Knightsbridge Audio Visual was set up in 2011 by Malcolm and William Stewart. In 2005, Malcolm Stewart established Kensington Home Technology with two business partners. In 2012 Malcolm parted company with Kensington Home Technology and established KAV. Knightsbridge Audio Visual is in no way associated with Kensington Home Technology.

KAV has grown successfully since its establishment. In November 2013 we opened an office in Lagos, Nigeria and have consulted on several luxury projects. More recently, we are expanding to the Middle East and in the process of starting on projects in Doha, Qatar. Our consulting branch of the business has been expanding rapidly and at present we are consulting on projects worldwide.

We design, specify, install and maintain technology in high end residential properties in the UK and worldwide.  We never over specify systems and always recommend what we believe to be the most sensible system based on client brief, budget and requirements.

Our highly qualified multi lingual project management team usually talk to our clients in their own language and we currently have Russian, Ukrainian, French, Hebrew, Bulgarian, Romanian and Spanish speakers.

See below for more information about the technology systems that we work with.

We specify light fittings from the KAV Architectural Lighting (KAL) range and work closely with a lighting designer. For lighting control we would usually use either Crestron Lighting or Lutron.

KAV home automation control system
Home Integration & Control Systems

Home integration is where we give you control of the technology in your home through wall mounted touch screens, iPads, iPhones and various other devices. We normally use Crestron, Control 4 or Savant.

KAV television
Televisions & High Definition TV Distribution
We centralise your satellite boxes and movie servers and distribute the content to all of your televisions in high definition. As a result, the boxes and cables are cleared away out of sight, leaving just the television and a clean environment.
KAV data network installation
Data Networks, Phone Networks and Phone & Video Conference Systems
We provide and install state of the art communications in our projects for all data networking needs.
KAV satellite television
Satellite Television
We often install satellite television for international clients that require the channels.
KAV security
Security - Electronic & Physical
We usually install a combination of electronic (Alarm systems, CCTV) and physical (Security Doors and Windows, Panic Rooms, Safes) security on our projects through our sister company (Kensington Security Doors and Windows).  We can provide any level of security on projects and to date have completed 7 embassies in London as well as several hundred private residences.
Support & Maintenance
We pride ourselves on our levels of service support and are usually on site within two hours 24 hours a day (depending on level of maintenance agreement).  We feel the best way to offer excellent support is to be near our projects and being in central London, we are in a great location.
