Occupancy Sensor Wall Switch Requires a Load Line, What if I don't have one?

Newbie

This is for the product 002-ODS10-IDW Occupancy Sensor Wall Switch. I recently got this product, read the instructions, and realized that this product needs a load line. I have a light switch that doesn't have a load line. It only has 3 wires which are black = hot, white = neutral, and bare copper = ground. I tried connecting the black to black, blue to white, and copper to green. When I turned on the main the power, the light stays on. None of the functions work on the switch and I don't see any LED lights turning on. I even switch it to the 30 second test setting and the light does not turn off at all.

 

Does this mean that I can't use the occupancy sensor at all?
