My electrician quote me the following for my 2-room flat:

1) Downlight Points x 9 @ 35ea = $315
2) Covelight Points x 13 @ 25ea = $325
3) Double Power Points x 1 @ 80ea = $80
4) Hood Point1 x 1 @ 90ea = $90
5) Microwave Point1 x 1 @ 90ea = $90
6) Install HDMI cable2 x 1 @ 100ea = $100
7) Supply neutral wire3 x 5 @ 60ea = $300
8) Install Light Fittings x 28 @ 10ea = $280

Total = $1580

1Since my microwave and my cooker hood will be a bulit-in one, the plugs would be fixed to the socket inside the cabinet permanently, so my electrician will be installing a 2-gang double pole switch outside the cabinet for easy switching. This switch will then be connected to the two internal plugs for On-and-Off functions.

2There would be a total of 3 HDMI cables that would be lined in the feature walls and false ceiling, so he consolidated all 3 as one amount. Even for the HDMI cable, I managed to find the latest [available] version of HDMI protocol, i.e. 1.4 which could support IR control (to be elaborated below) and 3D videos. Even though the very latest is 2.0, 1.4 is good enough.

3I'll be installing Z-Wave switch modules for Home Automation system so they need neutral wires in the major lighting points.

As for others such as TV and data points, he offered to connect TV and optic cables. I told him that I do not need them as I'll be using the main termination point in the DB box compartment to connect directly to my network router and set top box. Thus, the latter does not need a TV splitter as in the photo below (even though there's one more TV point in the shelter, I doubt I'll need that too). Photo 1:

This is where I'll be centralizing all my TV and data devices such as the Starhub set top box, network router and external hard drives [whose data will be accessed wirelessly throughout the house via MyCloud connection] in a centralized compartment where my contractor is going to erect some shelving for those devices. Photo 2:

Since there are going to be 2 TVs (one in the living room and one in the bedroom), they're gonna be connected simultaneously using a HDMI splitter placed in the compartment above. And with regards to controlling of the TV channels, I only need to use one main set top box remote control whose transponder IR signals would be transmitted via the IR-over-HDMI connection but this could only be done using HDMI cable version 1.4.

So what do you think of the quote for a 2-room flat?
