About us

We are a local brand that is 100% Australian born and bred.

OzSpy Security Solutions

This is our home security and commercial security arm with access to all the big brands, as well as our own premium brand and SONY Starvis range (arguably the best bang for buck night vision in Australia).

We have been installing security systems and alarms across Australia since 1998 and stand proud as one of the countries oldest security firms, we started installing CCTV when cameras were black and white and the recorders were VCRs.

OzSpy Spy Shop

Our other arm is our SPY SHOP, which is Australia’s original and trading for decades (since 1998) bringing the US and UK concept to Australia.

Whilst there are many copy cat spy shops in Australia, there will always only be the original and the best, and we got there by ensuring our customers come first, and our quality control is second to none.

At OzSpy Spy Shop, we only sell quality Spy Gear that we have tested and are happy to put out name to if you are looking for a genuine quality covert camera or other surveillance device, you are in the right place.

OzSpy was founded in Tingalpa, Brisbane in 1998, in 2003 OzSpy opened its first franchise on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast and have expanded to have locations throughout Australia and stands today as Australia’s original and largest electronic security and surveillance equipment chain.

See a snippet from our history book below.

Such a long time ago

Our journey began in 1997

Late 1997 three friends having a few wines decided that it would be a great idea to create Australia’s first spy shop. It would be based on and inspired by the US and UK models. Before OzSpy, the public could not buy surveillance equipment from an Australian business.

We then set about researching it and found there were no competitors, just one website in SA that didn’t seem to sell to the public, so we decided to go ahead and start something new.

And that is exactly what we did. Our first store was opened in Tingalpa Brisbane in 1998 and looked a little bit like a fish and chip shop. We didn’t even have a logo for years, so it was a very different business then.

We broke all the rules

Before OzSpy, there was no bricks and mortar stores that sold DIY Home security or any form of spy gear. In fact, nobody could even tell us if it was legal to sell to the general public, and home security systems were virtually unheard of.

It was soon obvious that some people didn’t like what we represented. We had death threats, bomb threats and regular abuse, with some people actually travelling to the store to tell us off for ruining society.

Within 5 years of opening, we sold our first franchise in the Sunshine Coast and the franchise journey had begun.

Decades later

We are Australia's favourite Spy Shop

It has been quite a journey, OzSpy has faced the GFC, COVID, changes in legislation and overseas supply channels, and yet we are still here helping our clients with electronic security and surveillance equipment.

With sales to over 60,000 clients we are a favourite name for spy gear, home security and electronic security installations.

We have franchisees across QLD and Melbourne with a focus on growth post COVID.

Thanks oz spy, the cameras are great and I feel heaps safer. I want to especially thank Craig for the time spent on the phone with me reassuring me it was the right choice. I am so happy with the cameras on my phone, it is comforting to be able to see what is happening now, day or night

OzSpy Client
Just had a four camera security system installed by OzSpy. Brett was really efficient to deal with and the installer, Stephen, did a great job and was very particular to ensure all was right. I was very happy with the service and the price and would happily recommend this company to anyone looking for this type of security.
