Now you can buy a smart-house at Amazon

Amazon is angling for a piece of the $83 billion homebuilding industry with its latest investment in Plant Prefab, a Rialto, Calif.-based modular home manufacturer.

This isn’t Amazon’s first foray into selling homes — several tiny home models are currently available for purchase on the website. However, this partnership is the online behemoth’s first venture into outfitting homes with its Alexa ecosystem starting from the ground up.

Trillion-dollar Amazon dipped into its venture capital account, known as The Alexa Fund, to back the startup, which uses automation to build more cost-efficient homes.

Many of Plant Prefab’s homes can be assembled and delivered for less than $500,000, and prices run the gamut from $160,000 for a modest 400-square-foot one-bedroom to $1.23 million for a five-bedroom, 3,100-square-foot house.
