An external temperature sensor allows your boiler to determine whether the flow temperature for the heating hot water for the radiators has been reached. It is an extremely useful device. Indeed, by triggering at the right time, a good installation can make you realize significant energy savings in the long term. Hence a lower electricity or gas bill. Regarding the positioning of the probe, the best is that it is located north of the housing. If it's impossible for technical or practical reasons, place it east. In this way, it will very quickly pick up temperature changes, in particular the large currents of cold air that hit France during the winter, via flows from the North or East.
