Amendment IV Search and seizure

The fourth amendment gives people the right to secure their property, papers, house, against unreasonable searches and seizures. The police cannot search the people's property unless they have warrant.

I have never been in a real life example of this but I do have idea on how something like this can take place in a real life situation. Let's say the cops see a man walking around with his hoodie on looking really suspicious he's looking around him as if he's hiding something. Right away the cop has a suspicion about the man. So the cop follows the man and he ends up at the mans house. Of course a cop would say something like "Open up its the police we need to search this house!!" Or something similar to that. But according to amendment IV a police officer can't just search your or a persons property unless he has a warrant. I think that would be a real situation that would take place
