I only get notifications when I open the Tesla app live feed

This is an indication confirming that the app is functioning correctly, and you will receive notifications when Sentry Mode is activated in your car.

The Tesla app automatically activates Sentry Mode to access the video feed, prompting the system to notify you of this activation, even if no external event has triggered it.

If you would like to verify whether you will receive notifications when someone walks by your car, you can test this by approaching the car until Sentry Mode is activated. Ensure you do not have your phone with you, as its presence will prevent Sentry Mode from activating, recognizing that you are not a threat. Alternatively, you can have someone else trigger the activation.
