Tube skylight, Solaro Day, or just an LED fixture?
We have a back hallway in the house we're building that will need to be lighted. We're definitely not getting a standard skylight. My wife wants a tubular skylight. I've been looking at a product called the "Solaro Day" PV fixture which uses a small solar panel on the roof that powers an LED ceiling fixture inside. It uses DC power, to light Osram LEDs. Here's a link: http://www.katahdincedarloghomes.com/110910solaroday
The Solaro has the advantage of needing only a 1/2" hole in the roof and ceiling. The Solatube would be at least a 10" and bigger hole in my beautiful pile of attic cellulose. Question: Does anyone have any experience with the "Solaro Day" fixture? On Amazon, which sells it, there's only one EXTREMELY negative review. There's another answer to my question, of course: just buy a bright LED fixture and put it on a motion sensor. What do people think of the options? Thank you!
