Small skylights

Description
This is a picture of two small skylights used to light a windowless hallway. They function as two bright lights would throughout the day and don't allow much of the sun's heat in through the thick glass.
Location
This is at my house on calle Andres Viesca
Justification
This is a great means of saving energy, and using the plentiful sunlight that is already there, while minimally changing the temperature of the room.
Issues
The family is in the habit of turning light switches on as they walk into a room. Sometimes the light in between the skylights is on at high noon, merely a habit that's easy to break with awareness.
