If you are 4th Waiver on parole/probation, cops still need probable cause to search residence.

In United States v. Grandberry, we learn that a law enforcement officer may not conduct a warrantless search of premises without probable cause to believe that the parolee does, in fact, live at that location. Just because the parole/probation condition states that a parolee “waived his 4th amendment rights, has reduced expectation of privacy, and his residence can be searched at any time (day or night) without a warrant by a LEO,” police must still have probable cause to believe that Parolee actually lives at that location before they search it. 730 F.3d 968 (9th Cir. 2013)

Even if you are a fourth waiver, continue to fight for your Fourth Amendment rights! Bring up suppression motions because you will be surprised when you win! And if you hire someone who knows what they are doing, your attorney will deliver results without surprises.
