Is there a digital lock for panic hardware with a knob rather than a lever?

No, the Exidor CL1 and CL2 outside access devices have a handle rather than a knob.  The Disability Discrimination Act calls for the use of handles over knobs, as they are easier to use.

I am looking for an outside access handle/system through a door fitted with panic hardware inside. This is for after hours hotel guests to come and go. I need to ensure the door is self locking after access from both sides.

To do the job of locking automatically upon closing, we recommend the Exidor 305 mortice operators.  On the inside (push to escape) side of the door you have a normal push bar which comes with a lock case which is morticed into the door.  It comes with a euro profile cylinder and escutcheon as standard so guests may enter from the outside with just a key OR, if you would prefer to give guests a code to enter, then the CL1 mechanical digital lock (with a door handle) is compatible.  If you decide not use a CL1, then you might add a pull handle to the outside of the door.  The 425mm long “D” pull handle in Brushed Stainless Steel is the minimum to meet the Disability Discrimination Act.

I am looking to replace a digilock on a panic bar door. However I am interested in one that I am able to deadlock at night once everyone is out of the building. Is there such a thing?

You can use the CL1 outside access device mechanical keypad outside (compatible with an Exidor push pad or push bar inside).  This cannot be deadlocked, but it may be possible to add an additional separate deadlock to the door, but you would need to pass this with your local fire officer who will decide based on the usage of the building/door.
