We purchased 3 Arlo pro2 cameras. The unit on the front porch records color 24/7 due to the front porch light at night. We have 2 units in the back of the house that do not have a good light source and they record black and white at night. My question is will the Arlo lights allow these two units to record in color at night if they are properly placed with the Arlo Pro2 camera?

Generally, yes, as long as you realize the Arlo lights are only 400 lumens. It's bright enough for short distances so aim them down some - some trial and error may be needed.

As a PS...

the camera auto switch over to B/W when the light level falls below what is need for color... so if there is enough external light, as mentioned, it will record in color
