What does this button do?

A question often asked in our house as we gaze at this on the stairhead wall...many theories have been put forward, a remote starter for the generator (nope, tried it), a central heating central control switch (ditto), master fusebox trip-switch type thing (don't even know what that is), panic button of some sort...all bearing absolutely no fruit whatsoever.

So it was with no small sense of worry that I spotted a picture in yesterday's Guardian Weekly which suggested that our innocuous looking device might, even as I speak and casually flick it on and off, be doing all sorts of untold damge to the stability (or otherwise) of world peace...
