What makes a smart TV just turn on by itself in the middle of the night?

Home More advice Computers & Tech

This has been happening lately, day or night. It is not connected to the internet and actually is only used a few minutes a day.

We came home a couple times and it was on..........once we were having dinner in the kitchen and the TV in the living room just turned on.

Last night, (while I was at work) my wife was awakened to "voices" in the living room.
She grabbed a pistol and the phone because, being in a deep sleep, she thought someone was in the house...........(good girl)

Turns out it was the TV, she called me and I told her to unplug the thing.

What causes this?
