Special Consideration for Input Selects: If you find that the restriction card is blocking something you don't want blocked like an input select, try adjusting the z-index using mod-card

card:
  type: custom:mod-card
  card_mod:
    style: |
      ha-card {
        z-index: 7;
        }
  card:
    type: custom:restriction-card
