Default Re: [Basic] Advantage of the Week (#38): Dark Vision, Night Vision

Technological devices are noted as granting Night Vision x, up to Night Vision 9 for the newest Gen III devices. I'm not sure if I've seen any explicit note that this Night Vision and the unmodified Advantage are identical.

In particular, technological Night Vision allows one to see IR illuminators and within the effective range of such an illuminator, darkness penalties are reduced by a further 2.

Should Night Vision bought as an Advantage allow this? Or would that require a a Perk or an Enhancement to the Advantage? If an Enhancement, what would the value be?

Personally, I'd be inclined toward making it a Perk, by analogy from other Perks in Enhanced Senses. I don't think it ought to be more expensive to add the capability to spot IR illuminators (and IR lasers) to Dark Vision than Night Vision.
