How to set AC to turn the heat on automatically at midnight?

Customer Question

How to set AC at a certain temp and then set a time in the middle of the night for HEAT to turn on? I have been using the "SCHEDULE" and that does NOT turn on anything automatically if my thermostat is set to either an opposite temp or OFF. If I have a time for "WAKE" it should turn on automatically, correct?

Do you have the manual on the thermostat? If not I am attaching a link.
