I make photos in old buildings with wooden floor and lot of visitors, there it is more than usefull to have sr on a tripod.
Have you ever done photos from a bridge with a lot of traffic?

Yes - but my impression was that even in those cases that SR was as likely to harm as help. I have not tried to experiment so I will assume you are correct and try this in the future with my wired remote. Thanks for the tip!

Don't think SR would help in this case. The bridge bounces by over an inch in the center and SR cannot compensate an inch worth of shake.

I wouldn't stay on the middle of Takoma bridge (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tacoma_Narrows_Bridge) at the November 7, 1940, taking photos, even pentax can't compensate this
But staying at the ends of the bridge like ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moselle_Viaduct ) ground you can feal the motions on a much small scale, and this can be compensated.

Pictures in such houses and Tourists walkling around ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Forest_house ) also benefits from the sr

From looking at the K-1 manual, I was disappointed to find that there was no 'bouncing bridge' mode in the K-1 SR menu.

I'm sure I saw that option somewhere in the stabilisation menu for a Tamron lens or Sony body. Pentax really do need to catch up.

An intervalometer is built into the K-1, so you may not need to worry about getting an external one.

The other remote functions you mention can also be handled via IR remote. The K-1 has IR receivers at the front and the back of the camera. Compatible Pentax IR remotes are available for about $5 on eBay.
You can also find a number of free apps for your phone to be an IR remote. Assuming your phone has IR emitter. My samsung galaxy s5 does.
