Opening House Cabinets with Daedalian keys is fairly simple.

Before you can open each House Cabinet in Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll first need to learn the Alohomora spell so that you can open locked doors. This useful spell can be unlocked by progressing through the main story. 

You’ll then need to talk to Nellie Oggspire, who will appear in the Astronomy Tower after you’ve finished the “Welcome to Hogsmeade” Story Quest. Once you’ve finished speaking with her, the Daedalian Keys will spawn on the map.
