Although some states allow law enforcement with a warrant to place a GPS on someone’s vehicle (and some states allow law enforcement to do this without a warrant), it can be argued that the placing of a physical object on someone’s property, without their permission or a warrant, violates the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable search and seizure.
