I bought a motion activated switch to replace my normal electrical switch.

When I went to instlal it, my old swith had 2 black wires, 1 red wire and 1 bare wired. I assume this is a 2 way switch.

The switch I bought has 1 green, and 2 black wires. Can I use the new switch with my the current 2 way switch?

Sounds like your old switch is part of a three way switching. It switches form more than one location.
The new switch does not sound like a 3 way switch. It should have three wire + ground.

What is the make and model of the switch?
