I've been working on a project that controls the headlights and fog lights on a car for various purposes.  It's an acrylic box holding a voltage meter, a radio transceiver, an arduino UNO and an 8 relay module and various wiring.  When a transmitter unit talks to the controller, the controller runs one of 3 or more programs that control the headlights, foglights and/or horn as a pattern to alert oncoming traffic (think police car).  Each relay is wired to each light and the day time running lights are wired in the NC position so they can function while there are no patterns being displayed.  When a pattern is engaged the day time running lights go into the NO circuit disabling them to enhance the display of the pattern.

The control box receives commands through a radio module located in the cab which can also be used to open garage doors, turn on outdoor lights, etcetera.  The video explains it all.
