I think Virtual weather station has a Homeseer plugin available.

Take a look at http://pe1bmm.dyndns-server.com/VantagePro
I have a VantagePro running with Cumulus software. A few months ago I startde writting a script for this sw with HS, not finished yet. There is also a existing plug-in for this combination at the HS-messageboard.
