-4 bytes by looping over a string like (YYY) like the Charcoal answer

63 bytes would work if 2 didn't need to be handled :/

Explanation:

d,*l=" _%c_     , [___]   , /:' \   ,|::   |  ,\::.  /  , \::./   ,  '='    ".split(',')
# d is the second row, without the (, Y, or ) to connect the light to the strand
# l is the third through eighth rows in a list
x=int(input())-2
# x is the number of lights in the middle of the strand
print(' '*3,-~x*'.--.__.--'+'.\n',d%'(',d%'Y'*x,d%')')
# print x+1 wire segments and a trailing dot, starting four spaces over
# on the next line, print the connectors, _(_, then _Y_ * x, then _)_
for s in l:print(s,s*x,s)
# on the Nth line, print the Nth light row, a space,
#     x * the Nth light row, a space, and the Nth light row
