How to install a down light? 

With access to the attic

Find the location of where you want to place each light. Ensure there are no studs in these positions with your stud finder.
Trace the paper template on the ceiling with a pencil in the places you want them installed.
Drill a hole (1/4 inch) into the center of the circle drawn in the step above.
Check the attic above the hole to make sure there isn’t anything blocking the area such as insulation. A cover needs to be installed over the mounting.
Use a hole saw to make the space for the down light housing.
Feed the power source cable through the hole giving yourself enough slack to work with (18 inches or so of wire).
Wire the power source to your first recessed light fixture (hot to hot (black), neutral to neutral (white), ground to ground (bare/green).
Then wire that same fixture to the wires leading to the next fixture. Continue this process for every fixture.
Mount the housing and trim pieces as directed by manufacturer.
Turn on power and test lights.

Remember to clear all insulation away from the fixture!
