You could accomplish customized control of the thermostat by using the Energy Management System (EMS) objects. These objects allow you to write custom control logic that can change the simulation based on the internal simulation state.

I'd start by making an Actuator that would modify the Thermostat's setpoint Schedule. I believe that there are examples in the EMS Application Guide that are very similar to what you want to do.

Because the EMS objects are not accessible through the user interface, you'll have to add them via an OpenStudio Measure.
