Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

W,Y,G,R all correspond the the same terminal designation on the new thermostat but you'll need a C wire (24 volt common). Since it looks like you have AC I'll need to know the brand and model of your furnace.
