Thermostat and Rad Valves?

I recently bought a wired thermostat (in the hallway) and 4 radiator thermostats in the lounge, dining room (2) and a bedroom.

I have read that I should have a wireless thermostat in one or more rooms too.

can someone explain why I need both rad thermostats and a room thermostat? Are they not both monitoring the temp in the room, so why do I need both?

    You do not need a wireless thermostat, but it can be added as an option when measuring the temperature at the radiators is not resulting in a good measurement of average room temperature. You can then place the wireless temperature sensor at a more appropriate place.
