Not everything that glitters is gold

The large majority of hidden spy cameras currently on the market are cheaply made and unreliable. Some devices don't even make the trip home from the store but there are a lot of great devices from some very reliable manufacturers. It can be difficult to track down and sort out the good from the bad. We pride ourselves on finding and selling only the best and most reliable equipment. With thorough testing and a direct line of communication with manufactures we can confidently supply surveillance equipment that is not only reliable and good quality but equipment that is truly good value for money.     


About us

Established in 1992 as the first store of it's kind in South Africa. Spy shop has gone on to provide equipment and services to many Film studios, businesses, government agencies and of course the general public. With years of knowledge and experience we will provide you with only the best tried and tested products available on the market. Everything we stock has gone through vigorous testing and quality control to make sure only the best products are sold at any time. If a product is deemed unreliable it will not go on sale in our store and if an unreliable product slips through it will be removed permanently. However our Budget range is not subject to the same strict testing because the necessity for affordable products is essential to many people. The budget range is the best of what is available in that price range and we are still confident in the quality of all products within that range.
