You connect it the same way that your old light switch is connected.
I would also suggest you put tape on each wire and number them then take another picture
When you have done that it will be easier to tell you what to do.

But in short all the reds that are connected to each other go to the common terminals, the blacks go to L1, and the single red goes to the 3rd L1

Fret not, a forum is a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link to find out more.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?
