there are also objects that can be influenced remotely, like busses that can put certain traffic_lights to green

I'd suggest something more specific like remote-controlled=yes/no/*

not sure for the second case, maybe remotely_controllable? values could be radio,wire,... or maybe proximity-controll=yes would be better in case of the bus or also for traffic junctions where policemen can set the lights?
