About Spacetalk

Spacetalk has been specifically designed for families by school communication innovator,


SPACETALK LTD. is a leading technology company that listed on the Australian Stock Exchange in 2003 (ASX:SPA).

SPACETALK (then known as MGM Wireless) evolved from MGM’s discovery and pioneering in 2002 of SMS messaging in schools, to rapidly notify parents if their child was absent.

SPACETALK LTD’s technology revolutionised child safety across the world, as parents for the first time were notified within minutes of a child’s absence from school.


An SMS message from MGM prompted worried parents to question where their child was if not at school. To solve this problem, SPACETALK LTD created and developed Spacetalk, instantly connecting parents and children.


It took SPACETALK LTD over four years of painstaking research to design and develop Spacetalk. A device that has since been recognised by independent cyber security experts as meeting the highest possible standards in data privacy, security and European GDPR regulations.

In times of emergency, parents need to be able to instantly find and contact their children. Spacetalk is the solution, enabling parents to call, SMS or locate their child via GPS.

Behind SPACETALK’s success is an experienced company of skilled staff relentlessly pushing new boundaries in school mobile communication systems in Australia and internationally.

Since 2002, about 30 million parents and students in more than 3000 schools have relied on SPACETALK LTD's school systems. Education departments across Australia and New Zealand use MGM school technology to ensure children remain safe and secure.

All SPACETALK LTD. systems are regularly audited by governments to ensure they comply with the highest standards in data security and safety. All MGM staff undergo regular police checks to ensure compliance for working with children.

Great introduction

Excellent product. Great features. It was everything that we had hoped for and our child loves it.
A great introduction to a phone/smart device.
If it was waterproof it would be perfect.

Extremely happy

I am extremely happy with this watch that I purchased for my Autistic twins, it has given me piece of mind as I can track where they are as they tend to abscond.
Would love a longer battery life and for it to be waterproof.



Great Communication Device for Kids

My daughter just started high school, which involved her now traveling, as previously the primary school was only around the corner. I was hesitant to give her a full normal phone, but then I stumbled upon Spacetalk, did some research and was impressed, so bought one. Haven't looked back, and my Daughter is happy to have it as well. Well worth the investment.

Great alternative for kids not yet ready for a phone

Love being able to contact my kids whenever I need to and the comfort it gives us that they can contact us in an emergency. Certainly gives us the confidence to allow my kids to have a bit more independence. The only disappointing thing is the short battery life.
