Default motion sensor switch

"aptpupil" wrote in message
. ..
i have a couple single pole switches for which i'd like to have a motion
sensor switch instead. the current switches have two wires connected: a hot
coming into the bottom and then the switched hot going out of the top to
the light bulb. when i looked around at the motion sensing switches it has
four wires (black, red [for the load], white and green) and says it
requires a neutral. i've never come across a switch that has a neutral
hooked up to it. what am i missing here?

Some of these switches require a neutral to power the device itself, some
don't. For example RAB makes a model LOS 800 occupancy sensor which requires
a neutral, and a model LOS 1000 , which does not : Here's a link:
