Smart TV spurious connection requests

I've got two Samsung Smart TVs: A 5 Series and a Q90 both connected to the same network at home.

I've been getting occasional requests on both to allow or deny remote access, presumably from something running smart things.

One device was a Huawei phone, the other an Apple phone.

I denied both requests.

I have neither of these devices.

I'm both puzzled and concerned: how is this request being generated. My Wifi network is password protected and a search of my network (using a phone app) revealed no such devices being connected and I can make the assumption that no one has gained physical access to my LAN and its all inside my house with no visitors.

Thanks.

The Televisions themselves can act as access points individually of your internal LAN, it's people walking past your house or your neighbours.
