I'm MUCH more familiar with Ohio law on this.  I did just do a websearch and 
from what I see, notice is required to enter the dwelling unit.  The law 
pertains to privacy, and as such, I would think that if the area your in has 
a reasonable expectation of privacy, then notice should be required.  If its 
not(ie visible from the street, etc), then notice is probably not required.  

here's a link to UCB(it appears generic to CA)'s thingy on rental law:
