Elk m1xsp and Raspberry pi


I recently picked up an Elk M1EZ8 and an Elk m1xsp for a small studio shed in my backyard. My question is there anyway to interface the m1xsp with the raspberry pi? I want to run Homeseer of the pi, thanks!

I did see that lanbrown, thank you. I was wondering if the M1XSP could physically connect to the Pi effectively. I bought the M1EZ8MSI and that works fine for serial connections from my laptop, but I haven't tried it for the Pi yet. I suspect the M1EZ8MSI is what I needed all along. I had an M1XSP lying around, but it's so antiquated that I'm not sure if it's really worth my time to use.
