Pharmaceuticals is not the only market in sight for the former online bookstore.

Amazon has teamed up with builders and developers in the US to offer move-in ready smart homes equipped with smart home products activated and supported by its own in-house team.

These Smart Communities are now in 19 states and include products such as an Echo Show, Echo Dot, a wireless speaker, a smart garage door opener, smart shades, smart lighting, and a smart thermostat.

Buyers also receive a Ring Video Doorbell and a smart deadbolt that can issue virtual keys. You can even monitor the lock using an app.

Again, another challenge to the security offered by retirement living.
