I am replacing a single pole light switch with the motion sensor. I have two black wires, one red and ground. The two black are connected to 1 hot and 1 neutral. The red wire is common hot. How do I connect the Leviton with three connections...1 black screw, one red screw and 1 ground?

    Single pole double throw switch or 3 way ? The 2 blacks and common red as a hot sounds like a 3 way. Are there 3 contacts on the existing switch? + a green ground screw. – Ed Beal Feb 12 '19 at 20:41

    Gonna need a photo of what is in the box. I don't think that's neutral. Is it ever hot? – Harper - Reinstate Monica Feb 12 '19 at 22:22

    Can you post photos of the insides of the boxes? – ThreePhaseEel Feb 12 '19 at 23:49
