Pet hedgehogs need daylight during the day to keep their sleeping patterns regulated. But they also need the option to have a place to get away from the light during the day.
This can be as simple as a piece of 6 inch PVC pipe, a plastic small pet house, or a fleece blanket/snuggle sack, all of which should be changed/washed every couple of days. Many hedgehogs prefer to have options to choose from, so placing a snuggle sack, plastic house and another hide in different places within the cage is a good idea.
