Headlight dim on turn indicator activation?

I run the AlphaRex LED headlights on my '12 SR5.

Many new vehicles with led headlights of course have the feature that shuts off the headlight on the same side to increase visibility of the turn signal when activated.

This could be accomplished with a timing relay and some fiddling, but I'm wondering is anyone knows of a ready made plug and play solution that would have the same functionality?

do you mean the daytime running light? I've never seen a vehicle shut off low beams when headlights are on in favour of a turn signal. only daytime running lights

I didn't know lack of turn signal visibility was a problem. Seems like turning off a headlight is a bad idea.

Just replace the turn signal bulbs with LED which are much brighter. A lot easier than playing with the head light.
