switches for compartment lights?

has anyone figured out or found a product that can auto switch the compartment lights on when the door is opened? just like the fridge? maybe a small tilt switch or something mounted in the door? i put a mercury switch on my truck camper outside fridge door but that was 15 tears ago and then it was super hard to find a mercury switch. i was wondering if there was something more modern and less hazardous.

I have used magnetic switches on closet doors so the light goes on when opened.

Example on Amazon:
