I receive a notification that Sentry Mode activated when opening the camera feed in the official Tesla app. Is that normal?

Yes, this is standard operation. The official app needs to activate Sentry Mode on the car to receive the live video feed, which isn’t distinguished by an activity-related activation. Hence, Sentry Pro will send you a notification.

This is actually a good method to verify that notifications are functioning, especially if you park in an area with a potentially poor network connection for the vehicle.
