The ability of electricity to be turned on or off by a switch is paramount to the operation of all things electrical.

to use electricity to switch on or off via relay or transistor allows for one action to cause something else to happen.  When you add enough of these together you get logic gates.  Add enough logic gates together an you have a computer.

Switching is important in all levels of electronics.

A switch is in need of an index finger or thumb to occasionally change the state of things.

Generally, they just need love and attention, and perhaps a bit of kibble every now and then.
