I would like to install low voltage recesessed lighting in a hallway I am remodeling,the hallway leads to a second floor. The lighting is basically just for use at night as a night light. I have three young children and I just want them to be able to see instead of feeling their way downstairs. There is a light at the top of the stairs that we use during the day, it is connected to a three way switch. I want to connect the rescessed lighting to a separate switch,it doesn't need to be a three way switch. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You might want to consider low wattage 120 volt lights instead of low voltage lights. Both would do fine other than your low voltage lighting are more dainty in reliability versus 120 volt lighting that seems to be more forgiving and considered to be more reliable in the long run.

If you install low voltage you must install a transformer somewhere to bring the voltage down.

You might want to check into what is called 120 volt step lights.

The following are some low voltage URLs you might want to visit.

Hope this helps
