Moved from Hassbian to Hass.IO - Bluetooth no longer working - Pi3+ - Any Suggestions?

After over a year running Hassbian, I decided to test drive Hass.IO
I enjoy the granularity of Hassbian and OS control, but Hass.IO offered some nice features.
All went well ( a few minor directory path adjustments). However, all my BT devices are not connecting.
Namely Xiaomy Mi Plant and BT thermometers.

I have restarted the Pi a few times and spent considerable time researching online forums with no luck.
Unlike hassbian, I can not find a command to probe the BT controller and ensure it is working properly.

Any suggestions?
