I have a free of the arlo pro cameras and fixing to add more I have a couple pointed in opposite depictions say at corner of the house or building/garage could I use one solar panel to power both without having to take down to charge?

Not with the current solar panels.  They're good to top off one camera but don't provide enough to do the same for two.

Someone in another said they were going to try a USB splitter. I don't recall seeing any follow up on this.

 

I have two panels installed.  One camera was at 61% battery life when I installed the solar panel.  It took 1.5 days to bring it to 100%.  This is with about 5 hours of it showing the panel is working.  Both have never dropped below 98% during the non charging hours

 

So, if your able to use a splitter of some sort, I would suspect that one panel likely would keep both topped off.   Both my cameras average about 15 30-second records each day. 

Of course, as fall and winter approaches, my performance may change.
