DIY ON grid solar PV battery storage

In my new house I am soon to be building I will of course have solar PV on the FIT with a grid tie inverter. The "normal" thing is to have a dump controller to use surplus solar PV to heat hot water. But I want to implement a battery storage system to capture surplus solar pv in the day and use the stored energy in the evening. As a DIY system it's pretty simple to arrange charging of the batteries only when there is surplus solar PV that would otherwise be exported, in the same way you would divert energy to an immersion heater.
