My front door opens on to a very small hall with stairs in front. I
want to install a light pendant above the door. At the bottom of the
stairs is a double light switch which is for the light at the top of
the stairs and for a external light by the front door.
Under the floor above the hall I have located two cables which come up
directly from above the switch below. One cable goes off in the
direction of the stairs while the other goes towards the outer wall
and I assume down to the external light.
I would like the new light to come on when the external light is
turned on. Do I just cut into the cable for the external light (power
off of course) add a juction box and run a cable for the new light off
it to the ceiling rose? If so how do I wire the junction box?
