I am trying to install a switch that will replace a standard single pole switch that is in a 2 gang box like this.

This is the documentation that I have on the device. I tried wiring it but I must have had it wired wrong since it gave me an error when power was applied to it.


OK, so I don't know why it didn't work the first time I tried this, maybe one of the wires was loose or something. Anyway I connected the Black from the new switch to the hot black from the distribution box. The green to bare copper, the white to the bundle of all the whites and the red to the other black that goes to the light. For whatever reason it decided to work.
