is "hot" the other goes to the fixture.

The timer you chose should be returned to the store and replaced...
find a far simpler model meant for your simple need.

Here's an example of one to look for:
