I've decided to add a layer at the ceiling and rig a bunch of spotlights there. The distance will be about 60 cm between them.
Is there anything special to consider that a noob like me might miss?
I'm thinking light color, max brightness, direction, dimmers etc. Technical stuff, nothing design'ish.
(Being a noob, I'm not doing it myself. I hired an electrician, of course. But his responsibility is limited to, sort of, making usre I won't burn the house to the ground, nothing more.)
One specific "dream" I have is installing motion detector (indoors) so when I enter the hall (getting back home or preparing to head out), the light will automagically come up and then, when I've left, turn off by itself. Is that a stupid idea? I'm worried that it's not possible to adjust the detection area so that it only snatches the outer part of the hall and not the rest of connected area (which is my kitchen).
