I'm trying to replace a very simple light switch with a Lutron WiFi switch. The existing switch simply has 2 black wires on it (and no ground that I can see) but the new Lutron switch has 5 wires !. Can someone help me. Pictures are attached of the old and new switches below

You need to determine which of the 2 black wires on the switch is the line (hot) wire and which is load. Hot wire to black, load wire to red. White switch wire to neutral
Green wire to ground. Cap the blue as it not used for a single pole switch

All fixed thanks. I worked out how to identify the hot wire
