Default retrofitting automatic headlights?

The Jetta dash has the hole for the light sensor.
Could you just retrofit a Passat automatic light switch and plug and play?
My Jetta just has fog lights in addition to the regular headlights/DRLs.
I hate having to turn on and off the lights!

it has to be wired into the cecm and coded for it to work. easy route is a euro switch and chinese auto light module. depends on the switch you have is the one you get. https://www.ebay.com/itm/AUTO-Headli...0AAOSwxR1dx6P1 https://www.ebay.com/itm/AUTO-Headli...0cbe143c671dd8

This sounds complicated.
I'd like to have a local Guru do this to my car.
Is there a TLDR
version?

the cheap switch with the sensor in it is easy. takes 2 min and no tools.

I've got 40% tint.
Would an interior sensor have the headlamps on more often?
But then, if it's an automatic switch, who cares.
Perhaps I've answered my own question.

I did the auto headlight retrofit on my bug, the “module” only lasted 7 months. The parking lights would not turn off in daylight, so I had to put the original switch back.
